“When we said Buell is Back, we meant it,” said Bill Melvin, CEO of Buell Motorcycle Co. “We have former executives from Buell, General Motors, Lotus Engineering, Toyota, and Bombardier Recreational Products ensuring we are manufacturing and developing the highest quality products. Now we are putting the finishing touches on our factory and kicking off production of the Best American Superbike on November 1, the Buell Hammerhead 1190. Buell is Back!”

The Buell Hammerhead 1190 will have a Grand Rapids, Michigan built and proven 185-horsepower high-performance 72-degree V-Twin engine with 13.4:1 compression, sporting EFI with 4 injectors and exerting 101.6ft-lbs of torque. Buell’s unique chassis and braking system is the key to its success on the racetrack and on the road. The Hammerhead has a specialised aluminium Fuel-in-Frame design which provides strength, lower centre of gravity, and added balance unmatched against the competition. Buell’s unique single perimeter front braking system reduces the unsprung weight to allow the rider unsurpassed performance and feel during turns. And at just 419 lbs., it’s nimble and quick.

With the Hammerhead going into production, innovative technology and products in our pipeline, and our online reservation system changing the industry, we’re lean, mean and on the move!”
