Being essentially derived from the original Daytona 955, it is technically considered a Street fighter. The Speed triple is not a thoroughbred "cafe-racer" in the traditional sense as it is not derived from a "standard" motorcycle. Traditional cafe-racers are also air cooled as well.

With Cafe'esque body work it would be considered a Cafe-Fighter. A street fighter, with cafe racer styling. In particular, the low bars/clipons, short aerodynamic rounded tail, single fared or non fared headlight, etc.

The Stock Speed triple has Dirt bars, sport bike tail, modern style dual headlights, etc.

My naked 748 has a single triumph 7" headlight, and narrowed Cafe style tail, clipons, etc. As it's derived from a modern sport bike it is still considered to be a fighter though. Hence the Cafe-fighter terminology.



On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Cafe-fighter term has also been applied to older "Standard" style bikes that have been modified with late model sport bike USD forks and rear monoshock suspension.

It's a conglomeration of two separate styles and era's of bike, taking ques from both to create a completely unique style unto itself.

Example:


Not a Fighter...but not a cafe-racer either. It's a little bit of both.

I second DanBuc. My S3 is a modern take on the cafe approach clipons, solo tail etc. I Hope it's close enough for you all. I wanted that marvelous engine mixed with modern and retro styling. Next step will most likely be an LSL single headlight. After that a custom fiberglass rear cowl may be in the works





On a side note:
DanBuc let's do a photoshoot this weekend of both bikes. I'm near Wayne NJ.

The fog was so thick you couldn't see the weather lol.

It wasn't that bad out really, until my clutch decided to come apart on me. Props to Sean for doing me a solid and snagging some tools from his place. Tried everything we could till I found the big nut that holds my clutch center hub in place had backed out. I ended up having to call my buddy with his pickup truck to rescue me.


Was nice that several other bikers all stopped to ask if I was ok or needed help. Some even offered some tools if they could help. Even some guy in a camry pulled over and asked if he could help out.
Made standing in the damp cold all that much more bearable haha.
