New 123bhp Speed Triple rival

Dutch chassis guru Nico Bakker has built a sexy rival to Triumph’s Speed Triple using the brilliant engine from Suzuki’s TL1000R V-twin.

Misleading Title

It's a one-off, not a rival.

Who'd be stupid enough to buy it instead of the S3?

26,000 quid!! the man must be on P" or something. It looks terrible and reminds me of the Hinckley Trident it had a nickname of the Ape.

Sorry, but in what area is this a rival to the ST? The engine's are different configurations, the frame and swing arm are poles apart, the BHP figures are at odds and don't start me on the price! Oh, hold on a minute. They do both have two wheels. Sorry. My mistake. Spot on headline boys.
