Ernie Vigil Finishes 5th at Mexican 1000 Rally Riding a Triumph Scrambler 1200

Not Your Typical Bike for the Race I don’t cover many motorcycle competitions, but this story is too good not to share. Apparently, Ernie Vigil took fifth out of 13 contestants at the Mexican 1000 Rally on a Triumph Scrambler 1200. The Triumph Scrambler isn’t the first bike I or many others would have chosen. Most riders opted for dirt bikes with about half the displacement. The factory racer completed the five-day, 1,347-mile rally in 25 hours and 37 minutes, according to That’...

Triumph Unveils the Rocket 3 TFC

The Company Calls It ‘The Ultimate Motorcycle’ Triumph’s Rocket 3 is something that excites the hell out of me. I like the idea of a big muscle cruiser, especially a special limited-edition one like the TFC that Triumph has built. The company recently posted a video of the bike, unveiling its new beauty flexing in a dark room. It looks awesome.  The bike has all kinds of carbon fiber on it, special LED lights, cast aluminum wheels, and a unique and modern looking instrument cluster that’s minim...

LEFT AND FAST – Triumph Bonneville Super Hooligan

Inspiration can come at any time. But when you’re thinking of building a Super Hooligan flat tracker, there’s probably no better place to be than at a Hooligan race. Last October, flat track racing-obsessed rider Paul Hartman was watching the RSD Super Hooligans Moto Beach Classic from the side lines, dreaming up his next build. “I had just wrecked my Harley race bike the weekend before at a hill climb event,” says Paul. “I knew I would be building a new bike over the winter, but wasn’t quite ...

Could Triumph Be Working On an Electric Trident?

The Resurgence of an Icon as an Electric The Triumph Trident was a high-performance model that helped define the company during the late ’60s and early ’70s. The bike is well-loved by those that remember it. Now it seems there could be a new Trident on its way. According to MoreBikes, there’s a rumor going around of Triumph working on a new Trident, and it’s powered by electricity. This could be awesome. Granted, the rumor from MoreBikes is that there’s a patent for the design floating around o...

Listen to the Triumph Daytona 765 Sing

A Desperate and Angry Howl The new Triumph Daytona 765 is coming. The bike has been spotted before, and now we come across a video of the machine on a dyno testing. The lucky guy who gets to do the testing looks all to calm as the beast below him screams on the dyno. It’s a beautiful howl that I don’t think I could ever get sick of. It’s almost painful to watch this bike tested like this. It looks out of place. It should be on a racetrack or on a twisty canyon road pushing the limits. I guess a...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 3 February, 2019

We’re back with an extremely oddball selection: possibly the world’s ugliest MV Agusta, a Yamaha XSR700 homage to Claude Fior, a gorgeous Honda CB400 Super Four cafe racer and an absolutely monstrous BMW R1150R scrambler.

PIPEBURN REVIEW: Triumph’s 2019 Scrambler 1200 XE

Written by Mark Hawwa “THIS IS NOT A SCRAMBLER!” is what I shout to myself on repeat as I hit the first few corners of the famous Great Ocean Road in Australia’s south-east. Not a car in sight, my right wrist is only just warming up. Luckily, my hands are already comfortable thanks to the bike’s heated grips. From corner to corner, the 2019 Triumph Scrambler XE consistently proves that it was not only made to conquer the dirt, but the bitumen too. The gold forks mean that this is the serio...

Review: The 2019 Triumph Speed Twin

Most manufacturers have at least a couple of retro-styled motorcycles on sale. But Triumph has more skin in that game than anyone else: Hinckley’s modern classics outnumber their other models by a significant margin. The new Speed Twin adds yet another name to the roster. So is the range too crowded now, or is the Speed Twin different enough to be significant? I headed to the usually sunny Mediterranean island of Mallorca to find out. The Speed Twin gets its name from the groundbreaking pa...

I SCRAM LEGEND. FCR Original’s McQueen Triumph Scrambler Homage

Written by Andrew Jones For all their marketing bucks, there’s one thing the motorcycle manufacturers’ money will never be able to buy. It’s the same stuff that Burt Monroe, Giacomo Agostini and Rollie Free have in spades; authenticity. Often created by random acts of insanity and then distilled by history, it’s a licence to print money for brands when their planets align and they find themselves part of it. For Triumph, those planets mostly revolve around Steve McQueen’s star. His bike build...

HIGHWAY TO HELL YES. Mandrill’s ‘Power Street’ T100 Triumph Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson It is home to the 21st century’s most vibrant and powerful economy, with millions of high-tech products created there every single day. Yet China is also a land with a rich history, a remarkable culture many millennia old and Confucianism that has spread great wisdom to the world; so where else would you expect to find a bike builder that likes to take modern retro machines and give them a futuristic touch!

AUTEUR MOTO. FCR Original’s ‘Super 8’ Triumph T100 Roadster

Written by Marlon Slack FCR Original are a mainstay of the custom motorcycle scene. Hell, they’re probably the premiere builder in France. Just look at their past work – their wide variety of customs has had them win show awards and race events around the world. So it’s no surprise that when one half of Synapson, an electronic music group, was looking for a new ride he approached FCR. And what he got was this – a beautiful Triumph T100 inspired by their latest album, dubbed ‘Super 8’. Alri...

My Triumph Obsession, Part III: Why you can never have enough spare parts

The lower section of the left-front fender on my 1955 TR2 needs to be replaced, but with six spare left-side front fenders on hand, it will allow that damaged fender to be repaired with authentic Triumph body metal for a more genuine repair. Several spare doors, four trunk lids, and four hoods are all part of my cherished stash. The red Herald is a 1960 model; yes, it runs! Photos by author. When it comes to owning old British sports cars, or any car that wasn’t produced in huge numbers, you ca...

The supercharged Thruxton leading the Sultans of Sprint

You’d imagine that a company called Mellow builds gentle retro roadsters, or laidback cruisers for old-timers. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. The German workshop Mellow builds ‘machines to escape from madness’—and they have a particular affinity for drag bikes. Last year, they won the Sultans of Sprint series with their ‘Frankenstein’ Ducati. And this year, they’re back with an even more outrageous racer—a supercharged Triumph Thruxton R called ‘Phantom Blaze.’ Mellow are bas...

OREGONIAN WOOD. Red Clouds’ ‘Rubber Soul’ Triumph Bonneville Desert Sled

Written by Marlon Slack Red Clouds Collective may sound like an Eastern European anarchist group, but they actually make waxed canvas and leather goods out of their workshop in South East Portland, Oregon. And while their days are filled with stitching and designing gorgeous products for their store by night they flip the sign to ‘closed’ at the front door and build motorcycles. Most of them are old British and Japanese enduros, but this time they’ve tackled a more modern offering – a 2006 Tr...

Krugger hardtails the Triumph Bonneville Bobber

Fred ‘Krugger’ Bertrand has a specialty: winning world championships. He’s taken home the Big One from the AMD show twice so far, and picked up multiple other awards too. The Belgian wizard is the master of the grand slam, pull-out-all-the-stops build, without resorting to peanut tanks or 30” front wheels. But what happens when Krugger turns his hand to a manufacturer commission—with strict orders not to apply the grinder to the frame, or loosen the engine bolts? This hardtail Bobber is the a...
