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.
