Yes, it’s really himthe same Kirian who last year did a backflip with an Africa Twin equipped with suitcases.
This year the Spanish rider, famous on social media for posting his stunts on the Maxi Enduro, he tried his hand at a real Gymkhana on his Africa Twin to pay homage to the legend of this discipline: Ken Block.
The video, which you can find at the beginning, was recorded in the island of La Palma and it’s really adrenaline: “I grew up with videos of his famous Gymkhana. His loss a few months ago was a blow that no one expected, he was a pioneer and an inspiration,” said Mirabet about the American, a motorsport legend for his viral videos showing his spectacular driving.
Kirian’s ambition was to make content similar to Ken’s, and his good friend, Eduardo Diaz who lives in El Paso, told him: “I think I can do it.” And that’s exactly how that spectacular video was born. After two and a half months of organization, five days of shooting and many permits, this idea has materialized into a successful video that has already left hundreds of thousands of people speechless.

Seven minutes of fire, open gas through the streets of the city and in the beautiful volcanic landscapes of the island. Kirian says it wasn’t easy to organise: “Due to logistical difficulties, I had to shoot the video with a private motorcycle belonging to a friend who lives in Tenerife. I flew to the island of La Palma with my gear and the components from my sponsors, which we mounted on my friend’s bike which was completely stock”
The most adrenaline-pumping scene to film for the pilot was that of jumping stairs. Kirian says that was the only place where he “saw any risk”. “I asked my team to take extra precautions. In the end everything went perfectly and there were no problems … It was fantastic,” he added of the manoeuvre.
