Well, the photos hit the Internet today...the EBR 1190RS Street bike from Erik Buell Racing is here! Erik Buell Racing teased me all morning via Twitter /@erikbuellracing by posting small pics here and there of partial views of the EBR 1190RS. It was a Twitter post from Hell for Leather Magazine that came to my rescue and addressed my curiosity, so thanks Hell for Leather Magazine!

At first glance, it is a great looking machine...the only question that I have is why the move away from the under slung exhaust? I wish my 1125R had the same appearance, one thing I do not like about my bike is the two side mounted radiators...I prefer a look more like what we see here with the EBR 1190RS. I find the lines on the 1190RS appealing, almost European like. I look forward to finding out more about EBR and the release of the 1190RS.
Further information is available at Asphalt & Rubber.com and Cycle World. Make sure you check out Motorcycle USA as they have a good selection of pictures of the EBR 1190RS from the 2011 Indy Dealer Expo.
Until next time...ride safe!
Although I have only seen it in pictures, I love the look. I wish Buell nothing but the best and think this looks like a great way to start!ReplyDelete
This would look so nice parked next to my S1000RR. Finally, Eric Buell designed a machine I love the looks of. I wonder if they make it in red. :) Dare I say it, but it looks to be time to buy American. I need to find somebody to let me test ride this puppy!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comments, I am just thrilled to see EBR move back into the consumer market. It is also nice to see Erik have the same creative freedom that he had when he started!ReplyDelete
