We believe from the bottom of our hearts that the Buell was the best muscle street/sport bike to come out of America. Its torque-filled Harley-Davidson engine and brutish styling was a perfect combination to create a punch. While the days of Buell are long gone, there are some who still take the brand as inspiration, like Bottpower, who have used a Buell XB12 as a base machine to build the BOTT XC1 Cafe Racer.
The BOTT XC1 Cafe Racer has been lightened by 20 kgs from the original Buell XB12 which weighs 179 kg. The cafe racer shares most of its components with the Spanish company’s other BOTT XR1 machine.
But the absolute best deal about the body that is installed on the machine is that it is a modular kit which can be converted to fit virtually any cafe racer -styled machine, after certain alterations to its subframe, tank and seat of course.
Bottpower has a lot of options on offer for customers to create their own style cafe racer. The could choose from either getting a complete one made by Bottpower, or the company would be happy to ship across one of their kits so customers can build on their own. But apart from these, the company also offers each part of the kit separately giving cafe racer owners the complete freedom to go wild with their own taste of customisation.
