This year, Trip Machine marks its next stop on its worldwide expansion, and it’s finally here in the Philippines. Positioned as a moto-lifestyle brand, Trip Machine has a lineup of products that cater to retro riders, which include riders on scramblers, cafe racers, and also cruisers.
Trip Machine offers a lineup of premium, handcrafted products that can transform one’s motorcycle riding experience into something that is truly special. Able to transition from the ride to the hustle and bustle of normal life, all Trip Machine products are well-designed and crafted out of premium leather, strong fittings, and durable construction. The leather in particular is one of the brand’s highlights as Trip Machine uses the highest quality it can craft with.
Officially established in January 2016, its origins can be traced back to February 2015 when Siddharth Singh, brought his friends together—all of which share the same passion and vision for riding and developing products. From there, Trip Machine went into business about a year after that, and they’ve been riding ever since.
“The idea was simple, to make the world of motorcycles a beautiful place to ride. We started crafting gear the only way we knew, slow and immaculate with our hands. Gear that was forged with the old school mindset of build to last. Crafted to stay by your ride for years, collecting memories along the way.”

Apart from luggage, footwear is also part of the catalog.
