        I'd doubt that, since Lamborghini are apart of the VW group who have their hands full with the takeover of porsche.

        Good luck to Buell though.

          surely the Chrysler part will want to keep the american iron pulling stumps for a few more years.

            ^ What Chrysler part? They're owned by Fiat now

            The fly in the ointment for this potential plan is that HD still owns Buell and announced no intention of selling it, just closing it down. Which probably means that they may intend to revive in one day down the track if their finances improve, or at least want first option to do that, rather than sell it to someone else...

                    Maybe Victory will take over Buell.

                      Maybe Honsuzyasaki will take over Buell?

                      Or rather more likely NOBODY will take over Buell. It is highly unlikely that Harley-Davidson will let Buell go, they will (and have) just shut it down. Sorry to dash your hopes guys but unless Harley reverse the decision, Buell is dead.

                      This is not a simple matter of needing a financial backer, rather it's a case of the owner of the company (and all that goes with it) deciding to shut it's doors. Harley will not sell Buell, or they would have announced it at the same time they announced they were selling MV Agusta.

                              I haven't seen it myself but I read on sites Buell is fire saleing their stock. $4999.00 US for a new Rotax-Buell.

                              Strangely, the Sportster engined ones are now more expensive.
