Rohr Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque

The business was established in 1948 when Röhr gained a franchise as a VW wholesaler.

Initially he was very successful, since Röhr machinery was exported to most of Europe along with Ireland, Brazil, Turkey, Iran and to several South American countries.

In 1952 they created a scooter capable of 110 km/h.

It was built from 1952 to 1957 by Fahrzeug & Machinen Fabrik Landshut in Bavaria, using the 200cc Ilo single cylinder engine with four-speed transmission.

The tubular cradle frame was designed to facilitate mounting a sidecar and it had a bench type dual seat. Fitted with 12v electrics, it had turn indicators which were an uncommon feature for the day.

Options included a luggage carrier and spare wheel.

It is believed that around 1800 units were produced.
