2014 EBR 1190RX on Totalmotorcycle.com

EBR Motorcycles are unlike anything else on the road or track. What makes them so different is what makes them so distinctly better.

Introducing the 2014

More than three decades of racing, engineering, and manufacturing experience goes into every motorcycle we make. You won’t be disappointed upon setting eyes on our newest creation: The 2014 EBR 1190RX. It has been built from start-to-finish with pride, joy and a relentless passion to bring you another world-class sport bike from the heart of America.



2014 EBR 1190RX Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

The new, street-legal high performance motorcycle carries EBR’s model designation 1190RX and is a direct descendant of EBR’s race-bred limited edition 1190RS Super Bike. While the 1190RX shares its sibling’s 1190cc engine and many of EBR’s exclusive performance and handling-enhancing features, it is a new design created to tame the wildest roads and rouse the most demanding riders.


“This is the culmination of decades of dedication, innovation and teamwork,” said EBR founder Erik Buell. “We have been working to create a pure rider’s machine and a true world brand.

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

Pretty cool looking, but I'm noticing no full on front pictures. I wonder if it suffers from that same front end as the other big buells did. Hmmm.

Still, a solid cool in my books.

Still waiting on more photos from EBR, but this is the best one I could grab for you of the front.

I don't know if it's loyalty to someone with the same name or because I'm using a Buell in the novel I'm writing or what, but this gets an Awesome. I'd never get more than 60% outta this bike myself, but it'd leave me with a 110% permagrin.

Only one question -- why not have matching rims fore and aft? Is that common?

I didn't notice that until you pointed it out, that is quite odd. I am sure I've seen another bike with different rims on the front and rear but it just doesn't come to mind right now. It's rare to even see a bike with the same rims f/r but different colors (BMW F800R).

For a guess, it could be a weight f/r ratio EBR wanted to meet. I doubt it's because they couldn't get the same f/r tire. Since they are the manufacturer they could have easily made the same spoke design for both wheels.

Interesting, I'll ask them when I get a chance.

I agree. I suspect the rear needs to be really beefy to handle the power transfer, but the front can be light since braking forces don't need to travel through the spokes since the brake disk is directly attached to the wheel rim. It would still be better if the designs were sorta similar front and rear.

It’d be great to get Eric’s explanation though.

UPDATE: Nothing yet from the EBR media rep, I imagine he must be incredibly busy right now so I wrote directly to Erik Buell himself. He is a great guy and I'm sure will have the answer shortly.

Ok everyone, this is the official word I got straight from Erik Buell himself. (Thanks Erik for answering this for our readers)
Mike,

Thank you for the posting to bike of the week...



The front and rear spoke designs are different because the job they do is different. With an inside out front rotor there are no torsional loads going through the spokes so the design is optimized for this. The rear wheel is an optimized design for the fact that it is loaded torsionally.

...

Very best,

Erik

So there you have it.

Mike

101% glad to, I love going that extra mile. :D

Erik and EBR are incredibly busy right now preparing for the upcoming AIMExpo. I've known Eric for a while and he is a great fellow who also goes that extra mile as well. Glad to have a guy like him around. :cowboy:

I voted: Awesome

Sportbikes (in this case, maybe it should be called a superbike) are all about the numbers. Horsepower, torque, weight, lean angle... and the new 2014 EBR 1190RX has the right impressive numbers: 185 hp @ 10,600 rpm, Peak Torque 101.6 ft-lbs. @ 8200 rpm, Weight (Wet, no fuel) 419lbs., Lean Angle 55°... which alone makes it amazing in my books. But what makes it amazing plus is it's done with EBR's new engine (72° V-Twin) and in fact that 185hp is made from a V-Twin! Usually you see those numbers from an inline four, but rarely from a V-Twin.

I can't wait to see what the other 2 EBR bikes will be coming up. Hopefully we will see something along the lines of an entry level smaller engine bike and I wonder if a dual sport/adventure is coming our way as well... love to see a big naked too. The RX without fairing made UJM would be quite appealing.

NOTES: Sportbikes (in this case, maybe it should be called a superbike) are all about the numbers. Horsepower, torque, weight, lean angle... and the new 2014 EBR 1190RX has the right impressive numbers. As of writing it has finished an incredibly close #3 on our Cool Wall with just 0.4% separating 1st to 3rd! Even Erik Buell even commented, how amazing is that? Looking forward to the future EBR models!

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!

Totally didn't mean to spark so much discussion about the wheel rims, LoL! I didn't even notice that the brake rotor on the front tire was 'inside out', that's an impressive bit of engineering. Talk about fine-tuning, I've always considered rims to be like rolling pins -- once you've satisfied the function, there's more than enough material for form. That is to say, by the time you've engineered a rolling pin capable of flattening dough, you could also hammer a nail with it. (-:

Either way, it's a great looking bike and I'm glad to see it did so well. And I'll second the thanx to Mike and Mr. Buell for going out of their ways for us. We all appreciate such a commitment to service.
