Everything about WAKAN
WAKAN Brand History
Wakan Motorcycles has quite an interesting history because it all started when Joel Domergue, the founder of the company, built his first bicycle. Disappointed by a gift he received from his parents, he decided to build his own bicycle, equipped with the features he wanted. Since he was 15 years old, most of the bicycles and motorcycles he owned were often modified in order to meet his requirements. However, since he was a kid, Joel Domergue has always dreamed to have his own motorcycle company.
After spending no less than 13 years working as an engineer in the nuclear industry, Joel Domergue managed to launch Scorpa, his first motorcycle factory. The next few years represented a real success for Scorpa, its motorcycles being sold in approximately 6,000 units around the world. Moreover, the bikes brought multiple victories in the World Trials Championship and in the Scottish Six Day Trial in 1998 when the company's pilot, Graham Jarvis, rode a Scorpa.
