This Triumph Bonneville dubbed Essentia (essence in Greek and literally ‘the what it was to be’) is another stunning creation by Luca and Fabio Pozzato of Officine GP Design who’ve already shown the world their capabilities of turning production motorcycles into works of art, like their Pathos, based on a 2012 MV Brutale 1090R.
The Essentia is part of Officine GP Design’s program called “ONLY FOR YOU” and while men are usually the ones who want customized bikes, this creation was done for a woman named Stefania.
The Pozzato brothers used a number materials included steel, wood, aluminium alloy, bronze and leather to lovingly handcraft and transform this Bonneville into the Essentia, which took six months to bring to life.
Some of the modifications that went into this creation: Kineo rims, Brembo floating disc brakes, HD springer fork, Rizoma accessories (caps, pegs and handles), a RK chain, a comfortable low ride brown suede leather saddle, fuel cap Monza model, an old style tail light, the rear fender is made in sheet metal and covered with rosewood crafed by a master cabinet maker and the paint job is glossy and multilayered to give off a riply turtle effect and the “OFFICINE GP DESIGN” logo on the tank sides is brass billet that has been processed and aged.
