Renovatio Motorbike Makes Me Drool

Renovatio Motorbike


The Renovatio is yet another amazing bike/art masterpiece/mechanical wonder from the engineering wizards at Confederate. Like their Wraiths and Hellcats, this handmade steel, aluminum, titanium and carbon beast looks straight from a Katsuhiro Otomo movie —but even more badass and with a heart to match: a V-twin 1686cc water-cooled engine at a 90ยบ angle. Can't believe it will be real one day? Then check the video of their other bikes and the Renovatio's stunning specs after the jump.
