Eric Buell, the creator of Buell Motorcycles, which was owned and subsequently shut down by Harley Davidson, has started his own company and launched this incredible bike, the 2012 1190RS.
After Harley Davidson closed down Buell, Eric Buell was not allowed to produce a road bike for a year and in that time he worked on concepts for this new bike and his new brand, Eric Buell Racing (EBR).
The 2012 Eric Buell Racing 1190RS is set for production and sees a number of incredible specs with only 100 of these awesome bikes being produced as a limited editions – obviously designed for motorcycle enthusiasts with the means to buy one.
The bike features an 1191cc 72 degree V twin engine, developed by Eric Buell, which has 175hp at 9 750rpm with a maximum torque of 97Nm at 9 400rpm. The front fork is an Öhlins 43mm and it has a TTX shock in the back. The brakes are perimeter mounted dics with eight piston callipers, with an addition of an air duct to cool the brake pads. Exceedingly, the bike only weights 176kg’s.
The 1190RS comes in four colours: Inferno Abraxas, Boreas Frost, Armor Burnt and Pitch Black, and you can order the Carbon kit with full fairing and superstructure in carbon fiber, which would bump up the price by an additional $4, 000.
The price tag on this beautiful bike is set at $39, 999.
