2013 EBR 1190RS Carbon Edition

Written by  November 30, 2014

This exotic racing motorcycle is the 2013 EBR 1190RS Carbon Edition. What makes this bike really special is its low weight of only 389 lbs., and to achieve this performance, it was built using lightweight materials such as carbon and magnesium components. There are also several high end parts from many top manufacturers.

The heart of this bike is a liquid cooled 1190 cc V-Twin engine producing a maximum output of 175 hp at 9750 Rpm and 97 ft.-lbs. at 9400 rpm. A six speed transmission with wet multi-plate, slipper clutch compliments this powerful motor, which is fed by a 4.5 gallon fuel tank. And where the rubber hits the road, the 2013 EBR 119RS Carbon Edition rides on 120/70R- 17 front and 190/55R-17 rear tires.

If you think you have what it takes to ride this type of motorcycle, check out the 2013 EBR 119RS Carbon Edition for yourself at Reno’s Powersports KC.
