Edda Design Revamps the Buell 1125R
In an effort to keep the Buell spirit intact, yet giving it a fresh approach in terms of design, Edda Design came up with a project that would appeal to younger riders.
“Buell wanted to get a fresh look for the new entry in their famous and revered long line of motorbikes,” the guys at Edda Design say. “Whatever direction we took the project in, it was essential for us to keep the "Buell spirit" intact.”
Meanwhile, with Buell reborn as Erik Buell Racing, the world gets ready to welcome a 1190cc v-twin American street bike. Dubbed EBR 1190RS, the bike draws inspiration from the now defunct Buell Barracuda 2. However, official details on the new model are to be released after the agreement with Harley-Davidson will end in February 2011.
"There was no question that we had to start work on a new street motorcycle design for 2011, but we also knew we had to go racing at the highest level in 2010. The solution came from suggestions on our social media sites, where race fans told us they would support us directly if we would just set up a site. We could not have made the last four rounds of the series without these contributions, as we simply needed to invest our money into the new motorcycle," Buell stated back in September,
