TRIUMPH UNVEILS ‘VENOM’ CUSTOM BONNEVILLE
BASED ON KONAM'S METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN
A new custom Triumph Bonneville has been unveiled to celebrate the launch of Konami’s forthcoming new computer game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Triumph Motorcycles, have already featured in the games Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
Based on the Triumph Bonneville T100 ridden by Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Venom is an in-house custom build created by the Triumph team. It features game-originated graphics and the Diamond Dogs logo.
Mirrors, speedo and rev counter have been stripped off and from there on in this stock T100 Bonneville has evolved into a hot rod.
Off-road duties are handled with custom rims fitted with dirt-focused rubber in the form of Continental TKC80s. The stock saddle has been cut down and refinished in Sneaking Suit neoprene and carbon Kevlar leather.
A yellowed-out JVB Rumbler headlight and external heavy duty fork springs give an aggressive dimension to the front end, a profile exaggerated by the lack of front mudguard. At the rearit features a cut-down guard and exclamation mark tail-light. Colour matched callipers and cam cover are stand-out details, along with custom slash-cut exhausts.
The bike is finished off with a stencilled matte black Diamond Dogs livery.
The VTB:1/Venom Triumph Bonneville debuted at the MCM London Comic Con, May 22-24, and is touring a number of events throughout the year if you would like to catch a glimpse of it.
