Erik Buell Racing has produced its first new motorcycle, the 1190RR. Based on the 1125R and RR platform, the new model moves engine displacement up closer to the AMA Superbike limit for twins and the World Superbike overall limit.
The 1125 motor is disassembled at the Buell shop, then blueprinted, and new components are installed. The chassis is updated with improved adjustability and comfort.
Dry weight is 360 lb (163 kg). The 1190RR should produce 185 rear wheel horsepower at 11,500 rpm and 93 lb-ft of torque at 9,500 rpm.
Although it’s not approved yet for AMA racing, the 1190 is legal in other racing classes around the world.
