A bombing raid during the Second World War destroyed the Renard factory, ending a period of production that ran from 1938 to 1944. It wasn’t until 2008 that the name was resurrected by Andres Uibomae. Renard began producing the Renard GT, which featured a carbon frame on a Euro-compliant cruiser. Since then, Renard’s Speed Shop has been producing incredible bikes, culminating in their latest project, the Renard BMW R1250 R. This unique bike adds a dynamic appearance to a reliable boxer that gives new meaning to its name: Reimagined.

Featuring body panels and a fuel tank that are handcrafted from aluminium, the BMW R1250 R has a thick, almost beefy appearance thanks to the custom bodywork. A massive belly pan combines with the front grille piece, which was made by precision machining it from a single aluminum billet. The new tank cover has wing pieces that cover a set of K&N pod filters. The fork covers are 3D printed.

Up front, a set of circular headlights are stacked on top of each other in a custom housing. The rear lights are integrated into a bobber-style seat. Giving the bike an even greater sense of mass, the motorcycle rides on Jonich spoked wheels. A titanium Akrapovic race exhaust system from a Ducati Panigale Superleggera gives the bike a deep-throated growl to match its large size. Renard also reworked the Boxer engine to deliver even more power—to the tune of 105 lb-ft of torque. To finish off the bike, Renard gave it a black and white livery.

It took a few years for the Renard name to come back, but when it did, it made an impact to rival the one that shut down their factory. Now they’re continuing to impact the world of custom motorcycles with projects like the Renard BMW R1250 R.
