Triumph Scrambler - The Hunter (3)

The Triumph Scrambler, in itself, is quite worthy of its name. However, Euromotos—a dealership and custom shop in Zürich, Switzerland, decided to lend a handful of classy, detailed touches to the Scrambler for a client, resulting in the exquisiteness you see in these pictures. The custom bike’s brawny stance and distinctive satin olive finish have earned it the moniker Le Chasseur or ‘The Hunter’.

The standard, 865cc eight-valve, air-cooled engine is massaged to generate more power now, via larger valves, hotter cams, remapped fuel injection settings, and a higher compression ratio. To breathe more freely, the modified the air box now cradles a free-flowing filter, while a Zard exhaust system lets it rip more freely. All the aforementioned modifications see the Hunter crank out a healthy 95 bhp of power; as compared to 60 bhp when stock.

To reign in all the extra power, a Brembo P4 braking setup was added at the front, along with a Galfer petal disc designed for the Thruxton. Suspending duties are taken care of by Öhlins, with FG324 upside-down forks at the front, and S36P shocks out back. The forks are held in place by new triple trees from LSL, while new Continental dual-sport tires now bite some dust.

Other LSL parts include a set of X01 Superbike bars, bar risers, adjustable clutch and brake levers, a chain guard, sprocket cover, main and passenger foot pegs and foot controls. The regulator, ignition and horn have all been relocated to give a cleaner looking front end.

Visual details include a minimalist JVB headlight, new, compacter side panels and a wafer thin rear fender. The Scrambler’s stock instrumentation has been done away with, and replaced with a Motogadget Motoscope Tiny speedo. The incredibly cool bar-end turn signals are also sourced from Motogadget.

The satin olive green paint for the tank and fender also deserves a mention. The Triumph emblem on the tank and Erne’s logos on the side panels are done up in gold, complimenting the distinctive Öhlins components. The Hunter is also sprinkled with a handful of other gold highlights, like the adjustment dials on the levers and the chain.

The stock seat has also been done away with, and a slimmer, shorter, classier seat with custom upholstery takes its place. Apropos to the Hunter being an incredibly detailed out project, the diamond pattern is stitched by a green thread that’s supposed to darken over time to compliment the tank. What’s more, that diamond-stitch pattern is replicated on the grips handlebar grips as well!
