Dear Triumph: Build this!

six-monkees-daytona-1050-530x384This comes to me via the Kneeslider. It’s a Triumph Speed Triple, modified by a German outfit called Six Monkeys. Yes, that’s a Daytona 675 fairing. It’s also got some other tricked out bits.

It’s also a very cool Speed Triple conversion, and I’d bet it’s fun as hell to ride.

The question I have is, why isn’t Triumph building one of these. I mean, the Daytona is a nice Supersport, but a fully faired…let’s call it a Daytona 1050…would be a sharp motorcycle.

And, after all, some of prefer our bikes to have a fairing and a bit of wind protection.
