Morello Red Bobber Custom







2018 Morello Red

Short rear fender
Short front fender
White wall tires Avon Cobra
Statement seat
Side mount plate relocate
Triumph rear light kit
New Rage front signals
Triumph small bar end mirrors
Cat delete
Vance and Hines exhaust
Wrapped exhaust
Remap for exhaust changes

I really like this bike so far. It is a torque monster and sounds so good. It is nice that it is not obnoxious at idle but really comes alive when you get on the gas.

Looks great. Do tell about the re-map? Lots of folks wondering about re-maps or the need to really do it.

The tech at my dealer told me that Triumph has different “richer” Maps available for exhaust and intake modification. They advised that it would be best to go richer across the board with the exhaust change.

Nice bike mate!
Tell me; is it the light when you took the photo; or did you darken the seat a bit? Please let me know because I also have the statement seat in brown, but it's more orangey-brown than in your photos.

Cheers!

I would say it is a little darker but would get lighter as it “dries” more. I hit it with a coat of mink oil type product to waterproof and protect it. It gets a deep dark look when that is first applied.

Every time I see white wall tires, I always think back to those Goodyear lights up tires from the 60s. Great looking build!

Thanks. My vision was for this bike to maybe have a 60’s look. I had a guy this past weekend tell me that I had a good looking bike and “they don’t make them like that anymore”. I think he was more than a little surprised when I told him it was a 2018.

A similar thing happened to me a couple of months ago, when I was on the guest list at a "Tito & Tarantula" concert here in Germany; Tito Larriva, the band leader congratulated me on my "gorgeous bike" and said "you really done that well, how old is it?"

He was of course even more surprised when I told him that she's new and that you can buy them like this today! He invited me to his next gig, a week later and we talked about his next Euro tour 2018, and how I'd like to get a photo of him sitting on my bike; he agreed. So next year I should have a pic of "Tito on a Triumph"

Cheers!
