Back in 2017, renowned custom motorcycle outfit, El Solitario MC embarked on an ambitious multifaceted project that saw three Harley XR1200 Roadsters transformed into heavily-modified dual-sport bikes before being ridden some 2,500-miles through the Moroccan desert. Known as the “Desert Wolves,” the bespoke ADV bikes from ESMC’s off-road adventure have now inspired Spain’s Iago Valiño to combine elements of the trio of bespoke Harleys with some of the futuristic design language of BMW’s (2019) Vision DC Roadster Concept to create a conceptual off-road-ready electric motorcycle with a removable sidecar.
Powered by an 18.7kWh “Bosch” battery, the bike boasts angular lines with round edges throughout, with a sleek take on a traditional scrambler seat and a futuristic girder-inspired front-end. The use of ultra-beefy Kineo-style 14-spoke rims further blends contemporary aesthetics with visual themes of yesteryear. There’s also vertical and horizontal LED strip lighting at both ends, a unique brake fluid reservoir design, and transparent fenders, as well as numerous nods to David Borras’ Desert Wolves in the form of PIAA LED spotlights, hole-punched skid-plate, and a number of attachment points and straps for securing survival or camping gear.
