Bottpower, you remember them, they designed the XR-1 kit to transform a Buell XB with a flat track look. Well, it looks like they turned their attention and design skills in the direction of Yamaha’s XSR900 and MT09 and came up with the XR9 Carbona kit and it looks mean, nasty and fast and that’s in a good way. It’s quite a transformation.
You don’t need to do the entire kit, but all of the pieces are designed to work together and create a more complete look. It’s an aggressive stance and though it looks track ready, the number plate has slots where daytime running lights shine through and there are two headlights hidden in the left and right radiator covers just below the air intakes. LED taillights are also placed rearward so it’s ready for the street.
I really like the looks, though I think I would prefer a bit more padding on the seat, but maybe I’m just going soft. Overall, the entire kit looks to be very well engineered and high quality. If you own an XSR900 or MT09, you might want to check this out.
