Monnier Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

This history needs revision

Manufactured at 19 rue de Lyon, St-Etienne

The firm was established by J. Louison in 1898 and taken over by J. Monnier et Cie in 1924. They sold Hellessen motorcycles (possibly rebadged as Monier) in 1924, and earlier did the same with Alcyon.

From 1953 they built mopeds powered by Cucciolo 48 cc ohv engines.
