When the central defender of Futbol Club Barcelona Gerard Piquehe lost all the points of his driving license, he arrived at the training in the sports city of Barca on a modern and fast bicycle with the appearance of a motorcycle.

exclusive model with the name of each one, and the colors of Barca, Argentina and Spain.
