XRay Project was born in 2014 from an idea of Roberto Calissano who is a great motorcycle enthusiast and more in general he is very fond of mechanics and had the desire to create whole engine covers moulded in transparent plastic polymers.
This bold ambition that was strongly discouraged by many since it was widely believed at the time that there weren’t any plastic materials that could withstand the thermal and chemical stress produced by air and oil cooled engines, brought him to meet with Alberto Avola, a valid and expert technician specialized in the construction of plastic mould tools.
Together they started to tackle this technological challenge and after endless tests, substantial investments and spasmodic researches they succeed in patenting the use of a special technopolymer for the making of transparent engine covers.
Thus the name XRay Project, that is the possibility through this innovative material with features that makes it similar to a “transparent metal”, to being able to see the moving mechanics of an engine likewise at what X-Rays allow to do in the medical diagnostics field allowing to see under the human skin.
The meeting of Roberto and Alberto led to the development of other projects besides the making and selling of transparent engine covers for the BMW R nineT models and soon the product range expanded and now it includes central stands, trapezoidal and curved high performance oil radiators, oil pressure gauge kits…
The character affinities of Roberto and Alberto and an innate quest for maximum quality and precision bring XRay to making always high quality products using the best available materials and an obsessive attention to details, even the smallest.
All XRay products are the end result of hundreds of hours of technical drawings, prototyping, dimensional checkings as well as of many hours and kilometers spent driving the vehicles for which they are designed allowing therefore always top reliability and lasting performance.
