Revive the Triumph Thruxton 1200 R “Dakota Iglesias”: The entire structure was wrapped in a delectable two-tone paint scheme

When it comes down to customizing Triumph’s beloved machines, the Spanish experts over at Alicante’s Tamarit Motorcycles are no amateurs, alright? Ever since the company’s birth, these folks amassed an impressive number of bespoke ventures, some of which have adorned the autoevolution pages with their grace.

These exploits include a downright feral Thruxton 900 (aka “The Titan”) and one tastefully reworked Bonnie. Today, we’ll be paying Tamarit another visit to drool over a majestic Thruxton 1200 R that goes by the name of “Dakota Iglesias.” I’d encourage you to sit down, because this thing is absolutely breathtaking!

Within its tubular steel cradle frame, the donor houses a fiendish SOHC parallel-twin powerplant that boasts eight valves and a gargantuan displacement of 1,200cc. This nasty piece of liquid-cooled machinery will gladly summon up to 96 hp at approximately 6,750 rpm. On the other hand, the engine is fully capable of supplying as much as 83 pound-feet (112 Nm) of crushing torque at 4,950 revs.

A chain final drive receives this force via a six-speed transmission, enabling Triumph’s predator to reach a respectable top speed of 135 mph (217 kph). When this sexy beast landed on Tamarit’s doorstep, the aftermarket doctors wasted no time casting their surreal spells to create something truly outstanding.

For starters, they went about replacing the Thruxton’s factory bodywork with a selection of custom alternatives from their own range. At the front, you will spot a retro-style fairing and a tiny fender keeping it classy, while the bike’s rear end is adorned by a bolt-on tail section that complements the lines of the stock gas tank. On the flanks, they installed a pair of fresh side panels, as well as polished engine covers bearing the creature’s name.

In terms of performance, the parallel-twin colossus was treated to free-flowing air filters developed by Free Spirits’ experts. On the other end of the combustion cycle, Tamarit proceeded to equip a neat exhaust system from the Italians over at Mass. The front and rear suspension setups wear an assortment of top-grade Ohlins components that’ll improve handling by a significant margin.

Lastly, Dakota Iglesias crawls on a pair of lightweight laced hoops hailing from Kineo’s catalogue. The entire structure was enveloped in a delicious two-tone color scheme, divided by gold pinstripes that run the length of the bike.
