Glynn Kerr Design
British-born Glynn Kerr has specialized in motorcycle design for over twenty years. An early graduate of Coventry University's Transport Design course, he worked briefly for TVR Sports Cars in the UK before moving to Munich to join BMW as an exterior designer in 1982. Two years later, he transferred to the motorcycle division, since when he has worked exclusively with bikes.

From 1987-90 he was Chief Designer with Amsterdam-based Global Design (now GK Design Europe), the official styling studio for Yamaha's European operations. Here, he penned such models the TDM 850 and TDR 125, while contributing to projects as varied as the GTS, Superténéré , XT600 and BW's scooter.

As an independent consultant, he has since worked with a large majority of the world's top motorcycle manufacturers, including Ducati, Honda, Triumph, Aprilia, Harley-Davidson, Kymco, Voxan and Kawasaki. For over a decade, he has also been senior consultant to Bajaj in India, helping the company transform the market for smaller-capacity domestic models. As well as commissions from the major producers, Glynn has worked with smaller enterprises and start-up companies, creating the Midual Roadster, the Boxer 654, VB1 & B2, Voxan Scrambler, and more recently, the American-built Fischer MRX.

In addition to his design activities, Glynn was lecturer at the Art Center College of Design, Europe, and is co-founder and President of the Motorcycle Design Association. Best known as a regular contributor of articles and illustrations to motorcycle magazines worldwide, he is now Creative Director of Motovisions, California, and runs a network of designers offering a variety of motorcycle-based design services.
