renard GT motorcycle: a luxury moto guzzi in carbon fiber

 

the renard ‘GT’ carbon fiber motorcycle combines a stealthy aesthetic with engineering intelligence – an ultra-light composite unibody, longitudinally mounted V2 engine and components that provide high performance. the ‘GT’s’ body integrates the motorcycle’s frame, gondolas, petrol tank and air box into a single load-bearing structure. the sleek, rugged exterior gives the renard its distinctive appearance. its carbon-fiber monocoque is a featherweight at just 11 kilograms, and is reinforced with kevlar, enhancing resistance from impact and vibration. the stiff composite body’s increased cross-section also enhances the ‘grand tourer’s’ turning precision.

the renard ‘GT’s’ lightweight, hardened- aluminum components are designed and modeled in 3D, then milled from a solid block by CNC machines. this method provides quality, and a sleek, sophisticated appearance. the stiff body shell, reduced rotational masses and low center of gravity mean that the rider can enjoy total control in every maneuver. like a ‘surgeon’s blade’ on two wheels, offering a complete and powerful riding experience. the longitudinally mounted 90° V2 moto guzzi ‘quattrovalvole’ engine is aggressive, and produces sufficient torque at low revs. the carbon fiber motorcycle provides responsive acceleration from crowded urban areas, to straight and narrow landscapes. the modern air-cooled engine produces approximately 125 horsepower at 8000 RPM, powering the ‘GT’ to a top speed of 230 km/h.

  • Some interesting, strong elements. The seat support is awkward with that motocrossy looking extension.
