that single giant rotor actually works very well. the race bike from what I hear handles like a dream. its the new EBR motors that need some help. they are running in the back of the field at the races. they make them now so they don't use rotax anymore.

1190RX « Erik Buell Racing

i can't tell, is that an intake between the (awesome) LED headlights, or something else?? looks like an intake, but there is a weird reflection in some photos

edit... oops, looks like the high beam was missing for the photo shoot. it's clearly in the second photo

Peak torque 102FT-LBS, peak HP185. That's more HP than the R1 the CBR1000RR or the RSV4 and more torque than pretty much any of it's competition, including the Panagile. The best part is that by 4K RPM it's already producing over 80Ft-Lbs. (for reference the CBR1000RR makes 82ft-lbs maximum)

I don't know what sort of numbers the 1190RS is putting out in race trim but it sounds like the 1190RX is going to have a PHENOMENAL engine for street riding and at least be competitive at the club level in racing.


And it comes in red.....!

those h.p. figures make me kinda suspitious. i would be amazed if that is the rear wheel hp, or anything close to it.

i think i'll wait for idependent verification before believing that.

also 13.5:1 is a high compression ratio, wonder if the engine has a knock sensor for ignition retarding.

talking about the race bikes. interview with the EBR team said it's down on power compared to the rest of the field. so is the daytona.
everyone thinks because the stock bike is more that makes it a bad ass engine. well when the teams start building them for competition we find out real fast what bikes have the real bad ass engines and who has more design limitations.

look at the bmw s1000rr for example. phenomenal power from a bike off the showroom floor. but it doesn't really do great in races against anything else that has been prepped for racing.

I like it. Maybe not to the tune of $19k but I do like it.

Well, for us street riders, I'm fine with that

Man, that thing is ugly. It looks like some mock-up of what a 'futuristic' bike would look like for a movie that was made in 1987. The only thing I like is the rear wheel. Engine numbers are impressive though (on paper).

Same. Love the look; I've always been a fan of the look of Buell's "gas in the frame" style.

But that's a lot of money. Maybe I could consider one in a few years when they're available used.
