Speed Triple Cafe - October 27, 2011, 01:38 PM


The Triumph Speed Triple rocked the motorcycling world when it came in to production in 1994. Powered by Triumph's triple series of engines and sporting hydraulic front forks, mono shock rear suspension and disc brakes front and rear, it was a true wolf in sheep's clothing. It's stripped down, naked styling and Superbike performance influenced a new generation of custom builders and pioneered the Street Fighter movement. So to see one stripped down even further and labeled as a Cafe Racer is somewhat out of the ordinary.

The 1995 T300 Speed Triple has been modified by French custom workshop Garnier Motorcycles who have managed to modernise the bikes now dated styling (see above). The very little fairing that existed on the original bike has been removed leaving only the bright orange tank, however it's now far from original. The new tail section no longer has room for the electrics or a battery with the custom exhausts fitting snuggly beneath it so the tank has been chopped and the rear third now houses them all.

Most of the bikes front end remains the same with some minor aesthetic upgrades. The twin mufflers from Mecatwin are fed by the 3 cylinders using elbow sections and lengths from the original pipes. Performance has only received minor tweaks with some carb adjustments and a set of K&N filters but also now benefits from the loss of some weight.
