Team Blog

Hello,
I am the co-founder of Super Bolide and along with my pilot friends of the Team, we’d like to share some of our own experiences as well as those of some of the men and women we’ve been lucky enough to meet and who have left their mark on the motor cycle racing circuit.
I personally raced motocross from 1977 to 1981. Then in 1988 and 1989, I participated in the Baja 1000 California and thanks to my teammates, I successfully completed both. Further to that, I had a shot at speed for a while until entering the Bol d’Or Classic in 2013 and 2018 as well as the first round of the European Legend Cup in 2019. 
In 2020, I participated in the Enduropale Vintage section of the Enduro du Touquet, riding a 1982 Yamaha.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading our blog and have a great time with The SuperBolide Team.

NEW DUCATI 916 PASO (by SuperBolide)

MV Agusta and Ducati are among the motorcycle brands that generate the most emotion in me. In terms of design and rider sensations, there is rarely a better choice. In recent years, Japanese manufacturers, for whom I have immense respect, have accelerated design efforts, resulting in machines that are inspired by mangas. I However, loving simplicity, I leave them to people who appreciate hyper-designed motorcycles. Thus I find that the last MV Agusta has fallen into  this category of over-intricate design, in particular the 675 and the 800, but the Superveloce should rectify this.

Ducati bikes have always thrilled me; I would give up my right arm to  ride, or even own, a Desmosedici. Two other Ducati, however, also excite me: the 916 and the Paso. The first has become a myth and I will not add to the praise about it. If the Paso pays homage to the great rider Renzo Pasolini, it has not marked the history of italian motorcycles. However, its very specific aesthetic has always given me a thrill.

That’s why I’ve conceived a Ducati that combines the fluidity of the Paso with the finesse and performance of the 916. Thanks to Hervé Corgier, the talented illustrator that you can discover in the SuperBolide Art Gallery (in french version of this website – english coming soon), we’ve brought it to life on paper. We would like to know your thoughts and opinions on it, which you can share with us on our Facebook page. If the opinions are positive, we will build a prototype… and maybe more.
