Revolution were motorcycles produced from 1904 to 1906, in Birmingham.

In 1904 The company offered a conventional model with a 2½ hp engine hung beneath the frame downtube. It also had belt drive and braced forks.

The following year they added a forecar, listed as the Revolette, using a Stevens water-cooled engine, two-speed gear and chain drive. The frame was built of channel steel and the engine was mounted in its own cradle.

Notes: This firm was sometimes also listed as New Revolution. The engine in the first model is possibly an NRCC.
