The 90Ã‚Â° v-twin donk is no horsepower king, but it's usable midrange and light weight will no doubt contribute to what Renard's press material dubs a Ã¢â‚¬Å“surgeonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s blade on two wheels.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Estonia is not a country known for motorcycles, but the reemergence of a pre-WW2 motorcycle brandname could change all that. Tallinn-based Renard Motorcycles will begin production of its GT next year. The bike's carbon-fiber and Kevlar monocoque chassis weighs just 11 kg and incorporates the airbox and fuel tank while the metal components other than the Moto Guzzi 1200cc Quattrovalvole v-twin engine are all CNC milled from a solid aircraft quality aluminium. The carbon parallelogram front suspension and design are reminiscent of a Confederate Wraith, as is the limited edition, stellar price (EUR75,000), craftsmanship and beauty.
