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.

From the heartland and the heart of America, these are extraordinary motorcycles that discerning riders everywhere will be passionate to own.”
