SPECIALS OF THE MONTH
Tasty TRX850, mouth-watering GSX-R750 and a mint Z1100R from way back when
Swede Peder Rosburg transformed his TRX850 into this much sharper beast, then christened it the ‘MT02’. The frame’s been stripped of unused lugs, forks are Öhlins from an RSV Aprilia (as is the swingarm), yokes are Bimota, steering stem is CBX1000. The seat unit is a highly modified Fireblade part. For extra punch the motor’s been through the workshop of RG Engineering who’ve fitted bigger valves for 39mm flatslides, and balanced the crank.
That’s a 20bhp hike at 8500rpm.
Sounds like a hoot.
A very tidy TRX, with a bit of extra heft too
