I hope that Cycle world interview finally puts the "Rotax" engines rumors to bed.  Comes straight from the man's mouth....."not sharing any components from any other Rotax engine...... 1125R only had 3 total components from Rotax originally......all of the assembling was done in house....Rotax makes no contribution whatsoever to their manufacture now.....

Thanks for posting.

Crucially for EBR, the 1190RX is considerably down on top speed compared with its rivals, with May reaching the speed gun at 278km/h. This is compared with Sylvain Guintoli, who was the quickest rider in straight line at 314km/h.



This does not bode well. It's gonna be a long season if they can't rent some solid rocket boosters.

Remember, they had NO WSBK practice prior to this week.  New crews and new bikes on different tires running different fuel (compared to AMA) with riders with no prior experience on this track.  STEEP learning curve.  It's only reasonable to expect it to take them a while (maybe a long while) to be competetive. May started out ~8 seconds down a lap on the first day of testing, dropped that to ~4 seconds a lap by the second day of testing.   Patience, grasshopper.   Bigsmile

Considering EBR started from scratch 4 years ago the fact that they're even here is a miracle.
