2013 EBR 1190RS Carbon Edition Review
2013 EBR 1190RS Carbon Edition
Exclusive and exquisite, the EBR 1190RS Carbon Edition returns in 2013.
Not just incredibly exotic in rarity, but also in performance, the 1190RS shocked and excited the racing paddock with multiple podiums and a third place finish in the 2012 AMA Superbike manufacturer’s championship. The Carbon Edition actually goes beyond what are allowed in AMA Superbike, slimming down to a weight that is equal in street trim to what the AMA race bikes are allowed; to the configuration that has won championships in Europe. Closer to the race version than any other street superbike available, the EBR 1190RS Carbon Edition is an even more rare version of the already limited production 1190RS. Only on an EBR 1190RS will the deserving rider experience the very finest blend of high technology and hand craftsmanship. EBR builds these bikes fitted with structural and styled carbon and magnesium components, as well as internal parts from the finest race technology manufacturers like AIM, Carillo, CP, Del West, Ohlins, Suter, and more. Yes, maybe it is more than you need,, but it’s also everything needed to win on the street or track – gimmick (if not guilt) free.
We asked ourselves what kind of bike would make a great first impression. Our Answer, the 2013 EBR 1190RS.
Meet the 2013 EBR 1190RS. Our flagship. Our price and joy. Made with allt he engineering and performance traits we admire in a sport motorcycle. It’s the culmination of years of learning, victories, setbacks along with an unrelenting passion to build a motorcycle on our own terms. We’re happy to share it with the world but honestly… we’re just happy we get to ride it.
Quite frankly, this turned out better than we expected.
We knew from the beginning we could build this bike. But we expected any number of roadblocks to knock us off track. After all, starting a company in this economic climate with no other goal than to produce high performance motorcycles takes either a fair amount of ignorance or a brass set. But things kept falling into place. And today, the reward is 362lbs. of meticulously designed sport motorcycle propelled by a powerful 175hp motor. Must be fate.

Producting an American motorcycle today means understanding what kind of engineering and componentry will make the bike its absolute best – no matter where it comes from. So, with our global partnerships in full effect, we’re designing and building motorcycles like the 2013 Erik Bull Racing 1190RS that will make the world sit up and pay attention to red, white and blue output.
