New Map Motorcycles

Solyto Three-wheelers

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: New-Map, 1945-1980s (under KV)

The voiturettes (three-wheel utility vehicles) had sheet-metal or tarpaulin covers and were powered by Ultima, Sotecma and Ydral engines. Engine supply was a considerable problem, for at the time many French engine manufacturers ceased production.

The Sotecma was a marine engine to which was added a newly designed New-Map gearbox.
