History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Erik Buell Racing page on 17 March 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Erik Buell Racing (EBR) was an American motorcycle sport company which produced street and racing motorcycles, based in East Troy, Wisconsin, USA. The business ceased trading in April 2015. After two previous attempts, the business remnants were sold in January 2016 to an American organization specializing in buying and liquidation of failed businesses.

Erik Buell founded Erik Buell Racing in November 2009 following the shutdown of his previous company, Buell Motorcycle Company, by parent company/majority stakeholder Harley-Davidson. Erik Buell Racing's first efforts were directed toward production of complete, race-only motorcycles and parts based on the Buell 1125R production model, under license from Harley-Davidson, to support privateer racers.

On July 1, 2013, Hero MotoCorp, a motorcycle manufacturer based in India, acquired 49.2% stake in the company for $25 million. The two companies announced that EBR will distribute Hero motorcycles and scooters in North America starting in the summer of 2014.
