If you’ve been lusting after the gorgeous T120 Thruxton, but didn’t feel comfortable with the size, power or price, salvation is here – and it’s called the Street Cup. Essentially a Street Twin, the Cup gets a handful of mods to transform it from modern classic roadster, to cheeky café racer. It really works in the metal, bridging the gap between the T120 and smaller offerings – like Guzzi’s V7 Racer.
The power beneath the throne is the same 900cc ‘High Torque’ Bonneville engine found throughout the range, but the Cup gets its own shorter and lighter twin satin black and stainless steel upswept silencers.
