Eric Buell Racing has officially unveiled their new street-fighter the EBR 1190SX at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway . The bike is at he speedway for its press run and will make it to commercial sales pretty soon. The EBR 1190SX is the naked version of the 1190RX and share the chassis and most other features with the bike .

Apart form the 1190RX , EBR has another model called the 1190AS which has only been made in very limited number (35 to be exact) and costs almost 46,000$ .
It is known fact the Indian Manufacturer Hero has almost 49.2% stakes on EBR . The equity partnership ensures that Hero gets major technical and design support from EBR team , which can be used by Hero in its bikes . In fact the recently launched Karizma ZMR& R , The soon-to-be Launched Hero HX250 etc are heavily inspired on the EBR’s traditional design . EBR could also sell their bikes in India via the CKD route ( making use of Hero’s production plants) .However no such news about a EBR debut in India is currently heard .
