The Triumph Bonneville seems to be a favourite donor bike for a custom project and this is one cool Triumph Scrambler.
Even bolting on off-the-shelf parts can turn them into very cool machines; not that they are uncool in stock form. TeamMoto has bolted on an array of genuine and aftermarket bits and pieces to a current model Triumph Scrambler and showed it to an admiring crowd at the recent Laverda Concours in Brisbane.
Chief among the changes are the knobby Mita E09 80-20 tyres.
Together with the motocross handlebars, a bash plate and Gazi twin shocks that lift the bike and provide better clearance, the bike looks sets for some forest tracks.
I’ve ridden a Scrambler with Gazi shocks and they really do give it a plusher ride over the rocks. They are adjustable for height, rebound, compression and dampening.
However, for more serious off-roading, it might pay to relocate the rear brake caliper from under the disc to the top.
But if it’s street-smart cred you want, this Scrambler has it in abundance with a short and low Zard 2-1 low exhaust, custom side covers, Triumph performance levers, Triumph front brake reservoir, headlight grille and tail eliminator.
TeamMoto is selling the Triumph Scrambler for $18,490 with 12 months rego. Give TeamMoto marketing officer Rosie Lalonde a call on 3380 2247.
