The Italian bike chassis maker, Pierobon has unveiled updated version of their X60R superbike which they had first showcased a year back. The company has entered into some close tie ups with the big names like MotoGP and WSBK.

The New X60R was first revealed at the EICMA 2012 on the occasion of celebration of its 60 years in chassis making. The bike is based on the same F040 concept and derives technological benefits from MotoGP.

Additional air intakes have also been added to ensure proper supply of air to the airbox. The best thing about the bike is it allows the customers to order whole pre-built bike or the bike kits, allowing them to build their own bike. Is there anything more, that a bike lover can expect?
