When the Erik Buell Racing 1190 RS hit the market in 2011, its purpose was for one reason, and one reason only – homologation for AMA Superbike.

Only 100 EBR 1190 RS production models were sold, creating a very exclusive motorcycle. And with exclusivity arrived a high price; the 1190RS sold for $39,999 with fiberglass bodywork, and $43,999 with carbon-fiber bodywork.

Rumors began of when EBR would produce an affordable sportbike, and that arrived Oct. 16 at the debut of the American International Motorcycle Expo held in Orlando, Fla. EBR used the high-exposure event to unveil its latest creation – the 1190 RX. One look at the specs for this American sportbike, and it’s easy to see EBR analyzed everything, from intense performance to the latest in technology.

The 1190cc V-Twin produces 185 horsepower and 102 ft. lbs. of torque, and is wrapped in a package that weights 419 lbs. wet. Although loaded with power, the 1190 RX is claimed to get 52 mpg.

Other highlights include 21 settings of traction control, Showa suspension, and EBR’s unique brake system, a 386mm single-perimeter rotor squeezed by an 8-piston inside-out caliper, all offered for under $19,000. It may not be as exclusive as the 1190 RS, but it surely will put up much competition for the BMW S1000RR, the Ducati 1199 Panigale, and all sportbikes from the Big Four.

And of course, the 1190 RX carries all the styling typical of EBR, which is highlighting in the photo gallery above featuring 23 images. For a First Look at the 1190 RX, including full specs, click here.
