Erik Buell Racing just posted this photo on its Facebook page with the caption “Spy photo of the race 1125 and the 1190RS in the van on it’s way to Indy for the big show! Thank you to everyone for your faith and support! It’s going to be an amazing year!” Strapped next to its AMA Pro Racing counterpart, we see that the Erik Buell Racing 1190RS street bike was thankfully completed in-time for the Dealer Expo, and will debut with the exhaust can we were less than enthralled about during other glimpses of the machine.
But after last night’s glimpse of what’s underneath the fairings, we think we’ll forgive EBR on this one, as the 1190RS appears to be a no-compromises race bike with headlights, mirrors, and turn signals attached to it (which is exactly how the machine evolved).
The Indy Dealer Expo was an important venue for Buell and his crew to make with the 1190RS street bike, as the company will likely be looking for dealers to carry the exclusive and expensive American-built street bike, and the hopefully more affordable models that will come after it. While the market will be small for the Erik Buell Racing 1190RS, the small operation that Erik Buell Racing is now would be unable to handle anything in volume anyways. Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for unrestrained shots of the EBR 1190RS when it debuts at the Expo.
