BOTT XR1, ready to go!

After several months working hard on this project, finally we can show the first BOTT XR1 pictures!



BOTT XR1

As you already know, this project started when Ramón Bellosta ordered us to build this bike. He had a clear idea of the aesthetics the bike should have. I think that the final bike is quite close to the first renders we made months ago.

Here you can compare a render with a real photo of the bike. The main difference is in the silencer, finally instead of the original one we used a Torque Hammer which is smaller, lighter and improves the engine performance a little bit.


BOTT XR1 render

Both the chassis and the subframe have been clear coated in such a way that you can see the welding cordons.

This first XR1 for Ramon has been customized with a lot of elements. Besides the silencer, the front fork and 8 pistons brake caliper are from a Buell 1125. Front master cylinder and clutch lever are from ISR (including the push buttons). The bike aslo has a Motogadget display, and an Easton handlebar. Rear shock is an Öhlins from the Buell 1125 race kit.

We also have been working on the kit that we will start selling very soon. With this kit it will be possible to convert a Buell XB into a BOTT XR1. We will sell the complete kit and also all the parts in a separated way. Shortly we will publish a post talking about this kit and some more options that we are going to sell for this bike. Those of you interested on the kit, or those who want to ask something about it, please write us to info@bottpower.com.

The final version of the bike will have also signal lights, rear brake light and license plate holder.

In some weeks we will publish a video showing the BOTT XR1 in action.

Meanwhile, we wish you Merry Crhistmas and a nice 2013!

    That is a gorgeous set up. I’ve got reservations around the HD engine and transmission, but you guys made it really, really compelling.

  • GrantC

    That no maintenence engine with the oil in the swingarm is a bitchen package. I need to be on the list for this kit.
    Jesse, I have an 04 XB12R and have burned up the local canyons for 8 years while only changing the oil and plugs. I you want to just want to ride and ride fast without expensive timely shop visits the XB platform is really incredible. And as far as being an HD; now that HD killed Buell, some gaskets and stuff are a little hard to find and they are not interchangable with the sportster at all. The Buell is based on the sporty, but it aint a sporty. Sportsers dont have 110 HP and 80 lbs of torque (please don’t quote me on the accuracy of those numbers)…..

    Regardless, this may be the perfect bike for me and my veiw a beautiful simple work of dirt tracking art!

  • GrantC

    David, is the rake and trail the same as my XB12R? I am curious if it will handle as good as my bike which I consider almost intuitive.
    I cant wait for all the details and availability!! Whahooo.

  • David Sánchez

    Thank you all for your support. 🙂

    GrantC: yes, the geometry is the same than the XB. 🙂
    We will provide information about the kit in a few days, thank you!

  • ZED

    Fantastic project! The pure essence of biking! This incredible look combined with the great dynamics of the Buell will be real fun on the road. Keep me updated with the availibility and price of the kit as soon you will sell it.

  • Chris
