I like that naked version they have. I doubt I'll ever own one, but I admire what Erik Buell is doing.

I feel the same way, and I bet a majority of people do as well. Asking $19k is a stretch with the competition of proven manufacturers out there.

You guys realize msrp for a new Japanese liter bike is like 15.5k? Ducati Panigale is 19k? God only knows what a BMW costs. But I guess you've already given up on EBR and moved onto all those other 185hp new-built American bikes

Nope. Wrong price point.

The issue is less the cost of the bike than the performance compared to the other bikes. The EBR is in the same price range as the Ducatis and BMW's but performance wise the EBR performance wise it is in the Hysoung range.

If your gonna charge premium prices it is not unreasonable for people to expect premium performance. When BMW dropped the S1000RR (2014 pricing is $15,500 btw) they were able to charge the money they do because it performs like no other. Compare that to the KTM RC8 (2014 pricing is $16,500 btw) which has done okay......looks wise they knocked it out of the park but from a performance standpoint not so much....hence sales of the KTM not exactly lighting the world on fire.

I think most of us are pulling for EBR but it is hard to part with hard earned money for a bike that does not have the power or handling of competitors that come in for a few thousand less. If the EBR was lighting up the world in at least one category it would have a leg to stand on but they are fighting to establish themselves in a category of the motorcycle world that is based purely on performance.

After all that typing I am still excited to see the EBR being sold in a local dealership and happy they continue to claw their way back.

I do think it's cool Coleman's is taking a chance and stocking these bikes.


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

Is this all some practical joke to shine me on? A 72hp Hyosung?
