By virtue of this, in 2010 the Iberian preparer decided to create a cafè racer to commemorate all the great racing motorcycles of those years.

Called 9 1/2, it used as a starting point the twin-cylinder engine with a capacity of 83 hp of the Ducati ST2, combined with the chassis of an M900 modified to accommodate an aerodynamic tail.

The only modification to the engine was the coupling with the Wolfman exhaust manifolds and with the Laser Megaphone exhaust terminals. The braking system was supplied by Brembo.

The single-sided swingarm derived from the M900, the handlebars and the fuel bars used came from the 999.

To complete the report, the front mudguard was taken from the MT-03, the side footrests built by the SP and the saddle completely hand made by the trainer, as well as the hulls and the number plates.

Presented at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona that year, it was particularly appreciated by the public for its original style.
