Every EBR 1190RX is hand-built in East Troy, Wisc. Erik Buell himself showed us around.
This is Erik Buell, the namesake for Erik Buell Racing.
Buell kindly gave us a tour of his company's factory in East Troy, Wisc.

Once assembled, the bike is built around the motor.
The motor is a stressed member of the bike, meaning the suspension is bolted directly to it.
The frame cradles the motor, leaving room for a large air box.
A row of front wheels ready for mounting.
The "fuel" tanks on EBRs don't actually hold any fuel. It's stored in the frame.
