185 bhp, 137.8 nm torque in a 190 kg package- now that’s a recipe for pure adrenalin rush! Gentlemen, say hello to the 2014 Buell EBR 1190RX.

Unveiled at the AIMExpo in Orlando day before- the new American Superbike does have a list of features to boast about. With the 1190cc “ET-V2″ cranking out the aforesaid 185 bhp of power @ 10,600 rpm and max torque of 137.8 nm @ 8200 rpm, the 1190RX makes 109 nm right from 4000 rpm onwards. NO wonder the Head of Engineering at EBR said “This thing’s got gobs of torque.” A six speed transmission comes with a vacuum operated slipper clutch. With the redline set at 11,500 rpm- rather high for a V-twin, but forged pistons and connecting rods ensure reduced friction while the motorcycle is screaming at top of its lungs.

A full colour Thin Film Transistor display denotes all the necessary data and riding aid information to the rider. The 2014 Buell EBR 1190RX also gets a full high-tech Cree LED headlight with maximum brightness rated at 2000 lumens.
