Despite only being founded in 2015, Tamarit Motorcycles has quickly established itself as one of the planet’s premier customizers of Triumph bikes, with more than six-dozen one-off parallel-twin-powered projects under its belt. The Spanish shop’s 76th build would be a little different, however, as it was to be crafted for a veteran Dakar Rally competitor. As such, Tamarit opted to utilize one of the Hinckley firm’s more off-road-capable Scrambler 1200 XEs as the project’s donor, before proceeding to treat the Triumph to a host of additional performance and visual upgrades.
Built for hardcore off-roading and adventure-touring, the Ohlins-equipped XE has been gifted larger fork guards, a beefier Patagonia skid plate, aftermarket hand-guards, a honeycombed radiator guard, an alpine-style saddle, a custom subframe supporting a myriad of luggage attachment brackets, custom “Dakar M&M” tank badges, a grilled headlight shrouded via an Atlas windscreen and supplemented via a pair of fork-mounted auxiliary lights, old-school fenders front and aft, anodized gold rims, pin LED indicators front and rear, and a bespoke set of high-mount silencers capped off with a cleverly-designed heat shield that aids in cooling. The stock tank remains in play, though it’s been repainted and given vintage-style tank-dents just behind the fork uppers. To see more of the project, you can visit Tamarit’s website linked below.
