Now that Buell seems out of the mix; my mind has been wandering.
With the 1125r exposing me to Rotax I have liked what I have seen.
So if Buell cannot do it the next best thing may be a Can-Am dirtbike.

I am sure BRP will not comment on future product developments (if there are any) But it would be good to see. Bring on the dirty demo dealer days.

If they could build one that ran as good as the old ones (comparatively speaking) I would buy it in a heartbeat!!! Only had the chance to ride one of them, but what a machine!!!
Might be a little biased toward rotax since I have ridden Ski-Doo for the last 14 years

I rode a 1980-81 from a Harley Davidson shop that sold them in Florida..when i raced mx...he was gonna sell me a cagiva 125mx..nice bike and i borrowed the Can-AM 400/370 MX team bike in 1986 and that bike still ripped...and wheelied crazy..rotax! i flipped it twice because of the abrupt powerband..bent the rear rails and fender! This was also modified for racing by an ex pro in florida i knew..They were ballsy bikes that won MX championships(Jimmy Ellis)in the 70's...So with Rotax..building engines for Buell..KTM, BMW, aircraft, Can-AM, Sea-DOO,etc...they could make an engine that ripped for Buell..lets not count that out yet!!!since I work with HD/Buell as a specialist..in Riverside, CA.
