On the cusp of the ’60s, 1959 marked the beginning of a cultural explosion and the birth of a new attitude to live life to the fullest—an attitude that inspired a revolution in music, art and culture—from rock ’n’ roll to Andy Warhol. This hard-won freedom of expression created the world we live in today and still shapes the culture that surrounds us.
The original iconic ’59 Triumph Bonneville encapsulated this spirit and passion for life, inspiring legions of riders from movie stars to teenage café racers and a whole motorcycle movement. This spirit lives on today in every Triumph Modern Classic, each loaded with original character, iconic style and modern capability.
To celebrate this, Triumph has joined forces with the British contemporary artist D*Face to create three art-inspired custom Modern Classics, under the banner of “The Spirit of ’59.”
A long-standing Triumph fan and owner, D*Face fuses Street Art, Pop Art and Punk in a guerilla creative style, selling his art the world over. Working closely with the Triumph team at their factory headquarters in Hinckley, he has customized three unique bikes inspired by the Spirit of ’59, each one a model from Triumph’s Modern Classics range.
Anyone who takes a Triumph Modern Classic for a test ride between February 7 and April 30, 2018, will have the chance to win one of these unique bikes. Book a test ride and read the full terms and conditions at http://www.triumphmotorcycles.com/spirit-of-59.
