She may be slow but she's at least pretty: Triumph Thruxton.

"The Thruxton 900 - a café racer with an obvious race heritage (just check the ground clearance), power is made by the responsive 865cc parallel twin engine. This is a bike that really involves the rider. The handling has plenty of feel with damping tuned for a sportier ride and pre-load adjustable front and rear suspension. Aluminium rims, grippy tyres and floating front discs are just the cocoa powder sprinkled on the mocca.
Thruxton 900. True original. Modern icon.
The Thruxton is such a faithful version of those often home-built, sixties racers - with adjustable front and rear suspension, aluminium rims and floating front disc.
With its perfectly proportioned, evocative silhouette the Thruxton is a truly beautiful machine. It captures the very essence of the café racer look – the short-style front mudguard, rakish clip-on handlebars, distinctive seat hump and Spartan elegance – and matches it to exhilarating, fluid performance. Its 865cc air-cooled twin cylinder power plant is the most powerful of Triumph’s twin-cylinder line up. Wrapping the motor is a precisely crafted chassis that inspires confidence; its harder edge delivering real sporting character. The sturdy, preload adjustable 41mm telescopic forks and twin rear shocks give superb suspension action and compliance. A fully floating 320mm front disc and twin-piston brake caliper provide powerful, but sensitive, braking performance.

The Triumph Thruxton. Classic style of the sixties mixed seamlessly with a modern attitude."
We can't forget the Scrambler..

Or the Bonnie can we?
