Last year, our Christmas was ruined with the sighting of the Pierobon X60R sport bike. A small Italian company based in Bologna, for those who aren’t in the know, Pierobon has ties to some big projects in MotoGP & WSBK.

Known for their trellis chassis designs, the Pierobon X60R is the company’s two-wheeled flagship (be sure to checkout the Pierobon F042 street bike). We lusted after the X60R last year, you wanted one under your Christmas tree, and we all had to learn how to live our lives with disappointment afterwards.

Discontent to call things done, Pierobon has revised the X60R over the past year, with the most noticeable change being the Ducati Monster 1100 EVO air-cooled v-twin lump. Putting a little bit more pep in the bike’s step, Pierobon has also revised the chassis, namely the X60R’s swingarm.

Derived from the company’s GP designs, the chain-side of the swingarm has been fully enclosed, presumably for increased rigidity. Pierobon has also increased the size of the oil-cooler radiator to help with heat transfer on the more powerful motor.

Other features include an adjustable aluminum frame, Öhlins suspension, OZ Racing wheels, AIM instrumentation, and carbon fiber fairings (naturally). Like what you see? The Pierobon X60R is being distributed to North America by Boulder Motor Sports, and for the “handy with a wrench” types, there is a kit version of the bike as well.

Bored this Monday? Check out Pierobon’s website, which has a bevy of unobtanium racing parts (WSBK-spec frames? Yes, please).

    Bespoke to be sure, but the overall shape leaves something to be desired. Tiny front fairing and tail, huge fuel tank.
