LSL Clubman T 860R

LSL Clubman T860R - Triumph Thruxton cafe racer
The German tuner LSL-Motorradtechnik is developing a signature look for its products, making them immediately identifiable regardless of the base bike. The latest cafe racer to roll out of the Krefeld factory is the T 860R, based on the Triumph Thruxton. Like last year’s W 740R, the T 860R is finished in anthracite gray—right down to the springs on the rear shocks—with a red logo on the tank, a low profile dual seat, and low-key detailing elsewhere. Engine torque is boosted by 16Nm (to 88Nm) thanks to higher compression, a modified airbox and cams, and a Remus slip-on muffler. Other improvements include an LSL triple tree, new wheels, Nissin brakes and clip-on bars. It’s the sort of motorcycle Triumph itself could and should build, rather than the bland Thunderbird cruiser.
