Known for their strange and eccentric motorcycles, Buell Motorcycle Company was originally founded all the way back in 1983, by the man Erik Buell himself. Starting his career as a Harley-Davidson engineer, Buell soon realized the potential many of his ideas had, and split from the American-based motorcycle company to found his own – Buell Motorcycles. Unfortunately, due to financial struggles Buell Motorcycle Company had to close their doors by 2009. Not one to be deterred, Erik Buell created EBR (Erik Buell Racing) shortly after and got back to the drawing board. By 2014, Erik had put his name back on the map, with the help of his flagship model – the EBR 1190RX.
The 1190RX was powered by a potent V-twin engine, delivering 185 horsepower and an astonishing 101 lb-ft of torque to the road. The motorcycle featured all of Erik’s previous eccentricities – and many new ones at that – with the signature fuel carried in the frame to help center the point of gravity, as well as his iconic perimeter brake to help cut down on overall rotating mass. Beyond the standardized features seen in many of Buell’s motorcycles, the 1190RX featured an in-house ECU, which refined the fueling and throttle response greatly on the torquey V-twin, and a sophisticated TCU system that helped keep all 185 ponies to the tarmac.
The 1190RX – and EBR as a company – was a testament to Erik Buell’s tenacity in the face of adversity, proving once again that innovation and creativity can come together to make something truly unique and capable. The EBR was so capable, in fact, that Cycle World compared it directly with the 1199 Panigale and in the process called it “the American-made superbike we’ve been waiting for.”
