A claimed 185 rear wheel horsepower for Buell's new V-twin racer
THIS IS THE 2010 Buell 1190RR - the first new motorcycle from Erik Buell Racing. Based on the 1125R and 1125RR, the 1190RR is constructed from a new 1125R with a complete kit of Superbike level components. Engines are completely disassembled and blueprinted, with top-shelf internal parts added to deliver reliable performance at the extreme rev ranges required for a twin-cylinder bike to compete at these power levels, say Buell.The chassis is completely updated with the finest components, as well as all the details for adjustability and comfort requested by the top test riders who have been involved over its development.
Erik Buell Racing (EBR) was formed at the back end of 2009, after Harley-Davidson pulled the plug on Buell's. roadbike business. EBR now make competiton-only machines to order.Engine
