2015 "Petardo" 1993 Ducati 900SS

Second Floor - Industry

Anyone who understands motorcycles is intrigued by the “Petardo” and how it resolves the “list” every motorcycle must address — where is the fuel, how is the rider placed, and how does s/he interact with the machine? The “Petardo” answers such fundamentals in a radically different way, and as a result looks like no other motorcycle. It is truly El Solitario’s first masterpiece, a paradoxically mature expression of David Borrás’s vision. Petardo means “firecracker” in Spanish, and like its namesake the “Petardo” must be noticed.
