Italy's Iron Pirate Garage has unveiled a Buell XB9 that capitalizes on its short wheelbase, 175 kg dry weight and 92Nm of torque. The workshop's modern take on the cafe racer begins with a hand-built rear frame, custom fiberglass air intake and creased front fairing, along with a set of Progressive Suspension units in lieu of Buell's traditional front forks. The entire cockpit is also rearranged, with the addition of Motogadget Mini displays and Assato bars sitting atop the triple trees. Check out detailed looks below.
