The Evo Racing FX Pro Twins F3 winning Pierobon X60R is one exotic bike. We recently had the chance to sample this work of art at our local proving ground.... Video Review: Jeff Ware

Riding a real racebike is always a good reminder of how great a motorcycle can be and all true racers have two key things in common ­– lightweight and good geometry.

One bike high on my bucket list to test has always been the Pierobon X60R, a super lightweight, compact, GP-style racer with a grunty Ducati Evo motor thrown in.

When Evo Racing owner Nick Byrne offered us a ride on the bike at the end of the 2018 season, I really didn’t have to think twice. As quickly as I could, I lined up some time at our proving ground, the ultimate place to test such an amazing bike. Check out the full written review up next week.
