Anyone who takes a Triumph modern classic for a test ride between February 7 and April 30, 2018, will have the chance to win one of these bikes.
Triumph has joined forces with British artist D*Face to create three art-inspired custom modern classics, under the banner of the ‘Spirit of 59’.
As per the British motorcycle maker, the motivation behind such a move dates back to the year 1959, which marked the beginning of a cultural explosion and the birth of a new attitude that inspired a revolution in music, art and culture – from rock ’n’ roll to Andy Warhol.
A long-standing Triumph fan and owner, D*Face fuses street art, pop art and punk in a guerilla creative style, selling his art the world over. Working closely with the Triumph team at their factory headquarters in Hinckley, he has customised three unique bikes inspired by the Spirit of 59 – Bonneville Bobber, Bonneville T120 and Thruxton R, each one a model from Triumph’s modern classics range.
D*Face has painted the fuel tanks by hand and configured each bike individually using custom Triumph accessories. The hand-painted designs are bespoke and celebrate the Spirit of ’59 through D*Face’s original style. Anyone who takes a Triumph modern classic for a test ride between February 7 and April 30 will be eligible to win one of these unique bikes.
Speaking on the collaboration, Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said, ‘We are extremely happy to celebrate the Spirit of 59 theme at Triumph Motorcycles. This is an amazing way to showcase what the modern classic range of motorcycles is all about. The iconic ’59 Triumph Bonneville encapsulated this spirit and passion for life, inspiring legions of riders from movie stars to café racers and a whole motorcycle movement.’
