First Look: Vicente Triumph Millenium 900

A French bike builder's take on the 1970's Triumph X75 classic

YOU'RE LOOKING at French bike builder Jean François Vicente's modern day take on Triumph's classic X-75 Hurricane triple from the 1970s.

Vicente's design uses hi-tech materials to form the distinctive one-piece body. The job was undertaken by an unnamed French company that specialise in developing parts for F1 cars.

The bike also features the distinctive triple exhaust on the right hand side, replicating Craig Vetter's original idea from the bike he designed in 1969.

The motor is a modern day water-cooled Triumph triple.

We think it's a fantastic job, which captures the spirit of the original machine in modern day format.
