Their 1190cc power plant is making 185 hp and 101.6 ft-lb and looks to be featured in the 4 models pictured below. They say they are going to release 10 models between now and 2024.

The question is, will Erik Buell find success this time?

Erik has nothing to do with it this time. He is pursuing electric bikes. This is just another company using his name. There is a good thread on the wera forum about this.

From what Ive read, it kinda seems like a money laundering scheme, or a tax strategy for a bigger more successful business.

So we should expect bankruptcy soon to subsidize big tax write offs for the parent company.

Who knows what will happen. This is an interesting read though. This kinda makes it sound the company just had a bunch of parts that they bought for cheap, and decided to make a few bikes out of them.
