It would take a pretty well-trained eye to recognize a Triumph Bonneville in the special bike we are about to present today, but that’s basically what it is, though the work performed on it by Italian specialist Centro Moto Lodi makes it look like something completely different. Well, you got a cool video here to see what happened.
The classic Twin from the Hinckley-based manufacurer has been transformed into a wicked cafe racer with a very scenic impact thanks to the tasteful contrast of its silver brushed aluminum parts and the black - polished or matte - of its engine and chassis. This awesome machine has been recently showcased at the Tridays Rally of Neukirchen, Austria, and is the brainchild of Italian Mattia Foroni, from the Department of Special Customizations at CML Classic, based in the Italian town of Lodi.
Engine and chassis haven’t been modified, but some extra oomph comes from a new exhaust, namely a 2-into-1 system courtesy of Zard Cross, which has been painted in black, while the orange-painted engine head also makes for a nice touch. The bike has also been given a set of 17″ rims fitted with 120/70 and 150/60 Michelin Power One performance tyres, handlebars by LLS with levers by Joker, bar-end mirrors by Rizoma, blackened head lamp by Bates, LED tail light by Waltermoto and digital instrumentation provided by Mini Sweepers. Throw in an orange chain and you got it: cool enough for you?
