David Sánchez sent me an update on the BOTT XR-1 project. The chassis design is finished, they’ve built the jig and they’re beginning to weld the first unit. Because of the positive response to their initial renderings, they have decided to go ahead with the creation of a kit so you’ll be able to take a Buell XB and transform it into your very own BOTT XR-1.
The frame was impossible to see in the initial images of the complete bike so they created quite a few views of the chassis design. It looks compact and strong. They’re promising photos very soon.
Like I said when writing about those initial images, this might be a good time to start looking for a used Buell XB. At 375 pounds, the BOTT XR-1 should be one helluva lot of fun and is an absolute featherweight compared to an XR1200. Very nice!
