The Renovatio (Latin for "Rebirth") concept
motorbike from Confederate Motorcycles based in America
is a radical concept bike designed by Confederate's lead
designer Ed Jacobs.
The Renovatio is extremely minimalistic with all the mechanical
elements of the bike on show. With large attachment points
easily accessible on the engine, upgrades and various
configurations can easily be exchanged.
The 135 horsepower, 125 ft/lbs of torque V-twin engine
of the Confederate Renovatio concept was built by Katech
Inc. of Detroit. Katech was hired to design five prototype
engines, they chose to base the 1686 cc (103 cu in) V-twin
on General Motors LS7 7.0 litre V8. Katech were also responsible
for the 16 cylinder engine found in the Cadillac
Sixteen concept car of 2003.
Confederate already manufacure two high-end and unique
bikes, the Confederate
Wraith and the Hellcat
F131. The Confederate Renovatio is a concept created
inline with Confederates current vision.
