Post Listing Update: This EBR did not get any interest at the BIN of $19,000.
It’s no secret that I am leading the EBR train. Erik’s brainchild, the EBR 1190RS, is the best sportbike America has to offer and I cannot wait to own one. Early models were built to meet AMA homologation requirements, and the quality is reflected both in the materials and the price. Nearly $40,000 (huge money at the time) got you carbon fiber fairings, Ohlins suspension, and the same brake cooling ducts that you see now on modern MotoGP and WSBK machines. Of course, buying an EBR also means the frame doubles as the fuel tank, and the externally mounted brake rotor serves as an unmistakable reminder that you’re on something special.
According to the listing, this bike is number 7 of 35 Carbon Editions made in 2013. With just 500 miles on the clock, the owner was no doubt aware that there was a monster hiding in his house (with photo evidence). A factory race exhaust has been installed and the ECU has been tuned for 93 octane pump gas. There is also a Bazzaz tuner with quickshifter accessory included, but not installed. A host of stock parts and fluids are a welcome addition, especially since oil definitely does not last six years, even in a crank case. Unfortunately, there is a blemish in the carbon fiber. A photo is included, so judge for yourself. Finding replacements for anything on this bike may be difficult, but such is the case with low production, special edition bikes. The owner is asking $19,000, and says the 1190RS is “… sure to appreciate.” I don’t know about that, but $19,000 is spot on for an 1199 Panigale R, and there are comfortably more than 35 of those. Any thoughts on the asking price?
