Muralla

A bike with a Triumph Bonneville T120 engine and Brat Style style, designed and transformed by Tamarit Motorcycles.

From Alicante to China

The motorcycle named as Muralla has been the most significant project for Tamarit Motorcycles, not only for being the most beautiful motorcycle we ever made or the project with most impact, but also for 2 reasons: first, because it was the first motorcycle from the Triumph new generation worked by Tamarit ever, and second, because of the final meaning that this motorcycle had, a 30 day journey from Alicante to China.

By the end of 2015 we met David Gavina, Alicante Triumph Club president, a truly passionate motorcycle enthusiast, someone who riding 1000 km on a single morning is like a walk in the park.

All his adventures were already known: Morocco, an Spanish Tour, the North Cape, Alicante-South Africa journey… and one day on Tamarit Motorcycles, having a chat and some beers with friends, someone from the Tamarit Crew said: “Next journey David, you’ll ride a motorcycle worked by us”.

Silk Road

A couple of days after, David turned up at our headquarters, and proposed to us something that haunted him for quite a long time: An Alicante to China journey through the famous Silk Route, 30,000 kilometers only in 30 days and completely on his own. The journey wouldn’t be riding his Triumph Tiger but a neoclassic Triumph prepared by Tamarit Motorcycles. 

The proposal was more than tempting, no one attempted to make that trip alone and with a Triumph Bonneville, but David’s safety was the main priority.

We tried to talk David out about making the journey, because it is a very dangerous route taking into account the uncertain situation that some of the countries were going through: countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, the whole Turkestan region…etc and on top of that, completely alone. In the end, David ignored our warnings and wanted to carry on with the adventure.

First thing to do was to communicate Triumph Spain the great feat to carry out. Initially they didn’t pay much attention, but finally a little collaboration happened.

Once the Bonneville T120 was purchased to carry out the adventure, the phase of preparing the Triumph motorcycle began. Obviously the result should be a Tamarit motorcycle: an urban motorcycle, a brat style comfortable for the city-ride and beautiful… but never a motorcycle built and ready for such an adventure as a Triumph Explorer or Triumph Tiger.

The first part to install was the “Ibiza” seat, we wanted a concept like our former seat Tarifa, but in this case we would provide it higher. Later on the time for the muffler came, we loved the look of the Bocanegra exhaust, but this time, instead of being 2 in 1, there would be only the mufflers and one on each side. A stainless steel sump guard, a short fender, protective headlight grill and side covers were some of the parts developed for this project.

A complete success

We couldn’t forget the difficulty of this journey, 1000 kilometers legs and distances with no chance to refuel more than 400 kilometers so, we worked on the practical area of the motorcycle as well, without setting the esthetic aside. A set of carriers were developed so David could transport his equipment, two 5 liter canisters were adapted on both sides of the Bonneville motorcycle, tires were changed from regular to mixed, a cross handlebar with holders to set the cellphone and GPS and a powerstrip to charge all kinds of devices.

Only the esthetic part was left: paintjob, upholstery, leather grips, rims and turning signals. The outcome was a total achievement, so we have only had to wait for the departure date and hope things would go as David expected.
