It’s been 18 months since we reported Pierre Terblanche moving from Norton to Confederate Motorcycles, and now the South African is on the move again. Terblanche’s travels take him this time to India, where he has landed a position at Royal Enfield.
The Indian company is in the middle of a growth spurt, having recently acquired 50 acres of land to host their factory expansion. It’s not clear what sort of projects Terblanche will be working on while at Royal Enfield, but we can get an idea from the designer’s latest work, the Confederate X132 Hellcat Speedster.
It will be interesting to see what Terblanche can do with the historic Royal Enfield name, as the designer’s repertoire of modern cruiser style machines has been impressive while he was at Piaggio, Norton, and Confederate. Stay tuned two-wheeled fans.
