A custom Triumph may be the best winter bike ever.

Triumph has unveiled five new custom bikes at the UK's Motorcycle Live show this week, led by a highly-modified Tiger 800 Ice Bike.

Fitted with a heavily-studded rear tire, the Ice Bike also has a completely redeveloped front end, using a modified front suspension unit to replace the front wheel with a functional ski.

The 800 XCx sports a handlebar-mounted external temperature gauge, a satellite navigation holder, a headlamp protector, reworked fenders, and a new side-exit exhaust system. The Tiger has also been fitted with high-powered off-road LED driving lamps and emergency rescue tools, with a collapsible spade, and ice axe. (What about heated grips?! –Ed.)

Triumph will also reveal a modified Speed Triple S, and a particularly utilitarian Tiger Explorer XCx.

Motorcycle club and London venue Bike Shed has collaborated with Triumph on a standard model Thruxton, which will be on display for the first time at the show. And bespoke custom builders Old Empire Motorcycles will display their latest creation called, simply, “Triumph.”
