Erik Buell Racing set for pre-Aragon WSBK test

Team Hero EBR duo Geoff May and Aaron Yates will test the 1190RX during a private outing in Spain ahead of Aragon.
Team Hero EBR have set their sights on making further progress with the 1190RX during a two-day World Superbike test at Alcarras later this week.

The American manufacturer made its much anticipated WSBK debut at Phillip Island, but while progress over the course of the weekend was certainly notable, it was still playing catch up compared with its rivals.


Not aided by lead rider Geoff May being ruled out of the two races by a collarbone injury, the American will return to action aboard the still-developing Superbike with this two-day outing in Spain.

“I am excited to get back to racing. I feel fortunate to have had the break between races as this has given me time to heal properly after surgery and for my team to work hard on the further development of the EBR 1190RX.”

The second round of the 2014 WSBK season will be held at Motorland Aragon on April 11-13

SuperSick58: Pack it up EBR - These bikes never won a race in AMA and they certainly cannot compete on a WSBK level...in fact, the AMA allowed these bikes to run in the 600cc class in order to have a chance...
They hold their own in AMA and the bike in 600cc is totally different...
