Erik Buell Racing continues to pump the interwebs with material on its EBR 1190RS street bike, the 1190cc v-twin American street bike. In what looks to be Part 1 of a multiple-part video series, EBR throws a bunch of cut-scenes together, giving us only a quick glimpse of the 1190RS. Although details are scarce about the winged-stead, we do know that the Erik Buell Racing 1190RS will be based of EBR’s 1190RR race bike, which was based in-turn off the now defunct Buell Barracuda 2.

Unfortunately Harley-Davidson closed down Buell before the Barracuda 2 could make it into production, thus gaining the ire of Buelltisti (we think that’s a word) around the world. Reports that the EBR 1190RS can be fueled by the sheer will of Erik Buell and tears of a unicorn might be exagereated, but we’re not certain. Enough fluff text, check the video after the jump.

    o0o0o0, cant wait to see production version. hopefully everything works out and we can actually get our grimy paws on this bike within a year or two.

  2. Jp says:

    I was going to post earlier but it took me a bit of time to recover from the seizure I got from that video. Looks like a pretty promising bike and hopefully it turns into a nice big FU Harley once the dust settles.

    I saw NOTHING! , IT STINKS like Triumph’s Commercials for the 800’s. Sick of this TREND.

    I too am quite tired of the teaser videos. Bike looks great either way. I don’t mind the exhaust – somewhat 500GP-ish

  6. jackie says:

    Why is the first engine sound you hear a four-banger?

  7. Keith says:

    That exhaust is no uglier than another stock pipes out there. The Kzed and ninjette come to mind for ugly exhaust systems.

  8. AndrewF says:

    That exhaust looks almost exactly like the one on Bimota DB7. I don’t remember anyone bitching about it then…

  9. It’s Buell-isti dude, not Buell-tisti ;)

  10. Tom Z says:

    I highly doubt Buell is going to defer from their underbody exhuast. That is, unless HD does not release patent privileges, which is entirely a possibility. My bet is, given the projected retail price, that this is a removable street use silencer.

  11. I like the idea of exhaust being vented through the swingarm but it appears that HD owns that patent. Too bad, it would add to the exotic-ness of the new bike. Come on Willie G., let Eric incorporate it into the new bikes, or are you gonna use it on something? Not! Buells Rock!
