2014 EBR 1190SX FS or Trade

UPDATE: Bike has been damaged, may be salvaged, I may keep it, stay tuned.

If you clicked on this ad, you probably know a lot about this bike, and you may even want one. Not for the faint of heart: it really is a superbike with no fairing. Same tuning, motor, suspension, footpegs, gearing as the 1190RX: it just has a different headlamp and slightly higher bars. It's about 335 pounds and makes over 160 hp. This is a true superbike, with world-class suspension, brakes and chassis. A far better bike than I am a rider, which is why I'm selling. There are only about 500 of these in the world and it should be ridden by someone who needs that kind of performance. I'd be happier with less juice. Too much hat, not enough Texan!

Mine is white (I have the airbox cover and tail plastic in Galactic Black, which is a sort of a root beer color as well, so you get two sets of bodywork) and has about 2000 miles on it. I am the original owner: I bought it last October new from a southern California EBR dealer. I did the initial service and have replaced the rear tire with an Angel ST; front is the original Diablo Rosso.

The only mods besides bar-end mirrors are the Oberon master cylinder (makes the bike rideable!) and a bigger rear sprocket so you can use second gear below 40 mph. title is clean, maint is up to schedule and there are no recalls or other issues I'm aware of (but this is NOT a bike for a novice owner!!!).

I'd consider an interesting motorcycle trade (I'd like a sporty naked bike with less than 100 hp, under 440 pounds) with cash to fill in the valuation gap. I do not need laptops, cars, trucks, guns, motorhomes, harleys, ex-wives, cheese graters, small appliances, pitbulls, lawn mowers or machine tools. IM is a pretty good way to reach me.

My dad used to own a Buell, until one day when he accidentally left his garage open overnight. Now he owns three.

Delay gratification and exercise financial responsibility, you say?
Why do you hate America?

Please post a follow up on the twisted wreck experience! I was secretly hoping this wouldn't sell so I could rent your 1190 for my birthday

Good luck with everything Gabe

Bummer. After reading the article to the bottom I realized that you wrote it lol.

"Full disclosure: when I found out about Twisted Road I added my own motorcycle (and have yet to rent it out), and I may benefit from a positive response to this story. So, unless you want to diminish my shining reputation for journalistic integrity, please, whatever you do, don’t rent the white 2014 EBR 1190SX located in the San Francisco Bay Area, priced at just $129 day with unlimited mileage. I wouldn’t be able to sleep well at night."
