that is one sweet looking motorcycle.

Is this a one off? Or is this something you can actually buy?

Sorry don't know much about the 1190

I'm pretty sure you can just buy one (if you have an extra $20,000 lying around.)

These bikes look awesome. and they better for the hefty price that they command.

185 HP is crazy for a motorcycle. These things go really fast!

Yea that 185 HP is a lot when you consider that the bike weighs 419 lbs. This may be only the second model from Buell but it is clear that Erik Buell means business with his bikes.

You can read a little more about the bike on Road and Track.

it is a racing bike, but it is also in production. It is street legal. I'm not sure about what other models are in the works right now. I think that Buell is focusing on high powered bikes though. I am not expecting a casual bike from them.

According to the website:

"October 18th, 2013 – We are currently working on our dealer network. A list and more information about your local dealer will be available here soon. Please check back for updates.

We’re looking for dealer partners who understand the value of offering riders the chance
to own one of the most exciting sport motorcycles ever to come out of this country."

So it seems like they are working on that right now. They've got nice bikes but they don't seem to have anywhere to sell them from.

interesting.

well considering they closed down their network I guess they now have to convince dealers to just carry this very limited model.

As long as it makes sense from a business stand point I'm sure dealers will carry the bike. I mean I think that there is demand, so as long as it would be profitable and such, they shouldn't have a problem. I am guessing that getting a new company off the ground is difficult, but getting dealers to carry the bike is likely far more easy than building the bikes in the first place.
