A quick Q&A with Erik Buell on the EBR 1190RS wheels
The other day, in comments under the latest EBR video, Jason McCrash said he was curious to find out more about the EBR 1190RS’s wheels. Good thinking Jason, we just had a quick chat with Erik about them, here’s what he has to say. What’s the deal with these wheels? "Cast in Ohio, machined in Michigan. Nice light wheels of unique EBR design. Not sure where there are separate images." Wh...

Racing the EBR 1190 Typhon
Pre-season testing in Spain revealed that the EBR 1190 Typhon gave away about 9mph on the straights to the fully-faired RR. So, Pegasus Race Team decided to enter the British, European, American Race Series using the faired bike for fast circuits and the Typhon for slower tighter ones. Last weekend, despite setting what was probably the fastest lap of the Lausitzring on a naked bike ever, the team...

Developing the EBR 1190 Typhon
What do you do if you’re a tiny volunteer-only European race team developing a naked version of the EBR 1190RR both as a product for the street and as a race bike? Why, you obtain the fastest liter bike of the moment, the BMW S1000RR, and spend a week in Spain trying to make your roadster go faster than the superbike, that’s what. Having just presented the EBR 1190 Typhon as a concept model ...

EBR 1190 Typhon hits the track
Remember the Erik Buell Racing 1190 Typhon? It’s a concept streetfighter based on the 185rwhp EBR 1190RR and built by the world’s largest EBR race team. These exclusive photos and exclusive video show its first track outing at Spain’s Motorland Aragon where it was able to lap within seven seconds of race bikes like the BMW S1000RR and Aprilia RSV4, despite being saddled with a stock 1125 mot...

Custom: Manx Norton Moderne
If you wanted to capture the spirit of the original Manx Norton in a modern bike, which would you choose? Sebastien Beaupere picked the Buell XB because of its powerful air-cooled motor. Originally intending to stick that engine in a featherbed-style frame, he became convinced he couldn’t best the stock Buell item. He did swap in an original Manx seat, hand-formed aluminum bodywork and air-intak...

Geoff May’s EBR 1125RR
These are the first pictures of the AMSOIL-sponsored EBR 1125RR that Geoff May will race at Daytona on March 12. Scott from Cleveland CycleWerks snapped them for us at the Indy Dealer Expo this weekend. While Erik Buell says this bike will be superseded by the EBR 1190RS in time for the AMA Pro Superbike Infineon round in May, this contraption is still far from shabby. The 1126cc Rotax v-twin make...

The race-engineered Buell hardtail

If you’re Pegasus, you leverage your experience and expertise racing Buells into designing parts for the hundreds of thousands of brand loyalists who suddenly find themselves hung out to dry by Harley.

Erik Buell’s latest patent combines exhaust, swingarm
Erik Buell likes to say that the motorcycles he makes, including the EBR 1190RS debuting this winter, have only just caught up with designs he first penned 20 years ago. Here’s a rare glimpse inside some of his latest thinking, this patent for an exhaust-incorporating swingarm was just published. Somewhat confusingly titled a “Movable Exhaust System” in the patent, the concept here is re...

Custom: Pegasus Race Team 1125RR “Crazy Cab”
Remember the experimental Buell 1125R race bike built by Pegasus Race Team? It’s been converted into a two-seat track taxi that their champion rider, Harald Kitsch, uses to show nice young ladies what he does for a living. Riding this two-up, he was only nine seconds a lap slower than his fastest race lap at Oschersleben aboard the EBR 1190RR and on pace with S1000RR-mounted competitors. The ex...
