In the world of motorcycle customization, one can truly say, “your bike, your marriage.” And what if that marriage includes a reggae-inspired paint job? Well, that’s precisely what one motorcycle enthusiast requested, and Vietnam’s MFix Workshop brought this unique vision to life on a Triumph Street Twin.
This Triumph Street Twin may exude an “irie” vibe with its reggae-themed design, but don’t be fooled – it packs a punch when it comes to performance. The owner of this custom motorcycle isn’t just a reggae music fan; he’s also an avid dirt bike rider. This custom build combines both worlds, offering a striking appearance and a thrilling ride.
The customization journey began with a focus on the electronics. The client wanted a comprehensive suite of Motogadget electronics with smartphone integration, and that’s where MFix Workshop started. They removed the bike’s original wiring loom and replaced it with a Bluetooth-enabled Motogadget mo.unit controller. They also installed a lightweight Lithium-ion battery and a special box from Peak-Mod that allows for aftermarket speedometer use.
All these components fit neatly under the seat and are secured with red, yellow, and green cable ties. Digging deeper into the bike’s performance, MFix upgraded the engine with a new camshaft from TEC, a Dynojet Power Commander 6 ECU, heavy-duty EBS clutch plates, and other performance-enhancing modifications. They also removed the Street Twin’s emissions sensors to enhance its breathing.
The suspension and running gear also received a complete overhaul. MFix Workshop equipped the bike with adjustable Öhlins FG 621 forks in the front, along with CNC-machined yokes and a Matris steering damper. At the rear, they added an aluminum swingarm from a Triumph Thruxton R, paired with adjustable K-Tech Razor shocks.
This upgraded suspension not only enhances performance but also gives the Street Twin a more respectable ride height. The motorcycle now rides on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels from Kineo, wrapped in Metzeler Tourance tires, offering excellent street grip with a hint of gravel capability. Brembo Serie Oro brake calipers ensure reliable stopping power, and a Triumph Scrambler 1200 side stand accommodates the increased ground clearance.
In terms of bodywork, MFix Workshop shortened the Street Twin’s subframe and added a handcrafted composite flat track tail section. Topped with a leather seat, this tail section perfectly complements the Triumph’s stock fuel tank.
The front end features a powerful LED headlight and an enduro-style cowl from Rigid, mounted above a custom split mudguard design and flat track-style fork protectors. Towards the rear, you’ll find a bespoke MFix Performance radiator and an Evotech skid plate. Custom aluminum side panels complete the look.
MFix Workshop’s task was to turn this Triumph Street Twin into a true reflection of the client’s vision. Beyond the Rastafari-inspired design, the owner, who is a fan of the classic Yamaha SR400, wanted special engine badges that pay homage to it. These badges read ‘SR900’ and ‘SR400/500,’ referencing the Street Twin’s 900 cc engine. The lime green Acerbis heat shield attached to the robust two-into-one Zard exhaust system was another client-specified detail.
