Tweaked Triumph: Angel Lussiana’s Speed Triple

Stock Speed Triple not good enough for you? Take this, then!

According to a report on Caradisiac, specials builder Angel Lussiana has been at it again, and here we have the latest piece of work from his garage – a heavily modified Speed Triple. The bike retains the original chassis and suspension, but the exhaust system is all new, the radiator has been taken from a Ducati 916 and then worked upon, and the wheels seem to have come off an MV Agusta F4.

The bike’s digital dashboard integrates a large number of functions, the bodywork and front fender have been restyled and bike will only seat one person. What do we think about the bike? Hmmm… to be very honest, the Lussiana Speed Triple looks a bit poncy to us. We think the original, stock bike is more ‘honest,’ which is why we’d rather have one of those.
