Triumph Hellfire flat tracker

Triumph flat tracker
Triumph’s Street Triple 675 is light (167kg), powerful (107hp) and fast (141mph, or 225kph). So it’s surprising that it hasn’t been more of a target for tuners. Maybe it’s because the standard package is so ‘right’. But now the German Triumph dealer Motorcorner has created a very stylish flat tracker conversion, called the Hellfire. The mechanicals are wisely left untouched, but new thermoformed plastic body parts have transformed the look of the bike. New 17” wheels are fitted—shod with chunky dirt track tires—along with a stubby BOS Performance exhaust system, which should free up a little more power. The bike is being unveiled today at Motorcorner’s local racetrack, the Hockenheimring. With a projected price of £12,000 (US$17,300) the Hellfire isn’t cheap—but it sure looks like a lot of fun. Check the video on the Bike EXIF YouTube channel to see more. [Thanks to Volker Karwath for the tip. Via Austrian site 1000ps.]

    Anyone have any info on the display being used on this bike?

  • Emmet

    that video had no action in it, let’s see it around a dirt track! Also, why a double seat if there’s no passenger footpegs??

  • dobbs

    I’m a little tired of these kinds of builds. It’s a beautiful bike, without a doubt, but with all the claims of it being a flat-tracker, the least they could do is run it around a 1/2 mile track and get it sideways. Otherwise it’s just a flat-track paintjob.

    Also, Emmet has a good point about the double seat.

  • kevin tweedy

    I like the double seat .. it finishes off the ass end in a interesting way its a different approach.

    i do agree these flat track paint job bikes are getting a little over done and probably hold no ground on an actual flat track but i have to admit I would like to ride this thing to work….. its very easy on the eyes

  • esskay

    Damn! who makes those sexy wheels! I’ve never seen spokes attached like that before

  • Emmet

    how is that double seat ‘interesting’? It looks like the stock seat!! To me, it seems much lazier a build than the article builds it up to be. I’ll bet the suspension is unaltered and it would be a horror to ride on the dirt. Reminds me of Gregg’s Customs R1 street tracker, but at least that build involved a high degree of fabrication: http://thekneeslider.com/archives/2009/09/02/yamaha-r1-street-tracker-from-greggs-customs/

    i don’t like the new wave of function-follows-form projects hitting motorcycle blog frontpages lately.

    yeaaaaaah!!!
    the display!!!!!

    it’s just great!

    ;)

    Mardo, if u find something about it… let us know!!

  • PeteP

    I have a couple of projects just crying out for that display. If anyone finds it, please post up!

    This bike looks alot more comfortable than the stock version. The high and wide Flat Track bars along with the long seat give the rider more options than the stock Boy Racer version. The adventure tires give more versitility for all riding surfaces, many of us actaully ride on gravel roads and fire trails on our bikes, not just flat asphalt. Great Bike!!

  • Carbon-arc

    Do want.

    The video is very disappointing, as it would have been good to see this in action. Would love to use this for green lane-ing up in the hills

    The sex. Who cares if it actually has any flat track chops? How many owners are going to ride their bike in the dirt? Very, very few, and transforming it into true flat tracker would make it a pretty crappy street bike. Like the XR1200, it’s all about the aesthetic. The Street III is already a badass bike, this kit gives it seriously aggressive looks to match the performance..

    Love it, where can i get one from. Don’t want to go flat tracking and handy to have room for the mrs on the back, ideal.

  • Acameron

    Does anyone know where I can get some dirt track tires like these? I want to put a set on my Speed Triple…. need some fat 17″ ones. Tahnkss
