2014 EBR Motorcycles 1190RX Preview
Erik Buell throws another punch at the sportbike market with the impressive new 1190RX revealed today at the inaugural AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida. Although based on the existing low-production 1190RS, EBR reps claim there are 426 new parts on the RX.

Also some impressive numbers to note: 185 horsepower; 102 ft-lb of torque; and a 186-plus-mph top speed. And the most important number: $18,995 for an MSRP.
And one final note: EBR is taking its 1190 to the World Superbike championship in 2014! Riders have yet to be announced.
