Erik Buell throws another punch at the sportbike market with the impressive new 1190RX revealed today at the inaugural AIMExpo in Orlando, Florida. Although based on the existing low-production 1190RS, EBR reps claim there are 426 new parts on the RX.
Highlights include full-color TFT instrumentation, a 21-level traction-control system and an LED headlight. Lightweight materials, including a magnesium subframe, keep pounds down to just 419 ready to ride (but without fuel).Also some impressive numbers to note: 185 horsepower; 102 ft-lb of torque; and a 186-plus-mph top speed. And the most important number: $18,995 for an MSRP.
