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:
“The VTB.1 ‘Venom Triumph Bonneville’ is revealed!”
There’s also various Metal Gear merchandise visitors can score at the event, such as Insert Coin t-shirts, Level Up wear and Musterbrand items, as well as the newly announced 1984 Collection clothing line.
Also, Play Arts action figures, including Skull Face and the recently released Quiet can be purchased at the event.
