Pierre Terblanche joins Royal Enfield
And rumours of a new adventure bike
PIERRE Terblanche has left Confederate Motorcycles to join Royal Enfield.
The South African designer, who has worked for Ducati, Cagiva, Piaggio and Norton, left the Alabama-based motorcycle firm to become head designer at Royal Enfield.
Siddhartha Lal, the CEO of Eicher, which owns Royal Enfield, said: "I am very excited that Pierre Terblanche has recently joined our team; he is one of the most prolific industrial designers for motorcycles, and is best known for having created some extraordinary motorcycles as the head of design for Ducati for over a decade.”
The news of Terblanche’s move comes shortly after internet reports suggest Royal Enfield will be releasing a new adventure bike along with a new 400cc engine to power upcoming models.
