This is the launch event for the new EBR 1190RX at Gasolina Melbourne, 17th of April 2014.
The new EBR 1190RX is the latest incarnation of Erik Buell’s superbike dream, brimming with innovative technology, awe inspiring performance and a promise to make each ride on it as addictive as the last.
Erik Buell put in over 30 years of development, racing experience and know how to build this all American road going superbike, which has now started to race on the Superbike tracks across the globe in WBSK.
At its heart is the powerful 185Hp ET-V2 1190cc V-Twin generating 137.8Nm peak torque between the optimal 5,500rpm - 8,500rpm rev range. Ingenious technology such as the Controlled Swirl Induction and Quarter Wave Tuners has helped to extract class leading performance from the V-Twin, as well as smashing stringent EPA emission standards and noise level restrictions.
Built on a true monocoque frame with the clever integral fuel reservoir has not only decreased the centre of gravity but also has allowed for greater room for the engines air intake box. The 1190RX agility is further improved with fully adjustable Showa big piston forks and Showa fully adjustable rear suspension, hubless wheels, monster 386mm eight-piston caliper front disc and shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres. Keeping it all inline comes from EBR’s own selectable 21 settings traction control ECU, displayed through a colour LED dash.
The slick look of the 1190RX achieved through aerodynamic testing, and the aggressive LED headlight leading the way. Choices of colour is also intelligently delivered through impregnated plastics technology, making the slippery fairings both light and practical.
The 1190RX transcends its peers to hone better performance and agility through a core belief there is always a better way to do things. The EBR way.
Yesterday afternoon, we had the first EBR 1190RS arrive in Australia. Fortunately we had a camera on hand to catch the action. This video only gives you a sneak peak of the bike, so keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more details on this amazing race bike.
