2014 EBR 1190SX Superfighter Specs and Pricing Announced

Erik Buell Racing releases more information on the 1190SX, the recently unveiled naked version of the 1190RX superbike

Sharing the 1190RX's V-twin engine (click HERE for our First Ride review and video of the 1190RX) with a claimed 185 crankshaft horsepower and 101.6 lb-ft of torque, the new 2014 EBR 1190SX delivers the highest performance available in the streetfighter category. EBR founder and Chief Technical Officer Erik Buell is no stranger to streetfighter-style sport bikes, having defined the category with the introduction of the S1 Lightning in 1995.

“The streetfighter classification, which was so revolutionary when we first came to market, is now being used by marketing people for all sorts of motorcycles, including some thinly-disguised standard bikes that have de-tuned or obsolete powertrains,” said Buell. “So perhaps the appropriate new name for a bike like the 1190SX is Superfighter."

With much componentry carried over from the EBR 1190RX superbike, the 1190SX is a genuine high-performance motorcycle with a racing heritage. True to its streetfighter designation, however, the 1190SX is designed to be a dominating street machine. Featuring an athletic upright riding position and wider handlebars for nimble handling, and minimalist bodywork for lower weight, the 1190SX is equally at home carving canyons on the open road or taking on the concrete canyons of the city. As with all EBR sportbikes, the 1190SX features many Erik Buell signature innovations to optimize handling and performance, such as fuel in the frame for lower weight and centralized mass, hubless wheels and perimeter brake rotors for lower unsprung weight, and EBR’s proprietary Controlled Swirl Induction (CSI), which improves power and fuel economy, while lowering exhaust emissions.
