We’re pretty sure that if it’s straight-line grunt and power you are looking for, then a 750cc Triumph Metisse has got to be the way to go?

2015 runner-up in the Pre-65 British Classic Scrambles Championship and two-time ClassicMXRider.com Pre-68 Championship winner, Aaron Graves, arrived at a wet Marks Tey meeting on Easter Sunday and rolled out this lovely looking 750cc Triumph Metisse.

He’ll be using this in the British Championship at the longer, more power-hungry circuits, then “reverting” to his championship winning 500cc BSA (which he’s currently rebuilding) for the tight-and-twisties.

The bike was purchased the tail-end of last season, and has had a complete rebuild from the ground-up.

He kindly strapped on our GoPro to give us a taste of what it’s like aboard the machine. Enjoy.
