As far as interesting concepts and customizations go, this one by Smoked Garage definitely leans toward the top of our list. Designed with the future in mind, this customization is definitely a sight to behold and we offer our salute to Smoked Garage. Introducing the Triumph Ghost.
This build was inspired by the Lotus C-01 Motorcycle Concept, and one can definitely see some similarity. Although, the Ghost has achieved a level of futuristic elegance that can’t be found anywhere else.
Built by Australian-based moto-workshop, Smoked Garage, the Ghost is based on a 2005 Triumph Speed Triple. It was completely stripped down to the bare essentials, and then rebuilt into the beauty that we have today. The Ghost also features a bespoke cooling system, symmetrical frame geometry, and a full aluminum body. Not to mention that it houses a 1050cc 4-stroke engine with Brembo brakes. It also has impressive torque at 105Nm at 5100 rpm.
In addition to this, the Ghost features a new airbox and radiator, while the front end was customized with a bespoke headlamp, and customized fork sleeves to the front end. The outer of the bike was constructed out of five pieces of solid aluminum that was joined together with flush mounted bolts. This makes it exceptionally light, and gives it a definite spaceship-like look. The scoops have also been improved for greater air intake, while the exhaust mounting was redesigned to keep temperatures down.
Furthermore, the Ghost has been outfitted with an integrated LED taillight, and a minimalistic paint job to finish off its unique look.
