I think we all do!

There's not been much chatter other than it's being planned and I bet it'll be sweet!

Erik and friends play their cards pretty close to their chest these days. I've heard it's mostly because they got burned by a pre-production/preview ride and review for the 1125R that one of the magazines put out and never bothered to come back for an update with the actual production model.

if you are quick and lucky, a source familiar with the organization will sometimes let details slip on certain forums, but he always comes back quickly to cover his tracks.

In an interview in Cycle News last month, Erik said the AX will be coming out "a year or so from now". Sounds like we can expect the SX later this year.

Click on the words "Interview- Erik Buell in the Catbird Seat" on the "magazine cover" to take you straight to the article.

You're not alone... I suggest you ride your Ulysses (or other Buell) for another year and then we can start talking about the Ax

Also, this motor makes 180 hp more or less. Does that strike anyone else as excessive for a 500# adventure bike? I mean fun and all but Jeez!

I'm curious, but I hope it turns out better than the Ulysses.

Cycle news article

Thanks Hugh
I only heard that it might have a hi-tech adjustable suspension! On the fly to transition from road to off-road! Maybe electro/mechanical (air suspension)?
I only hope it has only around 155 hp instead of 185 for better Eco,reliability,
And low end torque! More like what KTM did with their 1190 ADV! Also maybe a little longer wheelbase (55-56) in. Than the rx

Me too. The U had a lot of promise, initially.

??? A lot of us are quite happy with our Uly's.

I'm sure the 1190AX is gonna be in a whole 'nother class, since it'll be going head-to-head with the latest ADV bikes, which have come a long ways since the Uly was introduced 2005.

We all are hoping a something is coming from EBR to feed the adv market. Until then my Uly and KTM 1190 will just have to tide me over

I hope EBR keeps the muffler underneath like the traditional Buell design. It allow the bike to be fitted with for very large saddlebags and no need for skid plates.

Any maybe make it so the muffler doesn't turn into iron oxide within weeks?

Just have it powder coated and it'll be fine

Mine is 7 years old, and other than being gutted for a Drummer, the exterior is all original and still black.
