    The bike has been designed and built by Down and Out Caf Racers in conjunction with Triumph and is based on the newly-launched, 900cc Street Twin. Combining contemporary style with Triumphs classically authentic Bonneville DNA, the Street Twin has proved a perfect starting point. The statement look is achieved with a massive 150 section front tyre and 180 section rear. Brushed alloy front and rear guards give a hint of heritage, whilst internally-wired bars, complete with microswitch switchgear give modern clean lines. A handcrafted alloy mount now houses the speedo and adds to the minimalist front end mounted on the extra wide Down and Out yokes which provide the width to fit the front tyre.

    To further add to the unique stance the Street Twin is fitted with spoked wheels instead of the standard models cast wheel setup. The bike features a handmade saddle, on a new three-quarter seat base created from scratch for this build. The classically-style frame loop echoes old-school Bonneville builds on this thoroughly modern, ABS-equipped custom. Finishing details include Down and Out micro-indicators, one-off black headlamp guard, sports levers and Down and Out chain guard.

    Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said,
    We are very excited as well as delighted to see the custom Street Twin at the Bike Shed, Paris. The Street Twin provides an ideal platform for customization; staying true to the classic Bonneville features, the custom Street Twin emerges as a perfect amalgam of classic aesthetics and contemporary looks.

    The tail light killed it, why a round one ?? Looks like a local train rip off, Boxy would look absolutely gorgeous or atleast like a skyline gtr type dual rounds 😍. IMO, micro led (high-tech) doesn't fit with round tail light, fit and finish looks fab though.
