Triumph Venom

The second one off model presented by Triumph is the Venom and was unveiled at Comic-Con London with the launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain video game. The Triumph Venom is also based on good old Bonnie. The Venom comes in a military green outfit and resembles a bit with the Steve McQueen’s motorcycle from the ,,Great Escape”. To keep the bike simple, mirrors and speedometer are absent. The motorcycle was built to resemble with the T100 that is ridden by the character Snake in the video game. Statement to this, saddlebags are made to look like Snake’s uniform. On the back of the bike an rugged ammo rack can be found. The Continental TKC80 tires give the Venom an all-rounder feel. Foot-pegs are borrowed from the Tiger!
