For the better part of the last decade, Spain’s BOTT Power has carved out an impressive reputation for customizing high-performance Buell motorcycles, bestowing the V-Twin-powered sports bikes with striking visual transformations that are backed by genuine competition-grade engineering and componentry. So, needless to say, it came as a huge surprise when the Valencia-based custom moto outfit pulled the cover off its latest project, a carbon fiber bolt-on kit for Yamaha’s XSR900 and MT-09 platforms dubbed the “Carbona XR9.”
Commissioned by Yamaha’s Yard Built program, the CAD-designed bolt-on kit is constructed from carbon fiber and features a new tank cover with integrated intake tunnels, a squat tail section with integrated number boards and an Alcantara saddle, and a modern tracker-style front number plate with incorporated LED lighting. There’s also a bespoke set of 3D-printed radiator covers that also sport supplementary projector headlights. Guided by the same principals used to create BOTT’s Pikes Peak Class-winning XR1R racer, the prototype XR9 has also been gifted carbon fiber Rotobox wheels paired with titanium axles and Bridgestone racing slicks, carbon fiber forks packing Öhlins TTX cartridges, an Öhlins mono-shock, carbon composite handlebars, Gilles Tooling rear-sets, an Akrapovič exhaust, and titanium bolts and hardware throughout. The BOTT Power ‘XR9 Carbona’ Yamaha XSR900 (and MT-09) Bolt-On Kit is available now, starting from $6,085.
