Aesthetically, I'm not a fan. They're trying too hard.
Financially, I probably wouldn't be a fan either. They need to go back towards making a bike that appeals to a broader range. Like the xb(ish).

Financally they have to be where they are at for a price point. The big $ vehicle finances the production of the affordable ones.

Sure, a bit ugly, but that's a Buell thing. Would love to hear more about it.

The official release of the bike is Wednesday, October 16:

EAST TROY, Wis. – Erik Buell Racing (EBR) announced today that a new sportbike will be unveiled October 16 at the American International Motorcycle Exposition (AIMExpo) in Orlando, Fla.

The new, street-legal high performance motorcycle carries EBR’s model designation 1190RX and is a direct descendant of EBR’s race-bred limited edition 1190RS Super Bike. While the 1190RX shares its sibling’s 1190cc engine and many of EBR’s exclusive performance and handling-enhancing features, it is a new design created to tame the wildest roads and rouse the most demanding riders.

“This is the culmination of decades of dedication, innovation and teamwork,” said EBR founder Erik Buell. “We have been working to create a pure rider’s machine and a true world brand. From the heartland and the heart of America, these are extraordinary motorcycles that discerning riders everywhere will be passionate to own.”

The unveiling of the EBR 1190RX will take place in EBR’s booth number 1157 at the AIMExpo at 12:00 noon on October 16. Media representatives and motorcycle dealers are encouraged to attend, as a number of developments from the EBR team will be announced at that time.

i don't think the yellow is helping it - at least in this picture the styling is pretty bland. I'm looking at acquiring a sport bike, and currently leaning toward the KTM RC8R - which looks worlds better than this bike (at least in this picture). But if the performance is there, and the price is comparable I would be interested in checking it out.

Ya still taking a in every Buell thread you can. Get over it, let your 'unsubscribe' do the talking.


Regards, Revan.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

By the way.....Other people have let their wallet do the talking, they are known as Hero Motors (AKA - one of the largest 2 wheeled manufacturer in the world). Not only have they contracted Erik's engineering team in the past to do work for them, but have given Erik 25 MILLION DOLLARS for a part in his company (that's a pretty big wallet of cash).

And before you come up with one of your snarky little comments to this, here is something to think about. Hero motors did not get to be where they are today from making bad business decisions...and if they see a value in investing 25 million in EBR, that should be taken with much more credibility than the incessant trolling of some random guy on the internet.


P.S.

I can't be mean to a guy who can't spell blaming. For the record it was never a failure. Buell's sales figures were from what I understand looking good at the time of the closure. It was a blessing in disguise, hopefully.

A Buell purist will NEVER be over the end of a good thing going. I believe the XB was as close to a perfect sport bike as anyone could get. Short wheelbase, affordable, good torque, low maintenance, good fuel economy, super cheap insurance, and intuitive handling.

We will never know how far a team of engineers could polish a turd, and put it in an advanced chassis. So far, I thought Erik and his elves were kicking some major butt!

First leak of the day, thanks to the BuellXB forum. I dare you to not be impressed by this:
