Oh look, something else to add to your ‘Impossible gaming merchandise’ wishlist. The VTB:1/Venom bike has been crafted by UK motorcycle specialists Triumph in honour of the Bonneville T100 ridden by Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
Complete with Diamond Dogs logo and stripped of mirrors, speedometer and rev counter (safe), the bike is allegedly ready to take on the wilds of Afghanistan and Africa. Plus, in a quest for true Snake-dom the saddle has been refinished in Sneaking Suit neoprene and carbon Kevlar inspired by MGS’s grizzled leading man.
Unveiled at MCM Comic Con in London last weekend, the bike has heavy-duty fork springs, cut down rear guard and and an all-important exclamation mark tail light. Plus, if you like motorcycle words there’s colour matched callipers, Triumph Tiger off-road foot pegs, Renthal performance sprocket, machined throttle body caps and Triumph sport levers. Phew. The bad news is that it's not available for sale but it'll be travelling to more events later this year.
Check out the full gallery above and the bike’s unveiling (from under a cardboard box) at MCM below.
