Eric Buell Racing Turns The Key Again

When a liquidation company bought Eric Buell Racing out of bankruptcy in mid-January, many in the motorcycle industry thought it was the end of the manufacturing road for a well-loved name.

However, it appears Liquid Asset Partners are following through on the promises and intentions made at the time of the purchase. Instead of liquidating the assets of Eric Buell Racing, Bill Melvin, CEO of Liquid Asset Partners said at the time they wanted to help the motorcycle manufacturer continue its production.

“I believe Erik Buell Racing (EBR) has established themselves as one of the premier motorcycle manufacturers in the world and has strong potential as a viable business,” Melvin said in a press release dated January 15th,”Our sale process will enable the proper exposure of the company and price flexibility that may better fit a new owner to move forward with operations.”

These statements were met with a degree of cynicism in the motorcycle industry as well from its media. It appears those critics may need to order a round of humble pie.

A press release issued today invited the motorcycle media and Eric Buell fans, maybe we call them Buellies, to an open house to celebrate the resumption or production at Eric Buell Racing.

‘Get ready to throw a leg over the ‘American Sport Bike,’ turn the key, and twist the throttle! EBR Motorcycles resumes production beginning March 1 with a stable financial plan in place from Liquid Asset Partners,’ the press release reads.

This latest Buell incarnation, EBR Motorcycles, LLC, will start with production of 2016 1190RX and 1190SX motorcycles with the first bikes scheduled to roll off the line March 17th. The moment will be celebrated with the public, Buell Nation, and EBR fans at an EBR launch party on March 18 at the EBR motorcycle factory on Buell Drive in East Troy, WI.

“I am really looking forward to the launch and the press day. I have dedicated my life to this and want to get the word out on how great our motorcycles are,” said Erik Buell, Founder and CTO.
