If you’ve never heard of Renard (French for fox), that’s probably because you’re probably under the age of 90! A couple of designers and racing engineers got together back in 2008 to revive the Estonian brand founded in the 1930s… and it looks fresh as ever.
Its character lies in a modern, one-of-a-kind monocoque body that’s met with retro lines and a logical form. Quite simply, there’s nothing else like it! However, it’s not so quirky that any amount of functionality or user-friendliness has been sacrificed. That ultra-light composite unibody integrates the bike’s frame, fuel tank, and air box into a single load-bearing unit that houses a longitudinally mounted V2 Moto Guzzi Quattrovalvole engine and components that represent the cutting edge of the motorcycle industry.
