EBR to unveil new American sport bike at AIMExpo in Orlando
EAST TROY, Wis. – Erik Buell Racing (EBR) announced today that a new sportbike will be unveiled October 16 at the American International Motorcycle Exposition (AIMExpo) in Orlando, Fla.
The new, street-legal high performance motorcycle carries EBR’s model designation 1190RX and is a direct descendant of EBR’s race-bred limited edition 1190RS Super Bike. While the 1190RX shares its sibling’s 1190cc engine and many of EBR’s exclusive performance and handling-enhancing features, it is a new design created to tame the wildest roads and rouse the most demanding riders.
“This is the culmination of decades of dedication, innovation and teamwork,” said EBR founder Erik Buell. “We have been working to create a pure rider’s machine and a true world brand. From the heartland and the heart of America, these are extraordinary motorcycles that discerning riders everywhere will be passionate to own.”
The unveiling of the EBR 1190RX will take place in EBR’s booth number 1157 at the AIMExpo at 12:00 noon on October 16. Media representatives and motorcycle dealers are encouraged to attend, as a number of developments from the EBR team will be announced at that time."

IRVINE, Calif. (February 17, 2013) – The American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) announced today that
Erik Buell Racing (EBR) will be hosting its dealers at the groundbreaking event in October. EBR joins an expanding

is built off a strong racing heritage and the unique vision of founder Erik Buell.

1190RS model. The 1190RS has impressed the motorcycling world with multiple podium finishes in the 2012 AMA
"AIMExpo is adding excitement to the revitalized motorcycle industry, and is occurring at a great location and time,
when dealers and riders are planning their purchases to be ready for the next riding season,” said Erik Buell. "We
are delighted to join in this celebration of motorcycling."
By using the event to both showcase new product and gather its dealer body, EBR is taking full advantage of
AIMExpo’s concept of bringing together the entire powersports industry including dealers, consumers and the press
in one single venue for the first time in the United States.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Erik Buell Racing to AIMExpo in October,” said Larry Little, Vice President & General

Some more info:
America’s new superbike is going to be lighter, torquier and more fuel efficient than any of its competition. Not only that, but the 2014 EBR 1190RX is going to race in World Superbike next year. Grab a cup of coffee, sit down and prepared to be wowed by the full details.
“This thing’s got gobs of torque,” remarked EBR’s head of engineering shortly after its wraps were pulled off today at the AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida. 102 lb.-ft. of torque is more than any other superbike makes but, more impressive is the bike’s full torque curve. From 4,000 rpm up, it never dips below 80 lb.-ft. To put that in perspective, a Japanese liter bike like the Honda CBR1000RR peaks at 82 lb.-ft. and 8,500 rpm.
Max power from the 1190cc “ET-V2″ is 185 bhp at 10,600rpm. Redline is 11,500 rpm. It can reliably pull such high revs (for a V-twin) thanks to forged pistons and connecting rods and extremely low internal friction, a factor which also boosts EPA-certified highway fuel economy to 52 mpg. That’s better than a Toyota Prius. Combined city/highway mpg is 40.
It’s cheaper than a Prius, too. The 1190RX will retail for $18,995 when it hits dealers later this year. EBR says it hopes to start with 50 or so dealers, possibly going as high as 100 by the end of next year.
The 419 lbs curb weight is also extremely impressive. That’s measured ready-to-ride, with with its 4.5-gal tank empty. In comparison, the “frameless” Ducati 1199 Panigale is said to be 425 lbs, complete with fuel. The EBR achieves that low weight with the aid of a frame/fuel cell designed by the same engineer who did those parts for the ill-fated Team Kenny Roberts MotoGP bike. It must be a coincidence then, that the frame/fuel cell on both bikes weighs the same — 23 lbs. The die-cast magnesium rear subframe weighs on 2 lbs. That’s right, two.
Like the Ducati, the EBR is fitted with a full color, Thin Film Transistor display and advanced electronic rider aids. While it does without wheelie control or ABS, the 1190RX does have a 21-mode traction control system. It can be switched off.
Announcing the 1190RX’s 2.8-sec 0-60 mph time, an EBR representative went on to state that the agreed top speed for motorcycles in Europe is 186 mph. He stated that with a big smile on his face.
Fully adjustable suspension is by Showa. Forks are that firm’s popular “Big Piston” design. The 1190RX’s continues to use Erik Buell’s innovative “Zero Torsional Load” brake design, which fits a single, large disc to the perimeter of the front rim. Because the wheels spokes are freed from the need to bear torsional brake loads, they can be made lighter. The system lowers both parts count and unsprung weight.
Headlights are another area where EBR is innovating. It’s not the first to go full-LED, but it is the first to max-out the Federal government’s maximum brightness regulation. It reaches the 2,000 lumen limit by using high-tech Cree LEDs, the same you’ll find in high-end flashlights from company’s like Fenix or Four Sevens.
Perhaps the best indication of how seriously EBR is coming at the sport bike market are its 2014 race plans. It will campaign a factory team in World Superbike next year, going up against bikes like the Aprilia RSV4 and Ducati 1199 on the world stage.
