Erik Buell is back…again

American innovator Erik Buell, the man behind the Buell range of motorcycles, is back designing bikes, this time as part of a trio behind the electric brand Vanguard Spark.

After joining with Harley-Davidson as their ‘sportsbike arm’ in 2003, and then subsequently being closed down in 2009, Erik formed Erik Buell Racing (EBR) in late 2009. This was wound down in 2017, but he is now back with new partners Vanguard Motorcycles founder F-X Terny and Spark Racing Technology, who make Formula E race cars.


The plan is to produce two models: a battery-assisted bicycle called the SpeedBike and an electric motorcycle called the Commuter. The name might not get the blood pumping straight away but the Commuter is intended to be a low-powered and practical machine for city-dwellers rather than thrill-seekers. So far the partnership have only released a sketch but interested parties can register on the website by clicking here.
