This is not a re-skinned 1125R. “Nearly every component, from the front axle to the rear wheel bearings, is new or heavily modified,” Erik Buell says. “A stupid amount of work went into this bike.” Fuel is still carried in the frame, but that frame casting is all-new and narrower, with cutouts to clear clip-on handlebars and an airbox that’s twice as big as before. Wheels, suspension, brakes, bodywork, structural components and controls are likewise new and unique. Rotax-built 1125cc motors are converted to 1190cc at EBR’s East Troy, Wisconsin, production facility with oversized, 106mm forged pistons, titanium valves, race cams, forged and machined connecting rods and much more. Expect power output similar to Ducati’s 1198R and an even lighter weight—Buell says he’ll need to add ballast to meet the AMA’s 380-lb. minimum for Superbikes.
