Nerd’s Eye View: Erik Buell Racing 1190RX



Another heat sink is located underneath the headlight. Of course, the fins are in the direction of airflow.
The EBR 1190RX is quite slim likely thanks to its V-twin engine configuration. The rear view mirror stalks are also thin for lower aero drag.
Another sign of minimized mass is the minimal passenger seat area. Typically, there’s a storage space under the passenger seat, but it’s virtually non-existent on the 1190RX as the tail section is very thin.
Made in the USA!

The EBR 1190RX is really the first American made sport bike I can think of that can compete with Japanese and European bikes. It has the power. It is low mass. And it has some unique American flavor. We’ll see if it catches on with the sport bike crowd.
