American motorbike maker, and technology partner of Hero Motocorp, Eric Buell Racing has just taken the sheets off its brand new naked street bike called the 1190 SX. The new naked bike was showcased at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and although the company did not give away too much information on the bike, they did allow a few journalists to ride the new bike. What we can tell you is that the bike is already in production, and it is a naked version of the company’s 1190RX sports bike, with the same aluminum frame. The powerhouse most likely has been shared but re-tweaked. The original engine is an 1190cc 72-degree V-Twin liquid cooled unit that pumps out 184bhp and 138Nm of torque. We can also see massive Showa front forks and mono-shock rear suspension, and Pirelli Diablo RossoCorsatyres. The front wheel gets a massive 386mm disc brake, while the rear wheel gets two 220mm disc brakes. The bike will first be available in the European market towards the end of the year, and the company claims it has already received 100 bookings from UK, Netherlands and Germany.
