Bonneville T120 Muralla’s story
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 motorcycle passionated, 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”.
A couple of days after, David turned up in our headquarters, and propose 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.
