While the idea of belting down a freeway at a ton and a half on a big bore Cafe Racer sounds like a blast, it’s not the sort of practice most of us often get the chance to do. In fact it’s probably illegal where many of you live making it an even less frequent exercise. In big cities small capacity motorcycles rule the streets and although many may argue “There’s no point making a Cafe Racer out of a 250cc bike!”, I beg to differ. Big bikes get the blood pumping but small bikes make you smile. I am lucky enough to have one of each and I have to say my little 200cc thumper is the best fix for Monday morning blues.
It’s quick off the line, splits through busy traffic without knocking a single mirror and handles like it’s on rails. So when a bike like this latest build from Tricana in Portugal appears in my inbox I’m all smiles.
