still fairly vague, but I'll choose to hope.

I wish they would quit screwing around and get out of the way. We need a list of their parts suppliers.

Whoever is doing their Facebook has indicated the following:
“We are still an operational business. Licensed EPA & CARB 2018 & We actually just finished our 2019 application to EPA.”
I thought they got rid of all production equipment....

I think the production equipment mostly consisted of carts and similar equipment to make mass production efficient. All the components are provided by outside suppliers. If they were to only build limited quantities of new bikes, they may not need that stuff, at least not at first.

As good as it is, if they are still pushing the SX and RX then I doubt things will go any different.

If EBR does make a comeback and if they build a Black Lightning, I'll go nuts trying to figure out how to come up with the money to buy one. And if I do figure out how buy one, I'll go nuts trying to figure out how to mount Hepco & Becker Junior bags to it. And if I do get that hurdle jumped, I'll go nuts trying to come up with the money to ride it to Tuktoyaktuk. It probably helps that I'm nuts already.

For me, it would be a dream come true to ride a bike like that to the Arctic Ocean.

However, having raised my hopes each time there's been a comeback, I don't think it'll happen; as much as I'd like it to.

Crusty, that's a lof of "ifs"....but sadly, I'm right there with ya. I want to believe, I just am not sure I can confidently do so.

Court,
I wish I knew what you knew when you mention what's in their cards....

Erik mentioned a medium weight new bike several times, and Steve Anderson provided additional details in a couple of posts here. Sounds like it would be a competitor to the KTM 790 Duke and Yamaha FZ-09.

According to a quote attributed to Erik in Cycle World a few years ago it was nearly ready for production prior to the first shut down in 2015.

Stop teasing me. It's not nice.

My only insight to what might have been, and could still be, was when I picked up the DDB bike from the auction. The rep from LAP referenced a boxful of starters as, "for a bike we never produced". It made me wonder why you would need an entire box of EBR part numbered starters if you were just evaluating them for a future model. An outside possibility could be the short run of 250cc Hero bikes mentioned by an anonymous insider posting earlier on these forums. Another possibility could be there actually might be a fair amount of inventory for a limited run of an as yet unreleased EBR bike. That would explain why truckloads of stuff went to Michigan, ostensibly to support the roughly only 1300 bikes built.
Fingers crossed, but I doubt Erik would be a part of a re release. He seems to have shifted his focus on to the next corner.

Oh and Crusty, the 1190SCG is listed on their 2018 CARB certificate.......

Id love to see a middle weight bike to compete with the FZ09 etc
Something more upright position, some power but not insane, and similar price point.

They release it right now I'd sign up (depending on style, though Ive loved everything so far Buell/EBR has done minus the Hero transformers looking ones).

But Im not holding my breath on it.

The latest news from LAP!

Yeah I gotta admit, it's kinda like a Rickroll... It's just the latest LAP liquidation auction of some 'Famous' motorcycle business...

Seriously what does LAP (who owns the EBR brand) know about what H-D is going to do with the Buell brand (which, if anyone remembers, is owned by H-D)?

I'd guess both the questioner and the responder made the common mistake of considering Buell and EBR to be the same company.
