The 1914 Terrot & Cie. Motorette was advertised as the “Queen of Motorcycles” and renowned for its climbing ability. The single-cylinder engine was built by the Swiss firm Zédel and provided 2 3/4 hp from a likely displacement of 317 cc. This circa 1914 example is equipped with a suspension fork and shows a lovely patina. The Mullin Collection purchased the Motorette via the 2018 Artcurial auction at Retromobile in Paris.
