Who would have thought that a small Baltic Country known for its tech culture would come up with such an ingenious motorbike design?
Renard GT is the brainchild of a group of Estonian entrepreneurs, designers, and engineers who wanted to revive the original Estonian Renard Brand from 1938. The first Renards were pipe-framed motorized bicycles, equipped with a 98cc Sachs engine. The factory got destroyed in 1944 and none of the bikes survived. Till the first modern Renard made its debut on the global stage at Hannover motor show in 2010
Perhaps the highlight of the Renard GT is its chassis. The Monocoque is made entirely from carbon epoxy and reinforced with kevlar. Unlike a traditional tubular bike frame, it is stronger yet lighter. The increased cross-section increases rigidity and provides superior steering capabilities around the tightest corners. The Renard Website calls it a ‘surgeons blade on two wheels’ and we cannot help but agree
The Renard sports a longitudinally mounted 90° V2 moto guzzi ‘quattrovalvole’ engine. The air-cooled engine produces around 125 horsepower at 8000 RPM, with a top speed of 230 km/h.
The Renard showroom is in the hip district of Telliskivi in Tallinn, Estonia. The showroom is inside a coffee shop so you can enjoy a latte while admiring the beauty on display (keeping your social distance off course)
