Meet the all new Erick Buell 1190SX which represents the company’s weapon for attacking the naked sport segment.
Featuring a sleek, aerodynamic style, the new Erick Buell 1190SX was fully revealed at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (check the video).
There is no secret that the new Erick Buell 1190SX is based on the 1190RX super sport, featuring a naked configuration and a slightly modified engine which is easier to be kept in leash.
Even if the company has taken the wraps off its new model, the technical details are still limited and we can only guess the output of the bike’s detuned engine which should be somewhere around 160-170 hp. The torque should be also less strong than the 138 Nm offered by the SX and should reach its peak lower than the 8200 rpm mark.
From what we can see in the video, the new 1190 RX will keep the same permiter brakes, aluminum trellis rear subframe and silencer as its sibling.
As far as differences are concerned, the RX comes without the front brake air intakes found at its brother and there are also new wheels, a new handlebar and a fresh headlight.

Erick Buell Racing (EBR) is back on track and after they revealed their stunning 1190 RX sport bike, the company has come back with a second model.
Unfortunately, for the moment, EBR didn’t reveal any specification for its new bike and all we have is a high resolution photo and a name.
Named the 1190 SX, the newcomer seems to be the naked version of the RX. Featuring an aggressive style, with sharp lines, edgy fenders and a modern headlight, the new 1190 SX seems to have all it needs to be a success.
Most likely, the SX will be propelled by the same engine as the RX, namely a 1190 cc, 72° V-twin, liquid cooled, four-stroke unit that puts out up to 101.6 ft-lbs. (137.8 Nm) of torque at 8200 rpm and 185 hp at 10,600 rpm.
Among the features offered by the new SX we could expect to find an aluminum frame with integral fuel reservoir, an aluminum swingarm, front and rear disc brakes and Showa suspensions.
We don’t have any info about the price either, but don’t expect to be a huge difference compared to the 1190 RX which at the moment is priced at $18,995.
More details including official prices, specification and when it will be available in dealers will be provided in the coming weeks.
Stay tuned for more details.
The tricked out Buell 1125R prototype by Magpul Ronin seems to have generated positive feedback in such a measure that Magpul went further on and refined it with the limited production goal in mind.
The main features setting the Magpul Ronin apart from a standard Buell 1125R are designed in-house and consist in girder front suspension, linkage fork with Penske coil-over monoshock, and front mounted radiator, all contouring a different approach towards the streetfighter style and we happen to like it very much. See the full press release attached after the jump.
Buell likes to consider the 1125CR a modern day café racer and while the perfect blending of class-leading performance with sinister styling and a wicked attitude to push the boundaries of the streetfighter category means they’re not at all far from the truth, we’ll just go ahead and say that this bike is close to being the ultimate in streetfighter performance and style. What qualifies it is the fact that it is pretty much a stripped down 1125R (a veritable superbike).
