Not a stitch of “new info” in that article, basically boiler plate press release of a rebranded, slightly repainted 2008 1125r and barely changed 1190r and 1190 sx.... love how the writer talked about GAS IN THE FRAME like it’s was brand new technology.... second, 8500rpm IS NOT A SCREAMER... third, I guarantee the “dirt bike” will never be in showrooms and available to the real public!

No one has asked the most important question yet:

Are they going to bring back the Blast? I loved mine.

This is not an HD project, so it would be a clean slate if you wanted to bring back a smaller entry bike. Personally I wouldn't think a single would be the way to go. It might be easier to source a smaller displacement twin, but even easier still to source an electric drive platform. That way, you don't have to bother with the expense of EPA and CARB certs for an engine. Most entry riders don't ride all day anyway.

Erik said they had a mid-displacement twin nearly ready to go (maybe in the testing phase) when Hero jerked the rug out from under EBR. LAP/Buell should have all the plans for that but it would still be a huge effort for them to put that into production. Steve Anderson and others have dropped tidbits over the past few years about that one.

I think those twins you reference had sneak peek in the 2015 documentary film "The Razor's Edge". There is a camera shot of some bikes in assembly at 36:24 in the film. Could those be the twin powered 250s?

I think those bikes were prototypes for the modern 250 they designed for Hero. Despite all EBR did, which was basically everything but put the bike into production, Hero didn’t manage to finish it.
