After just recently setting up shop at their new facility, Erik Buell Racing has made their first sale with a pair of 1190RR Euro-spec race bikes no less. The two 1190RR’s were bought by the Pegasus Race Team who will campaign the Buells in the 2010 European Sound of Thunder Series.

At the helm for Pegasus will be the 2009 Sound of Thunder champ, Harald Kitsch, who rode a Buell 1125R for the team last year at the final round in the Pro Thunder class.

In addition to their newly acquired 1190RR’s, the German-based team will continue to campaign a Buell 1125R and XB12R in the support classes for the Sound of Thunder series.

Talking about his company’s first sale, Erik Buell stated in the company’s press release:

“We are extremely pleased that the Pegasusrace team will be the first team in the world to get the new 1190RR-B. Over the years, I’ve been very impressed with every aspect of their organization and I know they will do well. We’ve been working very hard to develop this bike and get our race shop set up and organized as we begin to showcase the finest race parts and technology we can deliver without restriction.”

Still no official specs or pictures of the EBR 1190RR, more on that as we get it.
