While we love custom motorcycles, there are a few bikes out there that don’t really need any alteration, as they’re plenty impressive off the factory floor. MV Agusta’s 128HP F3 675 superbike is one such offering. But that didn’t stop Tricana from taking the bike to task and transforming this track titan into the drop-dead gorgeous cafe racer you see before you.
Once a 2019 MV Agusta F3 675, the newly-dubbed ‘La Rouge’ is, simply put, a thing of beauty. Originally intended to be a simple cafe racer build for a customer, the folks at Tricana decided they could do so much more than just clip on some new handlebars and give it a new paint job. As such, they replaced the factory fairing, tail, and subframe for new bespoke ones; modified and shortened the tank; suspended the tail; and swapped in a bevy of other upgrades — including Brembo brake calipers; an Ohlins steering damper; and an I2M Chrome Lite fully-featured, GPS-equipped, full-color cockpit display. It’s clear that the spirit of the original bike is still intact, but this new one is a vast, gorgeous, all-around impressive improvement.
