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.
