Less than 1,000 miles from new,
2015 EBR 1190SX
Frame no. 546BBAG25FE000073
Edited from Cycle World article, 2014:
When the Buell Motorcycle Company was killed by parent company Harley-Davidson late in 2009, it was perhaps a blessing in disguise for Erik Buell the man. In short order, he created EBR and his small band of just 13 employees in East Troy, Wisconsin, promptly got to work. Its first creation was the 1190RS, a very limited (100 units) and pricey ($39,999) sportbike that was essentially a homologation special so they could go racing. But that was just the tip of the iceberg.Building products for mainstream and international markets was always the plan. With an infusion of outside cash, the company was able to increase staff to more than 140 in just four years. EBR was ready to take that next step.The brand-new 1190RX may resemble its exotic carbon-fiber-dressed stablemate in appearance (and share a lot of common design concepts), but the RX uses 426 new parts and has clearly progressed since the RS was released two years before.
At the heart of the RX is the 72-degree, 1190cc V-twin that started life in the RS but has since been refined and massaged. Crankshaft horsepower has increased from 175 to 185 (at 10,000 rpm), and there has been jump in torque of 5 pound-feet, to 102 at around 8000 rpm. Bore and stroke are identical to the that of the RS (106.0 x 67.5mm).
Like the engine, the chassis uses many familiar Erik Buell traits. As with the RS and Buell motorcycles before it, the stout aluminum frame serves a secondary role as the fuel tank. The engine is used as a stressed member while the swingarm pivots in the back of its case. Showa suspension is used at both ends: a Big Piston Fork and a non-linkage-type remote-reservoir shock, both fully adjustable. One of EBR’s (and Buell’s) long-standing signature features is the single 386mm perimeter brake disc with an inside-out eight-piston Nissin caliper. Out back is a Hayes two-piston caliper with a 220mm disc. Hubless lightweight cast-aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight, while a magnesium subframe helps centralize mass and keeps overall weight to a claimed 419 pounds, sans fuel.
Enter the SX. Often the racebike is detuned, stripped and sent out as the street fighter version. The SX suffered no detuning, no re-mapping, no wing-clipping at all. The fairing was thrown away and high handlebars to aid in the wheelie mayhem this bike is designed for.
The EBR offered here in the stealthy and stylish black livery has covered less than 1000 miles from new. As part of a discerning collection, the bike was more showpiece than transportation. In near-new and perfect condition, the bike was stored properly and re-commissioned to ready it for sale, with oil change and general check over. Now all it needs is a new owner to ride the wheels off it.
The bike is accompanied by a clean, clear California title in non-op status.
