Italian built Triumph Scrambler special in production

Milan based firm TPR have launched their first production special, this stunning Urban Scrambler. Based around the Triumph 800cc twin cylinder engine and Bonneville chassis the bike takes its inspiration from scramblers of the 50’s and 60’s. The hi-level exhausts that exit both sides of the bike, polished number boards and detailed finish set the bike apart from the hundreds of other...

Why?

£12,000 ? for what? an impractical a**e burner exhaust, a bit of black paint, an awful seat and that will be £5,000 more than a standard one please..! Have a look at the Norman Hyde catalogue (no connection with me) or some of the many "dealer specials". In another magazine, I have been following a series called "Motorcycles and how to damage them" - looks like someone took it seriously!

Knees

At leat your knees would never be cold again :oP but £12K is a *stoopid* amount of cash for something not that special but I guess these guys are looking at the Deus machines based on the SK400/Thruxton/Bonnie and using that as a benchmark??

How Much!

Not for me I'm afraid, aren't special editions supposed to look better than the standard? not here clearly, Bobthecats right, a few too many 'light ales' the night before methinks -  this is only what people who hadn't noticed the red plug leads, carb tops, and general coolness of the bike would say....



Eh eh eh... the perfect crime

Not just a tarted up scrambler

I agree that the bike is expensive but that's more to do with the stength of the Euro than the quality of the build. Many of the parts are handmade which makes it unique compared to the scores of Scrambler 'specials' out there fitted with cheap, mass produced aftermarket bits. Even if you don't like the style you can still appreciate the detail and craft.

Also, I missed out the fact that the buider Pietro Figini has also tweaked the engine to produce an extra 8hp. Not earth shattering but you'll be able to feel the difference over stock.

Ped.

After reading your reply I spent a few minutes looking more closely at the pictures - Kinda feel a bit daft now as on reflection I quite like it. Although I could edit my previous comment so nobody will know and cover my tracks....
