We ride Erik Buell’s latest superbike at the JenningsGP track in Florida.

It's been a long time since there was an American-made superbike, and even longer since one was actually competitive against Japanese and European rivals. Which is exactly why we've been anticipating a ride on EBR's brand-new 1190RX for such a long time. The RX, for the record, picks up where the carbon-clad and ultra-exclusive 1190RS (priced at $40,000) left off, but it slashes that price by more than half and feels far more refined than the homologation RS ever was.

By now you've seen pictures of the new 1190RX and read our First Ride report. Now, let this video hold you over until you get the chance to see (and hear) this American-made superbike in action.
