Bitri Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured 1955-1964 by N.V. Dokkum using JLO and Rotax engines

Their first product was a small car powered by a pair of TWN (Triumph Germany) engines, hence the name BiTri. It was not a success, and the partners turned to scooter production. Their factory in Dokkum built most of the components in their workshops and produced several thousand scooters. They were the only Dutch scooter manufacturer.

Hans Kambier has kindly supplied a JLO MG 125VF and MG 150V engine parts manual, available on request.

  • Send what you have and I'll add it to the register.
The BITRI has been a “sticker” in the shop for many years. Build in1957 and game on the road for the first time in 1973.

I am the third owner since 1992
