Took 2 months to execute.
Triumph Motorcycles celebrated their first year in India at the India Bike Week 2015 with customers who had ridden down from all parts of the country.
Among the festivities, Triumph India showcased a special Bonneville, custom made by Rajputana Custom Motorcycles specially for IBW 2015.
The classic Bonneville has been completely redesigned to resemble Triumph’s very own Scrambler, which is currently not available in India. The seat and the high-mounted exhaust (lifted from a original 2006 Triumph Scrambler) is a direct inspiration of the original motorcycle.
The front end of the custom made Bonneville Scrambler featured an aggressively styled twin projector headlamp unit with a high set mudguard positioned right under the headlight assembly. The small stock wheels were replaced by off-road wheels and tyres to increase the machine’s ground clearance and give it better off-road capabilities.
To further enhance the off-road stance, the motorcycle had been given a motocross-styled handlebar, off-road grips, scrambler levers and foot pegs.
It took Jaipur based Rajputana Customs took two months of painstaking efforts to create this radical looking machine, from which, Triumph hopes that customers get new ideas to customise their machines.
