Gentil Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

France 1902-1904
Rue J.P. Timbaud Courbevoie (Seine) (After 1910)

The company was created in 1902 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, by Edmond Gentil, founder of Alcyon.

Early machines had a horizontal single-cylinder engine in front of the pedalling gear which gave the Gentil the look of a modern moped. They also produced V-twin motorcycles.

It is understood that machines under the Gentil brand were produced 1902-1904.
Gentil merged with or acquired Armor of Courbevoie in 1909, Olympique in 1922, Thomann of Nanterre in 1923, Labor of Courbevoie and the Parisian builder La Française Diamant in 1924. .
