"MECATWIN is an artisan brand created in 1986 by Franck DEPOISIER. It was, at the time, a workshop (already) specialized in the preparation of extraordinary motorcycles. In 1993, a year after the revival of the TRIUMPH brand, the team grew and we produced our first limited series, the X 90, a radical roadster that will have left its mark. This model opened the doors to the TRIUMPH factory in HINCKLEY for us, for which we worked a few years later after having created X COMPANY / MECATWIN, a fully autonomous 2000m2 structure, capable of designing and producing its own models: motorcycles."

"Whether it's a custom-made motorcycle or a model from a limited series, you will never be disappointed with our work. A now international reputation, which has always allowed us to work without artifice and without advertising with a clientele generated largely by “word of mouth”. A MECATWIN MUST be superior and our motorcycles all have in common to bring a real plus in driving pleasure. To date, more than three hundred MECATWIN motorcycles have been delivered."
