Shamelessly taken from BadWeb:

Just watched Erik Buell and the folks from Erik Buell Racing on the Craftsman Garage Show. About the coolest thing he mentioned was that they had a complete range of bikes in the works including the RX-11, the SX-11, and the AX-11.

AX has GOT to mean "adventure sport"! All you guys that wanted an 1125 powered Uly, sounds like you may get your wish in a couple of years!

A close friend of Erik's, a guy named Court Canfield, replied with a few hints that this maybe closer than 5 years away............. Just sayin.  Cool

It wouldn't be that expensive - they can recycle a lot of the engineering from the ULY and 1125.

Then why is the 1125RR now priced at about $42K?
Did they not 'recycle' the engineering from the 1125R?

He's clueless and has proven that time and again with his posts in here.    

Another closet Buell lover that never got a chance to buy one so he feels the need to denigrade the brand and put down posts by other owners to make himself feel better that he got a Guzzi.  

Some people just can't help but be negative.  Best to stay clear of them.  Those are usually folks that never get anywhere in life.

Glad to see everything is ramping up for EB. I slabbed it just to Camarillo and back today and came home with a stiffy. The outside temperature was just perfect for the bike. It wanted to go into hyperdrive every minute of the ride, but I wouldn't let it.

Maybe I should see a psychiatrist so he/she can help me identify what it is I'm running from. That way I'll know exactly how far I need to ride and be done with it!

There have been a few interviews where Erik has mentioned that more affordable models are currently in development.

I will be just as interested to see the EBR dealer network.

I've owned two Buells, an M2 and a Uly, so there. What have I said here to make you feel that I've 'denegrated the brand' ?
Anyone can own a Guzzi, it's just another moto, like a Buell,  with a poor delaer network and piss poor customer support.
I've done OK , mensa material. Got a great daughtet, retired 7 years ago, ride 20-25K miles a year, shipped a bike to Europe and will spend the summer riding Tuscany, Provence,  Corsica, and the Alps from France to the Czech Repiblic. I promise to keep in touch! Inlove

 And you??

AX has GOT to mean "adventure sport"! All you guys that wanted an 1125 powered Uly, sounds like you may get your wish in a couple of years!


Is everyone assuming an adventure-bike based on the "AX" designation, or did he say something specific?  With my very limited test riding of the 1125CR, the engine experience did not lend me to think "Adv-bike".  The Thunderstorm engine seemed a better match for that, imho.

Here is the video, though I've not gotten to watch it yet (nearly an hour in length).

The 1125 motor could work in an adventure bike.  Different gearing and heavier flywheel & pistons would make it smoother in the low RPMs.

You generate negativity in all your posts.  Everything you have been spouting off so far is to denigrade the brand you know nothing about.  I don't believe for one minute you owned a Buell.  

Why are U so focused on price and you keep bitching about it?  If you are Mensa material then you should be smart enough to understand some business sense in manufacturing costs of low volume, hand built motorcycles.  Yet, you seem clueless to it and keep whining.  Are you one of those who think they are smarter than everyone else but is actually partially Autistic & schizophrenic?  If you are not interested in Buells, why even bother coming here?  To piss people off?  To pump yourself up and make yourself feel better?  Who really cares about your family and your other qualities?  We are suppose to be impressed?  On the contrary.  You sound like someone who needs to be constantly reminded that you don't know jack shit about certain things.

It's not very difficult to turn an engine to produce a flatter torque curve and tune it with smooth fueling at low RPM.  Triumph was able to that with their 675 Triple.  

Having said that, I agree with you.  The Thunderstorm was perfect for that role, lighter, and much simpler.

I always thought having the Thunderstorm and the Helicon around were complimentary to each other.
