The World's Most Hated Motorcycle

Impostor from El Solitario on Vimeo.

Saw El Solitario's Imposter in the flesh for the first time at Glemseck and, among the cookie-cutter airhead BMWs that half-filled the event, it stood out like a turd on a wedding cake. In a good way. Which was the whole point of it (I think).

BMW's head of motorrad design, Ola Stenegard was riding around on it with a shit-eating grin on his face, so he must like it.

Intrigued by El Solitario? Want to read more? We've featured three of their bikes:

SB16 (Cover bike) Petardo the Ducati
SB14 Gonzo the BMW boxer twin
SB12 Chupito the Ducati single (sold out - we're trying to find a box of them, Raiders of the Lost Ark-style.) G

"It's the artist who educates the critics". Not my words but this bike makes you ponder...

'The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic' - it's Oscar Wilde, & as far as I can tell he's satirising power structures, not reinforcing them, but crack on.
