EBR announces two new models on the way

OVER THE weekend, convalescent US manufacturer Erik Buell Racing (EBR) announced in a press release that it’s got two new bikes in the pipeline.

Bill Melvin, CEO of EBR’s owner Liquid Asset Partners, and the man ultimately in control of EBR’s revival, said that the frist of the two new offerings will arrive this autumn.

Although the new bike will likely be based on the firm’s existing 1190 platform, which EBR is working to expand, it will be the first expansion of EBR’s range since the firm was rescued from near-fatal financial difficulties at the start of the year.

Melvin said the new bike would be ‘Quick, dark and low’ and that it would be ‘exciting for urban street riders'.

More significantly, the company is also working on creating a ‘sub-$10k platform’ for 2018 – a domestic alternative for US buyers of cheap Japanese bikes, and a model that could give a EBR a substantial shot in the arm if successful. 

EBR also said that it’ll be attending various motorcycle shows in the US, where it will be showing prototypes of its forthcoming models.
