2022 Torrot Motorcycles Coming To America: First Look at Four Models

Motocross Two

Central Powersports Distribution (CPD) is importing Torrot electric motorcycles for kids into the United States. There will be four models brought in—two motocrossers and two trials bikes—covering an age range from 3 to 9 years old with weights up to 88 pounds.

Although unfamiliar to many American motorcyclists, Torrot is not a new company. Like many Spanish concerns, it has had a rocky history. Started in 1948 building bicycles, Torrot had popular small-displacement motorcycles in the 1970s. However, by the end of the 20th century, Torrot was no more. However, Torrot was brought back in 2011 and has R&D, engineering, and manufacturing departments at its factory in Girona in the northeast corner of Spain.

The 2022 Torrot Motocross Two and Trial Two are designed for the big kids, while the Motocross One and Trial One models are for smaller youngsters. The maximum weight on the One models is 66 pounds, while the Two motorcycles can handle 88 pounds.

Compared to the smaller Two models, the One models get a more powerful electric motor, a higher-capacity battery, longer rear suspension travel, and larger-diameter wheels.

Wheels and tires differentiate the Motocross from the Trial models. The Motocross bikes have Michelin StarCross tires, while the Trial gets proprietary block pattern Torrot Trial rubber. The Motocross Two has a 14-inch front wheel, compared to the 12-inch hoop on the Trial—both have 12-inch rear wheels. Both the Motocross One and Trial One run 10-inch wheels on both ends.

The Torrot minis are smart bikes with motor controllers programable via apps for iOS and Android. Adjustments are made for maximum power, top speed, throttle response, and regeneration level via the app. Additionally, power can be cut remotely. There’s also a power map switch on the motorcycles.

“We are very excited about this partnership to bring these high-quality electric motorcycles back to the US dealer network and consumer,” Mark Berg of CPD said. “We have all seen an extensive growth in popularity over the past couple of years for electric kids’ motorcycles, and even electric mobility product. Our previous experience with Torrot will be very beneficial, with the team, knowledge, and history already in place here in the USA.” CPD distributed and managed the Torrot brand in the United States from 2017 to 2019.
