This Triumph Bonneville is a dark beauty oozing retro charm
Motorcycle customisation is not just about tweaking the powertrains for better power and torque output and churning out better performance. It's about making the machine stand out in the crowd with a unique design and visual appearance as well. Also, the motorcycle customisation studios often focus on retro motorcycles due to their charming appeal.
Triumph Bonneville Type 20 is one such custom motorcycle created by the UK-based custom shop Auto Fabrica. Based on a bone stock 2008 Triumph Bonneville, this custom motorcycle looks like the incarnation of darkness on two wheels in a stealthy scrambler guise. The all-black motif not only gives it a distinctive appearance but an overall visual appeal as well.
