Many of us have been dreaming about this bike—a world-class, American-made superbike—for our entire riding lives. The first ground-up creation from newly formed Erik Buell Racing, the 1190RS is the ultimate realization of the namesake designer’s American sportbike vision, incorporating the latest versions of his innovative and exclusive designs like the ZTL rim-mounted brake and fuel-bearing frame. Like any proper dreambike the 1190RS is extravagantly outfitted with Öhlins suspension, carbon-fiber bodywork and cast-magnesium wheels. Power comes from a true factory Superbike engine—an 1190cc, liquid-cooled Rotax V-twin hand-built in EBR’s Wisconsin race shop. At 384 lbs. the 1190RS is lighter than every AMA Superbike, and accelerates as fast. Unlike old Buells that were mass-produced to appease a broad spectrum of street riders and stockholders alike, the 1190RS is utterly uncompromised and designed with one goal in mind: winning races. That it’s available for purchase right now, for just a touch over $40,000, is a dream come true indeed.
