Apart from motorcycles, he had also briefly worked at the Volkswagen Design Studio in Germany in the early days of his career. Pierre had also worked with Italian designer Massimo Tamburini, who had designed many bikes for Ducati, MV Augusta, and Cagiva.

Default Re: Royal Enfield Design Director quits after 20 month term

That is a blow for RE. I wonder if whatever projects he was part of, sees the light of day.

In 20 months that he was with RE, i haven't heard much of his contributions either and I still am not sure if he contributed to the Himalayan or not.

Hoping RE continues the way it is without any hiccups.
