The reimagined Renard BMW R100 represents Renards interpretation of the ultimate Cafe Racer. Timeless looks meld with modern techniques and manufacturing methods to produce something truly exceptional and one of a kind. Renard believes a motorcycle should transcend mere transportation; their mission is to craft more than a bike, aiming for the ultimate ride.
Uncompromising quality and attention to details
Uncompromising quality and attention to detail are evident in every inch, nut, and bolt of the base R100, transformed into a creation exceeding the sum of its parts. Renard carefully selects materials and components, incorporating time period-correct yet newly produced parts such as Tarozzi foot controls, Beringer brakes, and Hattech exhaust systems. The petrol tank and body panels, crafted from aluminum, can be painted or polished for a distinctive “aviation” look. Natural leather is used for seat construction, and even the helmet and riding jacket can be customized to match the bike’s color scheme and the rider’s personal measures.
The 1000cc Renard Custom Engine delivers smooth and powerful riding performance, boasting substantial torque from low revs, with approximately 80 HP and 95Nm torque ensuring an exhilarating experience. The engine upgrade is optional, and bikes can also be ordered with the stock engine.
In the braking department, Renard takes a step further by replacing the original BMW parts with Ceriani-type fork and rear shocks, equipping the bike with a full 3-way adjustable classic racing spec suspension.
Electronics receive a blend of classical aesthetics and modern functionality. Smiths digital head units provide ultimate comfort and visibility, while a modernized electric system offers encrypted Keyless Go function, Ping! Locating system, and full smartphone and app control over the bike.
Customization is a cornerstone of Renard’s approach, tailoring every Renard R100 to the owner through collaborative work. All customization options are pre-visualized to ensure a shared vision of the final bike. Renard even offers the possibility to commission matching riding gloves, jackets, or other leather accessories to complement the seat and handlebar leather.
