2013 EBR 1190RS Review

2013 EBR 1190RS

Where precision meets passion

The 1190RS EBR returns in 2013 with an available new red, white and black paint scheme celebrating the success of the Hero/AMSOIL sponsored EBR race bikes in AMA Pro Racing Superbike. The 1190RS shocked and excited the racing paddock with multiple podiums and a third place finish in the manufacturer’s championship for EBR. Despite being its first year and having a small new team, the 1190RS made a lot of new believers in American motorcycle design capabilities. Fitted with the absolute finest of components, and closer to the race version than any other street superbike available, the EBR 1190RS is a rare and special motorcycle for the rider who wants to know he has the very finest blend of high technology and hand craftsmanship. Built without gimmicks, but instead with components from top technology sources like AIM, Carillo, CP, Del West, Ohlins, Suter, and many more, EBR delivers the 1190RS with exactly what is needed to win on the street or track.

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 369lbs. of meticulously designed sport motorcycle propelled by a powerful 175hp motor. Must be fate.

Land of the free, home of the brave. Incubator of pioneering technology.

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.
