TRIUMPH RAFALE / STO-001

A TRIUMPH TRIDENT CALLED RAFALE

Rafale means ‘gust of wind’ in French and is the driving metaphor of the body and soul of this stunning café racer, based on a 1975 Triumph Trident Triple.

The work carried out on this Triumph Trident is pays homage to classic racing and artisanal metal work, typical of the golden age of traditional coachbuilding.

The project was outlined from the very beginning to be a light, fast and sophisticated motorcycle with a narrow bodywork.

The sculptural form is inspired by aeronautical and pre-war industrial design.
