Triumph Unveils The Venom. A Custom Bonneville T100.

triumphindiatriumphbisLast Friday, Triumph unveiled an in-house created custom Bonneville to support the launch of a new adventure video game named “Metal Gear Solid: Phamtom Pain” And of course, it is inspired by the video main character, “The Snake”.

The motorcycle will debut at the MCM London Comic Con, May 22- 24, 2015 and then will tour a number of events throughout the year. The Venom is stripped to the bare essentials (no mirrors, no speedo, no tacho, mudguard, etc), features heavy duty fork spring, slash cut pipes, off-road pegs, sport levers, a yellowed-out JVB Rumbler headlight, a custom seat in neoprene and carbon kevlar inspired by the video The Snake’s iconic combat wear, etc.

    ….. once again begging the question ;

    How many bikes can the builders/manufactures Scramble before Hipster Scrambler wanna be’s finally go out of fashion ?

    My wishful thinking answer being …. not many more I hope !

    Eeesh ! Enough already !!!

    Desert Sleds, scramblers what ever you want to call them they have never gone out of fashion.
    When the American market demanded those bike and the P11 and TT100 were built they made a statement.
    If the younger generation likes them, hell all I say is I’m wrapped that good taste goes down through the generations.

    Cool Motor Sickle

    ” …… they have never gone out of fashion ”

    Oh really ? And on what planet might that be on James ? Seems to me up until about oh … 3-4 years ago the only ( genuine ) Scramblers around were the classic originals showing up at the vintage bike shows that were supplanted by Enduros and Motocross bikes putting an end …. temporarily at least to Scramblers etc .. which in their day were a legitimate answer to a valid demand …. now succumbing to the level of trendy Wendy Hipster Fashionista status symbols that spend more time at Cafes etc than on the road and hardly if ever get so much as a speck of dirt in between those pretentious overkill knobbies they wear .

    And no Woody’s .. its not a movie bike . Its a freaking video game bike . Case closed . Nuff said !

    53 year year Green Beret with PTSD here. I’m not sure I’d go so far as to call myself a “Trendy Wendy Hipster Fashionista” but I’m fairly sure you wouldn’t. Who’s to decide what’s right and what’s not? The thing that brings us together is our love of things two wheeled.
    Yeah, I’ve mad some pointed observations on here a time or two, but I don’t try to decide what you should like or berate you because your tastes differ from my own.
    Same guys who want to outlaw knobbies on certain bikes, or ridicule you for only being able to get to the next bar on your small gas tank (wasn’t that the point of the original cafe bikes, to haul ass from one bar to the next?) are the ones lamenting the fact nothing ever changes, the industry is stagnated, blah, blah, blah…

    I’d ride the shit out the above bike, just as I would’ve ridden any one of the little 125’s I saw in Honduras last week.This even though thirty years ago I made the claim I’d never ride anything smaller than an 1100cc four cylinder metric.

    So relax, if one bike ain’t your thing, maybe the next day’s offering will be.

    At a time when there were plenty of Fire Roads in Nor Cal still open to the public……
    virtually every OEM had at least one high-pipe, dirt-bar “Street Scrambler” in their brochure.
    Some even had a skid plate (not that it was needed on a gravel road).

    That’s how many of us learned to slide a bike… that is, learned how to “Ride,” not just “Drive” from bar to bar.
    And for that purpose they (Street Scramblers) worked just fine….. thank you very much.

    @Woody’s, was that a Pee Wee’s Big Adventure reference? Well played, take the rest of the day off. You deserve it.

    Triumph Desert Sleds were good enough for McQueen, Ekins and the like, not everyone wants a ring a ding two stroke Moto cross bike for the desert or fire trails.

    Does T J stand for Two Joints ? maybe you should cut back or switch to some valium and chill bro .

    I had lots of friends with high pipe combat Nortons and stripped Bonnies and the Triumph scrambler has been out for years. They never went away maybe you don’t ride enough or the fog of life blinded your vision !!

    Nuff Said …lol that is sooo funny
