“M, It’s Bond. James Bond. Get The Bike Ready”
This marks the first time that the British character will be seen on a British bike
Considering that James Bonds’ go-to car is usually an Aston Martin, you’d think he’s quite a patriotic chap. Which makes it even more surprising that he’s never been seen on a British motorcycle. That’s about to change in the franchise’s upcoming 25th film, No Time To Die, where the star Daniel Craig will be seen on the soon-to-be-launched Triumph Tiger 900 and the Scrambler 1200 XE. To commemorate the occasion, the Brit brand is rolling out the Scrambler 1200 Bond Edition, and boy oh boy does it fit the occasion.
He may be one of the ‘good guys’ but Bond’s bike looks absolutely villainous. It’s finished in sinister jet black all the way down to the fork legs, making all the metallic contrasting elements really pop. Whether it’s the fuel tank with its exquisite brushed metal inserts and loud-and-proud Triumph logo or the menacing scrambler-style exhaust system from Arrow complete with carbon-fibre end caps and a Bond-themed heat shield, everything on this bike looks eerily beautiful and exudes craftsmanship of the absolute highest order.
If you’re already sold on the design and you want one, you’re out of luck because Triumph will be rolling out only 250 of these beauties and it’s highly unlikely that any of them will be assigned for India. Still, no harm in looking, right?
We could go on and on about the magnificently embroidered leather seat complete with 007 branding or the numbered handlebar clamp, but why don’t you just dive in and lose yourself in the pictures below…
