In an astonishing move Harley-Davidson has stopped all Buell production and no more Buells will be built – ever!

The announcement was made this afternoon by company founder Erik Buell himself in a video posted on the Buell website (link here).

A clearly emotional Erik Buell thanked customers for their support and said he was very proud of what the firm had achieved in the last three decades, that all customer bikes’ warranties would be supported by company owners Harley-Davidson and that a limited supply of machines were still available at Buell dealers.
