We asked ourselves what kind of bike would make a great first impression. Our answer:
Meet the 1190RS. Our flagship. Our pride and joy. Made with all the engineering and performance traits we admire in a sport motorcycle. It’s the culmination of years of learning, victories, setbacks along with an unrelenting passion to build a motorcycle on our own terms. We’re happy to share it with the world but honestly… we’re just happy we get to ride it.

Quite frankly, this turned out better than we expected.

We knew from the beginning we could build this bike. But we expected any number of roadblocks to knock us off track. After all, starting a company in this economic climate with no other goal than to produce high performance motorcycles takes either a fair amount of ignorance or a brass set. But things kept falling into place. And today, the reward is 389lbs. of meticulously designed sport motorcycle propelled by a powerful 175hp motor. Must be fate.

Producing an American motorcycle today means understanding what kind of engineering and componentry will make the bike its absolute best – no matter where it comes from. So, with our global partnerships in full effect, we’re designing and building motorcycles like the 1190RS that will make the world sit up and pay attention to red, white and blue output.

With only 35 2013s being made, better get one now.

The EBR RS will shock even the most experienced sport bike rider with its performance, styling and handling. Problem is, we’re only making 35 of them. Own a piece of motorcycle history.
