Even though the company has yet to reach its first anniversary, Erik Buell Racing took a major step in the release of its new brand with the debut of the 1190RS in the AMA Superbike championship at the Mid Ohio Raceway over the weekend.

EBR, which spawned from the closing of the Buell motorcycle line by Harley Davidson, nearly claimed two top ten finishes in the debut of the relatively untested 1190RS.Top rider Geoff May placed tenth in race one on Saturday.  On Sunday, May finished 11th on the AMSOIL/EBR 1190RS.

The new bike had undergone extensive testing in preperation for the Mid-Ohio event, but the bike came through tech inspection in need of an extra 25-pounds in weight to meet the minimum weight regulations. May also said he struggled with a soft tire on Sunday, meaning the bike was losing grip during the race that saw temperatures well over 90-degrees.

EBR will continue testing before the next round at Laguna Seca, in Montery, Calif. July 22, 2011.

Building motorcycles without compromise. It’s been Erik Buell’s dream for more than 30 years. It’s no longer a dream.

Introducing Erik Buell Racing.

EBR is the very definition of the American spirit. Motorcycles designed and manufactured in East Troy, Wisconsin embodying superb technology from around the world. Whether it’s Austrian four-stroke, liquid-cooled power plants or Swedish suspension components, EBR engineers global performance integration into every model.

We’re starting slowly, building only 100 of our inaugural 1190RS models. After that, we’ll ramp up with more production and other models.

Perhaps you’d like to be a part of motorcycle history by owning one of the first EBRs to roll off the line. Maybe you’re just curious to see what we can do with nobody looking over our shoulder. Whatever your interest level, we can promise the ballsiest American sport motorcycles ever built .

Before he was a successful engineer/motorcycle designer/motorcycle manufacturer, Erik Buell was a motorcycle racer. And like any good racer, when you get knocked down, you get right back up.

Well Erik is not only back up, he and the rest of us are running hard and fast.

We think like racers, making decisive, aggressive and calculated decisions. But we also think like passionate riders. We make bikes that we want to ride. Most of all, we feed off Erik and his fire-in-the-gut passion to build fast, magnificently engineered motorcycles.
