The multi-talented Erik Buell is many things - Engineer, Entrepreneur, Innovator and Ex-Racer, to name a few -he is perhaps one thing above all - A Fighter." (2 Wheels, 08/14, Roland Brown)
The new, street-legal high performance EBR 1190 RX is a direct descendant of EBR’s race-bred limited edition 1190RS Super Bike, the 1190RX features many new rider-focused features and has substantially raised the bar over competitive Sportbike offerings. Most notably, the new motorcycle boasts massive torque range from its ET-V2 1190 cc V-Twin in-house design and hand built engine.
Few, if any, production motorcycles have ever produced this level of peak torque. The 1190RX’s wide torque band assures riders that ample power is available in every gear, and 21 traction control settings keep the power within the rider’s control in all road conditions.
Aside from boasting the broadest torque band, the new engine delivers a amazing fuel economy and some of lowest exhaust emissions produced by any Superbike in it’s class.
Breakthrough engine design and EBR’s racing-inspired handling features are coupled with all-new styling and scientifically-derived aerodynamics that rival the performance and drivability of any superbike produced by any manufacturer in the world.
The multi-function digital instrument gauge cluster allows the rider to adjust performance parameters such as traction control, as well as to access numerous functions including track performance data, service intervals and system diagnostics interaction capabilities.
