What Happens When An Enduro Rider Takes An Africa Twin Jumping? A Backflip, That’s What!

The rider even threw in panniers on the bike, because why not?

There are normal riders and then there are ace riders, the sort of people who push the boundaries of riding to new heights. YouTuber and Honda rider Kirian Mirabet Vidiella belongs to the latter. He has so far done some bonkers things with his rally-spec Africa Twin including riding on ice, jumping around, steep hill climbs and attacking trails, amongst other things.

2016 - 2018 Ducati Hypermotard 939

The Hooligan Bike You Always Wanted

Ducati updated its Hypermotard for the 2016 model year and carried that forward to 2018. Fairly fresh off a revamp in ’13, the new Hypermotard variant brings Ducati’s EURO 4-emissions compliant Testastretta to the range along with its increased, 937 cc displacement and 113-pony output.
