Sherco History

The name Sherco derives from combing two words, Bultaco & Sherpa…SHER-CO.

Sherco motorcycles is particularly oriented towards off-road bikes. This French company is headquartered in Nîmes France and was created by Marc Tessier 21 years ago in 1998. The strategic choice was to create two plants, each producing a range of products which are specific and diametrically opposed to each other. Thus, the Spanish factory in Barcelona which was founded in 1998 specializes in the trial category, while the French factory, which was established in 2003, specializes in the rest of the production.  The company designs and produces off-road motorcycles in a niche sector, specifically the trials and enduro market. The Sherco range currently consists of nearly twenty different vehicles. The range is divided into two main categories, enduro and trial. The trial category consists of five models with displacements from 80 to 300 cubic centimeters and are all equipped with 2-stroke motors. The enduro category, meanwhile, consists of twelve 4-stroke models with displacement of 250 to 500 cubic centimeters, and nine 2-stroke models with displacement of 125 to 300 cubic centimeters
