Krugger Gives The Triumph Scrambler XE A Sleek Urban-Ready Makeover

Jul 2, 2020

Category: Rides

With multiple AMD World Championship Of Bike Building titles to his name, Belgian custom moto extraordinaire, Fred Bertrand (better known as “Krugger”), is undoubtedly one of the world’s most eminent bespoke builders, with a deep body of world-class factory-commissioned works and a wildly impressive range of style that extends to creating one-off vehicles of the four-wheeled variety. And the Basse-Bodeux-based builder has now further demonstrated his diverse capabilities, pivoting from his usual brutish and muscular builds to tackle a British-made scrambler model.

Born out of a joint commission from Triumph Benelux and Rebellion Timepieces, the project began life as a Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE before Freddy threw it up on the bench. The modern Bonneville-derived fuel-cell has been replaced with a genuine retro Bonneville unit, and the stock subframe has been reworked to accommodate a bespoke leather saddle. New old-school-style fenders adorn both ends of the XE and the original headlight now wears a mini cafe screen. There’s also Beringer brakes and Excel rims, though the most noticeable change is undoubtedly the exhaust: a custom pair of high-mount single-pipes positioned behind bespoke heat shields that, like the tank, have been hit with a black livery with Rebellion and Triumph branding.
