Debuting today at the AIMExpo in Orlando, the 2014 Erik Buell Racing 1190RX superbike is already the talk of the event. Based off the company’s uber-pricey EBR 1190RS racing machine, the EBR 1190RX is the RS’s more affordable, yet still potent, street bike sibling.

Featuring 185 peak horsepower in a 419 lbs bulk (sans fuel), Erik Buell Racing is posting some impressive numbers with the EBR 1190RX, though we think the $18,995 is the figure that will really get people excited. Putting the Erik Buell Racing 1190RX in “Ducati territory” for potential buyers, EBR is now a serious street bike company for enthusiasts to consider.

Diving into the details, the 2014 Erik Buell Racing 1190RX comes with a 21-setting traction control system (more settings is better, right?), and also features a color digital dash. With a top torque figure of 101.6 lbs•ft at 8,200 rpm, the EBR 1190RX on paper sounds like a peaky beast, though its dyno graph tells a different story.







The headlight is a full LED unit, and flanks the redesigned air intake, while the Suspension is Show Big Piston forks up front, and a full adjustable Showa shock for the rear. Unsurprisingly, Buell’s ZTL single-disc braking design is implemented on the EBR 1190RX, which should be fine as long as you keep the bike off the race track.

America, you have wanted a real American sport bike for some time now. Here is your chance.
