April 1st, 2019: Triumph In The News
“It’ll eat the others for breakfast before picking up the front wheel and disappearing off into the distance to find the rockiest, muddiest, sludgiest trails around.” When it comes to obsession, The Motorcycle Obsession has it bad for the dynamic new Triumph Scrambler 1200. “An awesome chassis, a brilliant engine, fun in the twisties, proper off-road ability, a fantastic sound track and loads of tech is what I care about, and that’s what both Scrambler 1200s offer,” they declare. “Fun? Yes. Huge, genuine, whooping and hollering amounts of fun!”
Expedition Portal takes an up-close look at the venerable Triumph Tiger 800 XCA, a bike they claim is suited for any type of on-road or off-road adventure you can throw at it. “I want a motorcycle that can take me around the globe, and the 800 XCA would make the short list,” they say. “The 21-inch front wheel rolls over obstacles like a dirt bike, complemented by the nearly 9 inches of suspension travel. The tuning of this new WP suspension package cannot be understated, providing confidence to the rider on everything from fast, corrugated roads to ruts, rocks, and ledges.”
Nothing draws a crowd like a motorcycle sidecar. Now pair it with one of the most finely detailed Triumph customs on the planet, step back, and take it all in. Bike EXIF brings us this drop-dead gorgeous custom 2009 Triumph Scrambler with matching sidecar by Australian builders Purpose Built Moto. Highlights include polished silver and brass accents throughout, including subtle raised brass striping to perfectly accentuate the striking deep white paint scheme. A new Thruxton front cowl brings a sporty café racer look while the rich coffee brown custom leather gives it vintage appeal.
