EBR Motorcycles struggled a lot in the past, but it looks like it managed to stay alive and actually be profitable as the company recently revealed their plans for 2017, which include a new model to be shown.

“It has been an amazing summer since the new EBR was launched. You can imagine the challenges of restructuring the new company, but we have made really nice progress building our base for 2017 to launch this week,” said Bill Melvin, owner of EBR.

The company is planning to attend the International Motorcycle Show (IMS) in Long Beach on November 18th, where you can expect to see its new 2017 lineup along with its newly formed EBR Apparel division that will provide featuring branded clothing for owners and fans.

“Our quality is continuously improving, our supplier relationships established, and now we are looking towards the future,” Melvin continued. “This fall, we have something ‘Quick, Dark, and Low’ in the works that should be exciting for urban street riders, and we are making real progress on expanding the range of models of the 1190 platform, as well as developing and delivering accessories that our EBR riders want.”

If you ask me, that sounds exactly like describing a small power cruiser opponent for, say, the Ducati Diavel or Harley Davidson Street 700. We only hope it is going to be more affordable. And regarding at the fact that EBR’s new lineup will include models priced under $10,000 (€8,880), this could be true.

EBR’s current lineup holds three models - the 1190 SX performance naked, 1190 RX faired version and the EBR 1190 RS flagship that can be easily used for track racing. The long awaited AX is still being kept in the dark, though.

The company definitely had some bumps over the last year, but now it looks like its road has straightened out and will continue to take Erik Buell’s classic motorcycle story further into the future.
