Buell 1190RR unveiled

The EBR 1190RR is an evolution of the 1125RR that you see here. Pity there will never will be a street version of Erik Buell's 185bhp racebike...

Erik Buell Racing (EBR) have released specs of their new racebike, the 1190RR, which packs all of 185 horsepower at the rear wheel! With this new machine, EBR will continue to race in the AMA American Superbike series which has a 1,200cc capacity limit for twin-cylinder engines.

‘The 1190RR models are constructed at our shop from new 1125Rs with a complete kit of superbike level components. Engines are completely disassembled and blueprinted, with top-shelf internal parts added to deliver reliable performance at the extreme rev ranges required for a twin-cylinder bike to compete at these power levels,’ says a press release from EBR.

Riders like Alex Barros and Jeremy McWilliams have been involved in the development of the 1190RR, so it must be good. Should be interesting to see how it performs in AMA Superbikes this year!
