The Buell brand has always interested me, the guy made a fairly competent sport bike out of a Sportster engine...who does something like that??   Anyway, the brand has lived and died more than once from what I understand, and now it looks like they are trying something different (not like anyone would expect anything else). 

Check it out, post up what you think.

Wonder what the boys at KTM are doing - Laughing or have an eye raised with concern.  Time will tell.

I'd like to know how much input Eric Buell (if any) had in the design.  I might be mistaken, but one iteration of a Buell come back was with the purchase of the name "Buell" and Eric Buell didn't have anything to do with the company.  Is that the case here...

I doubt that KTM wastes more than the time reading the article.  

I think you're correct about the Buell thing?  Would be bad to lose your very name in a deal like that!

I read that this will be the fastest production dirt bike in the world. 185 hp I believe. This thing is a monster.
