185 horsepower + 102 ft-lbs of torque = True Speed

After Harley-Davidson bought his Buell brand and then dissolved it, many wondered what American motorcycle icon and engineer Erik Buell would do. Well, as any great visionary would do, Buell hunkered back into his Wisconsin lab to do what he does best: design world class two-wheelers. The result? Erik Buell Racing‘s EBR 1190RX, a more street-applicable version of their 1190RS Super Bike. As can be expected the EBR 1190RX not only looks the part, with thoroughly modern faring that rivals that of the Italians, but blood and guts components that threaten both the Europeans and Japanese at their world domination. Weighing only 419 pounds, the EBR 1190RX boasts a Pirelli-shredding 185 horsepower, 102 lb-ft torque, aluminum frame and swingarm, hydraulic clutch and Showa suspension, making it the first true high-performance American production sport bike. Not only does it boast the highest torque available on a street-legal production bike, but its price tag of $19,000 means its attainable for most petrol-headed motorcycle enthusiasts. Completely built in America, the EBR 1190RX should be hitting showrooms right about now. Find your dealer here.
