The Triumph Speed Triple hits all the right buttons with a torquey 1050 3 cylinder engine and a naked street fighter look, it’s a fun bike, but suppose Triumph wanted to offer a 1050 superbike, what would they do? Well, Six Monkeys, over in Germany, has a very well done full fairing conversion for the Speed Triple that turns the naked bike into a very muscular looking super bike. It’s evidently been available for a few years, but I never saw it until Doug sent me the link the other day.
The fairing is from a Triumph Daytona 675 along with quite a few other bits from the Triumph parts bin, there’s a Wilbers fork and rear shock conversion plus plenty of Rizoma pieces and it all fits together into a very factory looking finished product.
I think it looks good, and as easy as this would be to do, you have to wonder why Triumph hasn’t done this themselves.
Thanks for the tip, Doug!
