Erik Buell Racing has begun promoting a new streetbike based on its 1190RR race machine.

The new motorcycle, to be called the EBR 1190RS, will be the first Buell streetbike to be produced since Harley-Davidson shut down the Buell brand in October. Based on the name, it should be similar to the 1190RR race bike which uses an 1190cc V-Twin engine claiming 185 hp and 93 ft-lb. of torque.

The EBR 1190RS is still at the pre-production and testing phases, but Erik Buell’s record label Rat Pak Records is now selling clothing bearing the EBR 1190RS logo. A teaser video for the new bike will be released on Sept. 14 featuring music from Wratchet Head, a new band from Queensryche’s Michael Wilton.

Erik Buell’s non-compete agreement with Harley-Davidson will reportedly end February 2011, so no official details about the 1190RS should be expected until then.
