Erik Buell Racing has released the third episode of its series about the new 1190RS sportbike.

The latest episode focuses on the company’s “Made in America” philosophy, with its goal of producing a high-performance superbike in the U.S.A.

As Erik Buell, racer Geoff May and designer Tony Stefanelli discuss the themes of innovation and freedom, we can’t help but wonder however whether they’re talking about American ideals, or about being out from Harley-Davidson’s umbrella.

“We want to live free, we want to think free, we want to be able do what we want as individuals,” Stefanelli says in the video. What do you think readers? Check the video after the jump and let us know.

    If they were not butt ugly and went 1/2 as fast as they loose their value everyone would have 1 or 2, but as it is I cant dream in my wildest dreams anyone else being tricked into buying one of those boat ankers

    I don’t know as much. But this one seems like a reliable alternative of sportbikes. It’s masculine, fast, and resembles an out-of-the-comic vehicle. I think this is good, so let people decide whether this sportbike is as good as it looks or not.
