Buell RRB 1190 Typhon
The new EBR 1190 RRB has helped the Pegasus Race
Team to win the 2010 Sound of Thunder Championship, which made the Team -
together with Gruner Engineering - to use the 185hp Erik Buell Racing Superbike
as their base for the prototype of an radical naked bike that has been dubbed
"Our idea was with our years of experience in Buell racing to concept the
ultimate Streetfighter with outstanding performance and a unique design," said
Team Manager Jens Kruper.
The Typhon study in fact has control blades and air splitters to lead - at
possible top speeds beyond 250 km/h - the air masses around the fork and frame.
It also got a more minimized frontscreen in the size of the old Buell S1 bikes.
"We now consider what spin-offs we gain from the Typhon study, there will be
coming first some parts to rebuild the Buell XB models and 1125R/CR, but further
thinking is explicitly not excluded," said Thomas Wanner, owner of Pegasus Race
teams from Switzerland.
Except for the EBR racing exhaust system, with its adjustable clip-ons, the
digital cockpit, and other fine parts, the Typhon is ready to go for the public
"EBR is working intensely right now on getting the new 1190RS Superbike model
ready for production, which is consuming all our resources. We had been talking
with our friends at Pegasus about our plans for a streetfighter model that would
follow the 1190RS, and mentioning we could not work on it at this time. Pegasus
asked if they could build a concept model to show, so we sent many CAD models
over for them and our friends at Gruner to use to speed up the design process.
They did a great job in a very short time!" stated Erik Buell on the Typhon.
