MotorcycleNews reports: Venom is based on the Bonneville T100 ridden by character Snake in Metal Gear Solid V, and was created in-house by the Triumph team. There are no mirrors, speedo, or rev counter, and it wears aggressive go-anywhere Continental TKC80 tyres, while the stock saddle has been cut down and refinished in Sneaking Suit neoprene and carbon Kevlar leather, inspired by Snake’s combat wear. A heavy duty ammo rack loops around the back of the saddle, offering both protection and somewhere secure to bolt down an extra case or two of rounds.

Before the reveal the bike was kept hidden under this large cardboard box:

      • Mini gear

        I will give, it all for it,(not for honor but for ittttttttt snake eaterrrr)

      • quintimnia

        shit :'( i wish i was in london. wouldnt hesitate a second.

      • Andrea Feletti

        what’s a one off item?

        • That they only made one, supposedly.

  • Annadill

    i soooooo want that bike but when a normal Bonneville t100 costs about £8000 the cost of this one will make me cry lol

    • Mini gear


      • Gatsu

        :O …

    • ThreeMadFrogs

      Yes yes, I know you’d like to know how much. I’m afraid it costs… nine thousand thousand thousand… yen.

    • jokapo

      I dont think itd he that hard to customize it yourself to make it look like this. I’ll try whenever i get my Triumph xD

  • XIFF-5

    So Awesome! Looks so special with nice touch of red painted parts with matte Black.
    It is a Masterpiece! Hope we can use it within gameplay!

    • quintimnia

      probably we can.

  • quintimnia

    exhaust is very short, wow. and wrapped. wrapped because its probably too loud.

    • mikeyyytexas

      The wrap is for heat lol some people put it on for the aesthetic but it’s used as a heat shield

  • Sly

    Eva confirmed lol

    • Amrit

      I SERIOUSLY hope she’s an in-game character, and not just in tape form like in Peace Walker.

  • Damn I was never interested in motorcycles but this makes me sweat so much

  • Sn4ke_911

    In all the gameplay videos we’ve seen were Big Boss ordered something from motherbase it came with that green cardboardbox.

    I really think we can use that motorcycle in the game guys :O

    I don’t think they would have built this if it was just shown in a
    cutscene or something. This thing gotta be rideable in the game!

    • Nemis94

      I agree, it must be in the game 😀

      • Zlatan

        it will be in the game. i’m 100000% sure.

    • Gatsu

      Can’t wait to ride it in TPP :). I’ve been hoping ever since the GDC trailer that we can ride some motorcycle.

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        Do you think the leather jacket and the cigar will be in the final version. Which role do you think the leather jacket have in the story and the same for sneaking suit.

    • Just casually ride it through the hospital or steal Kaz’ sunglasses and drive around him hehe

    • Batzi

      Dude it’s obviously playable.

    • Snorlax

      Yeah, they wouldn’t show the bike at an event and not have it in the game.

  • Where is the love box when you need it? <3

    Eva confirmed then, LMAO. (Kidding… Or not…)

  • …you mean, that’s my ride?!
    That’s my in game ride?!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Chris Jackson

      I wish that was my out-of-game ride…

  • Chris Jackson

    So… With the girl on the bike resembling EVA, does that give us a hint? I know her voice was in Peace Walker, but maybe she’ll meet Big Boss again…

    • We gon’ rescue her :3

      • Chris Jackson

        How come my comment was deleted?

        • It’s still there for me

          • Restored it, not sure why it was deleted.

  • Ricardo Oe

    The model on the bike has nice tits, and the bench should smell good…

  • oselot14
  • oselot14
    • Interesting, added to the post. yes, it does sound like Snake will be able to ride it in the game, which would make sense of course.

  • Javier

    We are going to be spotted riding the motorcycle through afghanistan.

    And talking about spending too much money in a game… don’t tell this to konami’s president.

  • PrinceHeir


  • Flameeater

    A couple small things….

    1. This thing looks like a toy in the first couple of pics.

    2. Maybe there are multiple motorcycles in the game because this is certainly not the same bike from the end of the Not Your Kind Of People trailer. In that trailer, the bike clearly has an instrument cluster, and the handlebars seem differnt. In fact I am actually wondering if the Handlebars from the trailer would even work on a bike like this. Sure, you could swap em, and they would fit, but I doubt it would be a comfy ride, the seating position just seems wrong to me (Bonneville is too high). My guess (and hope) is we will have a choice of different bikes. Or maybe I am an idiot… Only time will tell.

    • Flameeater

      On second thought… I think I may be wrong on that. Most likely just the camera angle. BB just seems to be sitting far deeper in the saddle than the Bonneville would normally allow. I mean, if its not the camera angle then I dunno cause in the trailer we are getting a good head and shoulder shot from the bars, yet on this bike it looks more like it would be more of a belt and crotch shot LOL.

  • DDADDB .

    I was there!! 😀

  • muaddib

    All the fuzz about riding bikes, cars, tanks, horses, etc and the feeling of customization on those in TPP remind me of another game.
    Banjo-Kazooie Nuts and Bolts

  • Neil Kapit

    If I had this bike, I’d only get off of it if I fell in love or fell dead

    • What?!

      Are you never gonna play The Phantom Pain or what? LOL

  • A bike like this for the figurines would be cool too. 🙂

  • ObsessedGeorge

    Meh, l’m dissapointed. I was expecting the chopper that Big Boss was riding in the “Not Your Kind Of People” trailer. That’s not it…

    • Batzi

      What chopper? If you are referring to the bike then yes it is the same exact one.

    • quintimnia

      thats it probably.

  • hope we can ride the bike so completing extra-ops or exploring that big map can be done faster (like in gta where a bike is more useful than a car) be we’ll be able to upgrade it in order to make it more silent…

  • ominonarepus

    November of 83, I can see Kaz, Ocelot and the rest of the unit on the new year’s eve dancing to this…

    ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night, and no one’s gonna save you from the beast about to strike.
    You know it’s thriller, thriller night. You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller.

    • Tong Ninja

      XD it would be cool that when Snake fights the Skulls in the game, he turns on this song and blast it through the speakers of the iDroid causing the Skulls to dance like those zombies in the music video!

      • ominonarepus

        We’re talking about Kojima… everything is possible xDDD

  • PrinceHeir

    So uh is this real? :O

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      nah! it points to 9/11 instead of 9/01

  • glitchbomb

    Well…looks like I know what figures I’m picking up from San Diego comic con.
    Damn…..I would be happy with a sweet messenger bag that looks like the bag on the bike.

    Side note. I have worked the sdcc for over 7 years now so if there is any neat mgs stuff I will take plenty of pix to share!

    • Sounds great, thank you! When is San Diego Comic-Con?

      • glitchbomb

        July 8th through the 12. The 8th is Wednesday, “preview day” and you have to have a “special pass” to get in. It really kicks off on the 9th though. Ends on Sunday.

  • Boldizar

    Great, a motorcycle that 15 people will buy…

  • LegendarySnake51

    This is my bike!
