How come no one has commented on the fact that the RX is leaked now? And how ugly that pipe is! Looks so out of place! and the header heat shield looks like it is bloated.

I think/hope they introduce the SX on weds also.

And this does not look like all other bikes out there, it still looks like a buell to me! Just a really smooth looking buell.

Hmm need some better shots or see it in person to form a solid opinion.  Pipe definately sucks but then again isnt that like a Buell tradition.....lol.  Looking forward to the SX.

I think it looks sweet.  Yea the can is huge but it has to conform to noise standards that's why the stock 1125 exhaust pointed right at the brake rotor was to disappate the noise so it could get to those standards.  That's why most of us the first mod we do it an exhaust.  So that doesn't bother me.  It looks almost just like the 1190RS.  Hell it even has the brake cooling scoop for the front.  Pretty sweet.  Can't wait to see the SX as I'm a naked fan myself.

It must be the bike cause it was taken down from the original source "Twistedthrottle" FB page.

Im disappointed in the look. From the little we can see, not much at all has changed from the RS model. Ill stay positive but i was looking for a wow factor. Hopefully that in a good price....

Waiting for SX model.....

Thought #1: I think the RX is drop dead sexy gorgeous.. pictures never do a bike justice, gotta see it in person to fully appreciate..

#2:  first thing most people do is ditch the factory pipe right?..  why even look at it

#3:  a Ducati panigale cruised down my street the other day.. (actually heard it before I saw it) the EBR RX is going to look and sound just as good, if not better.. for half the price!

#4  American made, American made, American made!

The in your face, EBR "WOW" factor is coming fella's..  be patient

Not impressed, especially at the "supposed" price point of $18k & up.

So 18k and up means what? Will be be more than one version of the RX? Eg different suspension for different price points? Or just one model? The two photos ive seen look like the yellow one may have ohlins but the white one definately looks showa-ish, yellow could be just a spring color, but then again if you look at the RS in the photo next to the RX the rear shock looks the same but the photo int that clear.

My thinking is that the SX is $18K, and the RX/AX are "up" (close to $20K) since there's more to them (fairings/bags etc)?

so in that photo i see 3 RX's Yellow, Red, Red & White and what looks like Hero's 250-650cc range.

correct me if i'm wrong.

I cant wait for the AX, and SX. the RX looks fancy but it looks like any other +1000cc sport bike now. At least from what you can see here. I just hope the new models follow soon and are comparable in cost and not 45K lol. But yeah im happy they are finnaly coming out, but still a little disappointed.

My thoughts exactly.

Glad EBR is appearing to be doing well, and coming out with nice bikes, but they just seem to be looking more and more "blah".

Boring. Looks like a liter jap bike from the picture. Maybe he is doing that so he can sell some product to the masses.

so far all this hype is entertaining but I agree with this

Boring.


not that I could afford a new bike but I sure as hell would not drop 15-18k for one of those, I could care less if Erik personally tightened every bolt by hand..

I understand how some of you feel

but I had a feeling that regardless of what is rolled out it's cookie cutter time at EBR

enjoy yourselves and the best of luck to all who pull the trigger on the new EBR's

I seriously doubt that he will ever capture the uniqueness, individuality or the soul that the XB series delivered again...

just my humble opinion

It's interesting to see the bike resemble the Barracuda 2.  But the drivetrain matches the RS.  I can't help but to wonder if the SX will look like the Typhon 1190.

I really like the tail, a lot. The muffler does stand out, a lot. Not sure why they didn't do a better job integrating it. The angle of the pic isn't very flattering to the fairings, I'll reserve opinion until better pics are available. Overall, the looks are promising. I never liked the looks of the 1125R, this RX seems to share some basic styling cues with that bike but seems to have smoothed out the areas I didn't care for.

I, too, am excited to see the SX. I'm also looking forward to the official release tomorrow. I'm curious to see what else EBR is unveiling.

Nope, there's also a red RX next in line after the yellow one.  If you look you can see the passenger seat and the tip of the black muffler extension, just like on the yellow one.

Leaving in a few to catch a flight to Orlando.  Anyone who is going to be there can pm me if they want to meet up and chill.  Will be there until Thursday.

If you look at the green bike in the background you will notice the resemblance to a Hero Splendor iSmart.

interesting...

Quote:
"EBR 1190 RX - 1190 cc V-twin - capable of developing 175 hp at 9,750 rev / min and 131 Nm of torque at 9,400 rev / min.

The Erik Buell Racing have informed the 1190RX will be followed by two other new models, already announced, they will use its own engine-chassis package: the naked 'SX' and crossover 'AX'."

found this on an Italian website...

does this mean that the SX and AX wont use the EBR/Rotax collaborated engine?

Don't get me wrong, I love me some Buell's. But the odds of THAT happening is very minuscule indeed. The 1199 (IMO) is the best looking Duc since the original 916 and that bike changed the look of ALL sportbikes to come after it. The 1199's taillights, the exhaust, mouthwatering. That is one amazing bike.
