From Central India to the South, and North of India, Fabien ended his Indian Design experience chapter after being Head of Advanced Design & Trend Research at HERO MOTOCORP [INDIA, Jaipur].

Having joined ISD [Institut Superieur de Design - FRANCE] in 2000 after four years of A-Level in Applied Arts in Paris, Fabien ROUGEMONT successfully completed the five-year course with distinction; he is now ISD France graduated with a Master in Automotive and Transportation Design Degree.

There, he designed 5 full vehicles; 3 motorcycles, 1 scooter and 1 small car. 
The BOXER SSR [one Super-Sport motorcycle along with its Roadster version] and the SCORPA Raidster [Name given by Fabien only]. Later he has designed an electric car presented at the International Paris Automotive Show [September 2008]. And an electric Scooter, designed and developed for Boxer Design and then the project has been bought by PEUGEOT Motorcycles to be developed and launched to take a good place on the electrical 2 wheelers market under the name of PEUGEOT "e-Vivacity".

Moreover, Fabien also worked successfully for many worldwide brands like Honda [Main client with many design of motorcycle upgrades, limited editions...], Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Scorpa, Voxan in motorcycle design and many more like Peugeot automobiles, Eurocopter, Zodiac, Shark Helmets etc.

In August 2008, Fabien ROUGEMONT has decided to leave his beloved position and works in BOXER DESIGN to go for a complete new horizon.
What an amazing new challenge to create and start from scratch [with 3colleagues only] the FIRST International School of Design in INDIA, DSK ISD
After 6 years, Fabien was a pillar for ISD India.

In DSK ISD, Fabien ROUGEMONT was managing the Motorcycle Design Projects and the Light Mobility Design Studios, that he had created himself, but has been as well 2 years heading the TRANSPORTATION DESIGN Department of the school. Despite the huge workload of the start [creation of the core values of the school, creation of exercises, methodologies, lectures, projects, masterclasses, plannings etc...] Fabien had a mission to build from scratch the entire workshop of DSK ISD. The industrial workshop of DSK ISD is today probably the biggest school's workshop in India equipped with the best tools and machineries from European standards.
Beside, Fabien was in charge of the Cintiq, sketch, drawing and rendering courses and was the supervisor for the prototyping and advanced clay modeling. 

Another very great achievement, Fabien along with a team of few design students [Riten GOGIYA, Vinit GOGRI, Mario MASCARENHAS, Akshay BIYANI, Akshay PARDESHI] have been announced winners for the 2013 REDDOT DESIGN AWARD, in the CONCEPT CATEGORY.

From September 2014 to September 2016, Fabien was working as Senior Motorcycle Designer at TVS MOTOR managing ADVANCED DESIGN Projects. 
At the DELHI MOTOR Show in January 2016, Fabien unveiled the "TVS X21 Concept Racer" [a concept study to evolve the Apache Brand and the latest 200 4v as a proper One Make Cup Motorcycle, full RaceSpecs loaded , celebrating the 33 Years of TVS RACING..] was finding youngsters and fanatic Indian riders, vibrating about that new advanced concept bike for new generations. That was Fabien's biggest and complete project at TVS MOTOR.

From October 2016 till January 2020, Fabien has been assigned as Head of Advanced Design & Trend Research at HERO MOTOCORP.
Fabien's main role was to design an entire range of sub-500cc motorcycle line up for 2020-2022, for the fast growing Indian market as well as globally.

In the meantime, and for the sake of the new HeroMotocorp's era, Fabien has created a new design story that he pushed further for the brand, which allowed him to also design the new Hero Dakar Rally bike 2018, ready to fight for the toughest race in the world!

To design and develop the Dakar machine as well as the other concepts and production models, Fabien was living a double GMT life  between Hero's CIT [Center of Innovation and Technology] in India [Jaipur and Germany [Munich] where the partner Speedbrain was located with other engineering contractors like EDAG and HOFFER. 
It has been 3.5 years of hectic schedule fourth and back between the two countries by working remote or physically, on one side or the other with all the different teams.
The hard work and dedication to deliver the project in such a context has been a successful step forward for the company to open the HTCG [Hero Tech Center Germany - equals to the Hero R&D Center in Europe]. 

Recently, beginning of 2020, HeroMotocorp has revealed their sub-500cc ADV prototype which is the first model of the production line-up that Fabien has created.

In November 2019, Fabien resigned from his most achieved position at HeroMotocorp and on February 2nd 2020, after 11 consecutive working years in India,, Fabien decided to turn his most incredible life chapter so far and left the wide and growing country to come back closer to his beloved family in Europe.

Beginning of February 2020 Fabien has registered REDSTER-DESIGN Limited in the UK and he is mainly contracting for CHD Design Works, one of the most valuable and famous motorcycle design studio in United Kingdom.
