Latest news in Motor Cycle News here in UK:

Eric Buell is starting production of the "road-legal" BUELL 1190RR.
The bikes will be on sale in 2011 at the earliest.

Buell has severed all connections with HD and is not allowed to use any of HD intellectual properties, hence some delays in sourcing some components for his bikes (lights, switches, etc...).

Buell is raising $7m, to open a new manufacturing facility, completely independent from his former Troy factory.
Production is expected to be about 1000 a year at the begining.

All this in MCN dated 11/08/10.
