Puig’s Diablo Is an MT-09 SP with a Bespoke Winglet-Equipped Aero Kit

Originally founded in a 1,000-square-foot garage in Granollers by a pair of brothers, Puig Racing first got its start producing fairings for small-displacement scoots from makes like Vespa and Derbi, though has since grown into one of the world’s leading aftermarket motorcycle parts brands. While the company now produces an enormous range of parts — such as frame sliders, engine covers, and mirrors — Puig’s main focus has always been on aero components like belly pans, windscreens, and spoilers. And Puig is now leaning into this identity with the debut of its first-ever one-off motorcycle concept known as the “Diablo.”

Like Yamaha’s YZF-R7, the Diablo sees the Tuning Fork Company’s tried and true mid-sized parallel-twin platform wrapped in custom bodywork. Touted as being the brand’s “vision of a motorcycle of the future,” the Diablo features a custom tank cover with integrated controls, plus a bespoke tail section, a custom LED headlight array set beneath a custom windscreen-equipped cowl, and a set of radiator covers that feed into a belly pan. Unsurprisingly, the Diablo has been created with a major focus on improved aerodynamics, with a set of winglets adorning the bike’s custom headlight arrangement, plus integrated spoilers set in the tail and additional winglets incorporated into the build’s radiator shrouds and belly pan — all of which collectively afford a massive amount of downforce.

As an SP-spec, the Yamaha donor bike already featured a top-shelf Öhlins suspension setup which Puig has opted to retain, along with high-end braking hardware that’s now been supplemented via ducts that channel cool air to the calipers. The bike also sports a myriad of parts from Puig’s existing catalog such as engine covers and a set of adjustable levers. The use of new clip-on handlebars also affords Puig’s two-wheeled concept a markedly more aggressive riding position.

Thus far, Puig’s Diablo concept is merely a design exercise, though, according to the company, this bike showcases the future of its aftermarket aero-focused parts.
