My son had an issue with his bike when he bought it used, a crack in a weld on the swingarm and it was leaking oil... A posting on another forum seen by the right person who was close to Erik and a new swingarm was installed at no charge.. My son wrote Erik a thank you letter and Erik wrote back.. I know of no other motor vehicle company (car/truck or motorcycle) that would have gone to that level of service.. that is why I ride and support Buell.. I would find a way to buy a new one if the pricing dropped in the sub $20K range..
Now that is service and the way things should be, I am looking at the carbon edition 1190 just trying to see what else he has in the pipeline

So does this mean we might get the FXR back?

Wouldn't that be nice? Harley hasn't designed a bike that will turn since he left.

That's an insane amount of hp/torque for a pushrod v-twin engine!
I love it!

I don't think that is for a pushrod V twin.

I believe it is for the OHC Rotax V twin based off the one used in the 1125R.
