The Buell Motorcycle Company was founded in 1983 by ex-Harley-Davidson engineer Erik Buell. Harley-Davidson acquired 49% of Buell in 1993, and Buell became a wholly owned subsidiary of Harley-Davidson by 2003. In late 2009, Harley-Davidson announced its split from Buell in order to concentrate on the Harley-Davidson brand. In November 2009, Buell and Harley-Davidson announced the launch of Erik Buell Racing. Run independently by Erik Buell, initially they only produced race-spec 1125R motorcycles. Eventually, they offered an updated 1190RS model for the street or the track, and they continued on with a further improved 1190RX model which is also intended for street and/or track use.
The first Buell motorcycle, the RW750, was built in 1983 purely for the AMA Formula 1 motorcycle road racing championship. At that time, Erik Buell was a top contending privateer motorcycle racer.
The most commonly known Buell models are:
RW750 Road Warrior | RR1000 Battletwin | S2 Thunderbolt | S1 Lightning | X1 Lightning | S3 Thunderbolt | M2 Cyclone | Blast | XB-Series | 1125-Series | Buell XBRR | Buell 1125RR
