AMSOIL Giving Away a 2014 Erik Buell Racing 1190RX
Synthetic lubricant company AMSOIL has been a sponsor of Erik Buell Racing for a few years now, backing the fellow Wisconsin-based company’s racing efforts since 2011. Now that EBR has started mass production of the 1190RX streetbike, AMSOIL is continuing the partnership by giving one away.
A 2014 EBR 1190RX is the grand prize of the AMSOIL Building Legends Sweepstakes, which runs now through Nov. 10. People can enter to win online at http://amsoilracing.com/buildinglegends or at the AMSOIL booth at various events through the year such as Daytona Bike Week, the Sturgis Rally and the AMA Supercross championship.
The 1190RX, with a retail value of $18,995, is the first streetbike with an engine designed by Erik Buell. It claims an output of 185 hp and 102 ft-lb., impressive numbers combined with the claimed weight of 419 pounds.
