Confederate Renovatio Project
Renovatio (latin for “rebirth”) is Confederate’s latest project and is expected to take the company’s avant-garde look a big step forward.
Conceived by Confederate’s conceptual design team leader, Ed Jacobs, the motorcycle is minimal: using the fewest pieces, moving parts and systems to accomplish her dynamic mission. It’s uncompromised, light weight, possesses enormous torque and is capable of extreme performance.
Renovatio represents company’s next major model, which the company expects to refine and push to production by sometime in 2008.
Pricing will be at the premium end – The Wraith and Hellcat both sell for well over US$50,000, reflecting the thousands of hours of work that goes into their construction and the exotic materials they’re made from.
I can’t believe that this exciting concept will be real one day. I’m looking forward to see haw these sketches will translate into reality.
