A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured in Povážska Bystrica, Czechoslovakia 1948-1967
Manet was part of the nationalized Czechoslovakian motorcycle industry. The company produced 125cc scooters, and a single motorcycle model.
Their first model, powered by their own 88cc two-stroke engine, was designed by Vincenz Sklenar, and this was the basis for the Manet 90, their most popular model. The Manet S 100 motor scooter achieved a remarkable 100 miles per gallon. This was followed by the Tatran 125, probably their last model before being taken over by Jawa.
