Torrot, a brand with a rich heritage dating back to 1948, was founded by Don Luis Iriondo in Vitoria, initially known for manufacturing sturdy bicycles. This company later evolved into producing mopeds and motorcycles under a licensing agreement with the French brand Dijon-Terrot, which led to the creation of Terrot S.A.E. However, after Peugeot's acquisition and subsequent closure of Terrot, Don Luis ingeniously transformed his business into Torrot by modifying the brand name, keeping his line of lightweight motorcycles and mopeds alive with a distinct identity.

Known for their durability and innovation, Torrot motorcycles, like the Mustang and TT models powered by Sachs engines, became popular in the 1970s. The brand was also notable for its pioneering features like the retractable sidestand and upward-facing exhaust pipe, earning a reputation akin to the Tucker of Spanish motorcycles. Additionally, Torrot manufactured popular bicycles, including the Cross MX, a precursor to modern mountain bikes.

Despite its success and innovation, Torrot faced challenges in the 1990s like many Spanish brands and did not survive the decade. However, in 2011, Torrot was reborn, this time with a focus on electric, sustainable transport solutions, rekindling its foundational values of practicality and enjoyment in mobility. Today, Torrot stands as a testament to the resilience and passion for motorcycle innovation, now pulsating with an electric heart and a commitment to environmentally friendly transportation.
