The 1190RS looks good in basic black.
The 1190RS looks good in basic black. There are plenty more pictures available on the new Buell website.

Want a new 1190RS superbike from Erik Buell Racing? According to pricing released on the company’s new website, it’ll only set you back $39,999 US.

The company’s new site does more than just show off the beautiful 1190RS – it also gives some hints of what’s to come for Mr. Buell in his drive to build and sell innovative motorcycles. Not only does the site list specs and pricing for the new superbike, it also indicates that RX, SX, and AX models are under development. We’re betting this means we should expect an adventure bike, a naked bike, and a track bike in the future, similar to Buell’s old lineup when he worked for Harley-Davidson.

  1. I want some of what Erik Buell’s smoking, ’cause it must be some good shit!  $40k for a Buell?  It’s nice, but not that nice.  And a new BMW will probably still spank it.  Best of luck to him.
