Quote: Erik Buell Racing, in East Troy, says it has secured financing from GE Capital to build a motorcycle dealership network.
The company, founded by motorcycle racer and former Harley-Davidson employee Erik Buell, says the financing from GE Capital's Commercial Distribution Finance unit will allow dealers to stock, market and sell a wide variety of motorcycles and related products.
Buell's first production motorcycle is the EBR 1190RS, a street bike that sells for about $40,000. The company also says it's developing other models aimed at the high-performance motorcycle market.
"As we ramp up our production capabilities and introduce other models, it's great to know that we have a finance company that can support us as we expand," Erik Buell said in a statement.
In 2011, GE Capital says it provided nearly $32 billion in financing for more than 30,000 manufacturers, dealers and distributors in North America.
