It takes a brave man to commission a bike from El Solitario: founder David Loner Borras is famed for his wayward, mischievous intelligence. And his small crew of Galician 'cannibals'—as they describe themselves—build bikes that incite controversy.
Two years ago, El Solitario wrapped a BMW R nineT in stainless steel rods, creating the world's first 'Bōsōzoku-Chopper-Racer.' The reaction from the interwebs was intense, to say the least. But that didn't stop Yamaha Europe product manager Shun Miyazawa from knocking on Borras' door earlier this year.
Miyazawa wanted El Solitario to oversee the final Yard Built XJR1300 of 2015, celebrating 20 years of the iconic street machine. The result is a race-inspired track monster that lives up to its name, ‘Big Bad Wolf.’
