Pepo Rosell of XTR does not only build sweet Ducati customs. His lastest build is this 2011 Honda Hornet 600 Cafe Racer. The list of mods on this thing are endless and have transformed this machine into a urban street monster ready to rip up the pavement.
Starting with the stock Hornet, XTR modified the frame, added a set of Ducati Monster USD forks with a BMW R nineT front fender and custom brackets. This give the front end a cool beefy look over the stock one. In the rear, a hand crafted sub-frame was fabricated and finished off with an XTR leather seat. To flow with the lines of the seat, a modified Honda CB550 tank was used.
Upgrading the performance of any bike it one of XTR’s major concerns. In the rear, an Ohlins shock was added which is a substantial improvement over the stock one. As for the engine, a custom XTR/SPrak exhaust system was installed. To help the 600cc engine breathe even better, DNA pod filters with new fuel maps were installed.
All in all, this Honda Hornet 600 is one cool custom with performance to match the looks. Be sure to head over to XTR Pepo’s website and social media pages to check out all the cool customs he has built over the last few decades. I promise, you will be hooked and anticipating what he will cook up next.
