We, at xBhp, have been around motorcycles and motorcyclists for as long as we can remember. And one thing that we have noticed is that motorcyclists… talk to their motorcycles. To them, they are not mere machines or tools. To them, they are sentient beings. Now, that might not be something to be taken literally. It is just a means of expression.
And despite that, we take that very seriously. So we decided to give a persona to the said ‘means of expression’. But for this unique endeavour, we needed help… special help.
This help came in the form of Mr Deepak Bansal, also known as the ModelArtician. He is a well-renowned artist who has given shape, a phenomenal one, to many a thoughts and ideas making them… tangible. When we presented the idea to him, his excitement was a dead giveaway that he was onto something. And that ‘something’ is what we call- MotoSapien.
The MotoSapien is a life-sized (more than that actually) statue of a robotic creature (very Transformers like) which was entirely made up of actual Bajaj Dominar 400 parts – 1600 parts to be precise. We unveiled the MotoSapien at the flag-off of the #xBhpDominarGreatAsianOdyssey and the cheer from the crowd cemented the fact that this was something special!
Here’s some more of the MotoSapien and this time, the location is the top-secret facility of ModelArtician…
