“When we said ‘Buell is Back,’ we meant it,” Melvin, CEO of Buell Motorcycle Co., said in a statement.
“We have former executives from Buell, General Motors, Lotus Engineering, Toyota and Bombardier Recreational Products ensuring we are manufacturing and developing the highest quality products.
“Now we are putting the finishing touches on our factory. We will be kicking off production of the Best American Superbike on Nov. 1.”
Earlier this year, Buell Motorcycle announced that it plans to release 10 performance models by the year 2024. Apart from that, it may also be producing an innovative online ordering and delivery system for its bikes called Buellvana.
