Experience the exceptional by riding a brand-new EBR 1190RX or 1190SX in the Appalachian Mountains, courtesy of Erik Buell Racing (EBR) and East End Motorsports (soon to be Flying Chairs). Hour-long rides on famous roads around Asheville, North Carolina, will be scheduled, for qualifying riders, next Tuesday and Wednesday, April 7 and 8, 2015.
There will be only four spirited EBR rides per day, with a limit of four riders per tour, to maximize the experience of piloting the most powerful yet nimble American-made performance bikes on some of the best roads in the USA. Both the “racetrack-ready” EBR 1190RX and the naked 1190SX will be available to test, each sporting the same 185-hp V-twin engine inside a very nimble chassis.
All that’s required to qualify for this free event is: a few years of serious sportbike experience, a valid license with motorcycle endorsement, and riding gear that includes a DOT full-face helmet, a motorcycling jacket with armor, over-the-ankle boots, leather gloves and appropriate pants. Any gear exceeding these requirements is welcome, such as full leathers or pants with armor.
Next week’s rides are scheduled to take place 10:00 am, 12:00, 2:00 and 4:00 pm, Tuesday and Wednesday. Each ride will be approximately one-hour long, with a short break in the middle of the ride. Riders are highly encouraged to RSVP prior to the event, to reserve a seat, as there are only 32 available slots. Each rider is required to show up 30-minutes prior to departure for a ride meeting, sign-up, gear inspection and orientation. RSVP by phone, 9:30am-6:00pm Eastern: (828) 774-5022.
The EBR 1190RX and 1190SX are the culmination of one man’s initiative and passion, celebrating over 30 years of designing and building America’s only street-legal sportbike. Unique features of the EBR models include a single, perimeter-rotor front brake with an 8-piston caliper, and an aluminum frame housing an integral fuel tank. Be prepared to be awed by the heavyweight 1190cc engine’s wide power band, mated to the handling feel of a lightweight chassis.
