The first production motorcycle from Erik Buell Racing has been officially announced with photos and full specifications. With 175 hp driving just 389 pounds (wet, no fuel) through the incomparable Buell chassis, EBR says “The 1190RS will shock even the most experienced sport bike rider with its performance, styling and handling”. This is a limited edition model (just 100 units), with an base MSRP of $39,999 (the carbon package adds $4,000). The good news is that this is just a start. Several other production models are planned . . . presumably, at more affordable prices. You can visit EBR’s website for details on ordering the bike. Here are the specifications for the 1190RS, followed by a video of an engine build and dyno test.
