BottPower BOTT XR1 is made from spare Buell parts

After waiting for almost 2 years, the Spanish company BottPower finally finished the BOTT XR1, a custom motorcycle made for, and imagined by Ramón Bellosta.

The engine is an air-cooled v-twin motor borrowed from a Buell XB with around 100hp for a bike that which weighs close to 170kg (375lb), so you know it will be agile and fast. The style is a little bit old school, with the flat track, even if it has a lot of carbon fiber to make it look sportier and also lighter.
Let's get technical. The front fork, the silencer and the eight pistons brake caliper all come from a Buell 1125. ISR levers for the front brake and the clutch with an Öhlins rear shock, a flat handlebar from Easton and a Motogadget display. It will also be available as a kit for the Buell.
