Mr. Martini Applies His Signature Cafe Treatment To A ’90s Triumph 900cc Triple

Having existed for some 25 years, Nicola Martini — better known as Mr. Martini – has gone from a small Italian customs outfit to an absolute institution amongst the two-wheeled community, with the Verona-based bike building operation now also including a full restaurant and cafe as well as a high-end gear and apparel division. But regardless of what side projects Nicola takes on, the core of the business remains focused on churning out world-class custom motorcycles, the latest of which is Mr. Martini’s “ARTE-RIA”.

The project began life as a 1996 Triumph Sprint 900, though it has since been rid of the factory seat, subframe, tank, and the entirety of its bodywork. In their place is a vintage fuel-cell, complemented via a half-fairing, larger two-piece lower fairing and belly-pan pieces, a bespoke chrome-plated subframe, and a classic cafe tail capped off with a three-piece split red leather seat — previously seen on Nicola’s iconic Scrambler Ducati builds. Other noteworthy additions include upgraded brakes with Galfer petal rotors fore and aft, a fully custom three-into-one exhaust from Mr. Martini’s go-to pipe supplier, Zard, an endurance-style external LED headlight, an analog Koso tach with an integrated digital speedo, and a custom gloss red and metallic gray livery.
