Speaking of "Triton'e" in my head at once there is the image of the motorcycle from the far '60s , when the British motor-fans created their motorcycles by crossing two different motorcycles. But sow day there are people who are confident that the Triton's concept of the 21st century are still relevant. And after meeting with the motorcycle on Britalmoto, I tend to agree with them. As the name implies the bike has a powerful engine Triumph, Norton placed in the frame, combined with the best components from current manufacturers.
Here is how Ivo Tschumi (Ivo Tschumi) of Britalmoto commented on the idea of creation, the situation today is similar to the 60-m. Triumph produces very reliable engines, which have a wide range of settings. On the other hand Norton releases Commando 961 – an excellent bike especially with regard to the chassis. And as one of my customers was unhappy with his Commando engine and thus was familiar with Triumph engine, he asked him to create a new Triton.
Ivo and his father Fritz upgraded Norton frame for installation of the engine from the Triumph Thruxton, whose power has been increased to 96-year-l / sec., With a torque of 104 Nm, due boring machine to 2017 cm3, the installation of new pistons and connecting rods Carillo. For a more powerful engine, new exhaust pipes with larger diameters and tips QD Exhausts were installed, and a new clutch EBR. Thus despite all the frames alterations they were able to maintain excellent road characteristics Norton.
Shock absorbers, front fork and wheel Brembo brakes were from Norton, the rear went from triumph to Nisi brakes, both mounted wheels size 17-inch five. Manual controls mixed on two motorcycles, light and mounting are made in the workshop, steps Free Spirits, a fuel tank Norton, but the seat was decided to produce a new stock as it was very cumbersome.
This original Triton looks much muscled his lungs counterparts from the 60's, but then on the other side, and the power he has another. On the creation of the «New Triton» in kastomayzer took 450 hours.
