Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2016 EBR 1190RX “1776” Edition. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
In 2016, the first motorcycle off of Erik Buell Racing (EBR)’s production line was a “1776” Limited Edition 1190RX superbike.
The base model 1190RX was an impressive motorcycle in its own right – Cycle World compared it directly with the 1199 Panigale and in the process called it “the American-made superbike we’ve been waiting for.” The highlights were 185 horsepower, 101.6 pound feet of torque, and 419 pounds of weight.
But for 2016, EBR created a limited edition with an American flag livery – they were officially called the 1776 Limited Edition but lots of riders just called them the Patriots. Jason LeCavalier of Artistimo Customs was hired to paint seven of the Patriots – he told us that “one was auctioned off for charity and the other retained by EBR so only 5 were available for sale.”
The bike that was auctioned off for charity was VIN #1, and that’s what we have here today (VIN: 546AAAG22GE000001). In addition to the bike, the owner got a personal email from none other than Erik Buell thanking him for his purchase/donation to Fisher House.
The owner had EBR install a factory race kit (exhaust, ECU, and gearing) before taking delivery.
The odometer shows 74 miles – the seller calls this “a piece of art in my collection that’s been ridden every 4th of July since I’ve had it.”
The sole significant cosmetic blemish is a pair of scratches on the right side of the swingarm, we believe they are from a rear wheel stand.
The sale includes a flash drive with manuals and two keys (not pictured). Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this EBR is offered on a clean California title with non-op registration.
