The “Renard Grand Tourer” is an ultra-light composite unibody motorbike with a V2 engine.
Notes about this motorcyle (from Renard):
The Renard GT’s carbon-fiber monocoque weighs only 11 kilograms, and is reinforced with Kevlar, to make it resistant to impact and vibration. Thanks to an increased cross-section, the composite body is stiffer than a regular pipe frame, and thus ensures very precise steering. The unibody integrates the motorcycle’s frame, gondolas, petrol tank and air box into a single load-bearing structure. The sleek, no-nonsense exterior gives the Renard its distinctive appearance.
The GT’s suspension is adjustable in three dimensions, and tuned to perfection. The Grand Tourer’s lightweight, hardened- aluminum components are designed and modeled in 3D, then milled from a solid block by CNC machines. These components provide quality, reliability and a sophisticated appearance.
The Renard’s longitudinally mounted 90° V2 engine is strong and powerful, and produces sufficient torque at low revs. The Grand Tourer provides silky smooth acceleration from crowded city streets all the way through to the end of the lonesome straight away. The modern air-cooled engine produces approximately 125 hp at 8000 RPM, and the GT takes has a top speed of 230 km/h.
The stiff body shell, reduced rotational masses and low center of gravity mean that the Renard GT rider will enjoy total control in every maneuver. This is a surgeon’s blade on two wheels, providing you with a complete and powerful riding experience.
