Is it just me, or are customisers a lot like rock bands? You have your favourites. You wear the t-shirts. You feel a little tinge of excitement when you hear that they have released something new. Well, in my mind, Spain’s XTR Pepo is more than a little like AC/DC. Yes, they stick to what they know, but they are so damn good at what they know you just don’t care. And if there’s one thing that Pepo Rosell is good at, it’s ‘sell your granny to the abattoir to get one’ racers. Here’s his latest.
As with many bike builders in Europe, December is ‘getting ready for the MBE show’ time. And it’s no different for Pepe. “Right now, I’m busy finishing a Ducati racer prototype that I will present at the Verona bike show in January,” he says, smiling. Looks like our MBE ‘things to do’ list just gained an extra tick box.
