2012 Ohlins Open House

Possibly the most-traveled Erik Buell Racing 1190RS will be at the May 12, 2012 Ohlins USA Open House, returning Stateside from its European tour just for our event.

This EBR 1190RS is a Carbon Edition, making it a rare special version of the limited production line of ERB’s flagship 1190RS. In short, it’s a very special special.

Features of this 1190cc superbike include “The Original Gold” of Ohlins fully adjustable 43 mm inverted fork and fully adjustable Twin-Tube TTX rear shock with remote reservoir.

All versions of the 1190RS are fitted exclusively with Ohlins suspension components. For more information about EBR please visit: erikbuellracing.com. And yes, right now at Ohlins USA, the rhododendrons are in bloom.
