Erik Buell Racing has released the specifications and the price of its naked streetfighter, the 1190SX, the naked version of its supersport 1190RX. The good news, however, is that EBR has not detuned the original power delivered by the engine in order to make it more controllable. It simply means that the naked avatar of the 1190RX gets the same1191cc V-twin engine that delivers 185bhp of power and 138Nm of torque and weighs just 188kg minus fuel. The 1190SX also shares the 1190RX's frame which also houses fuel and single front rim-mounted 386mm disc brake with a larger than life 8-piston caliper. It also flaunts the hubless wheels that the 1190RX is known for.
The 1190SX outshines the KTM 1290 Super Duke R by 5 more bhps and weighs a little lesser than its KTM counterpart making it an exceptional powerhouse.
The price for the 1190SX is kept at $16,995 (Rs 10.15 lakhs) as compared to RX's $18,995 (Rs 11.35 lakhs) and the shipments to the dealerships is expected to begin in July. The 1190SX will be available in Frost Bite White, Racing Red and Galactic Black color schemes.
