AN IDEA WAS BORN
In the spring of 2018, two old friends, Philippe Stella and motorcycle professional Jeroen-Vincent Nagels, worked together on the Saroléa N60 MM.01 project in a small cottage in Cadaqués beautiful small coastal village near Barcelona. Outside work they rode vintage dirt bikes to fetch groceries and play around on the sandy roads nearby.
This gave them the idea that a modern and clean interpretation of such a bike would be the perfect toy for a place like that, but it would also be the ideal alternative to small-wheeled scooters in larger cities, and so an idea was born. One year later, during the launch of MM.01 at The Bike Shed Show in London, Stella pitched the idea to Torsten Robbens, from Saroléa, while watching a mini dirt track race.
This took the whole thing to another level. Some experiments took place and the name Trevor was registered in honor of JV’s favorite British sportscar - TVR Rob Mitchell, from Saroléa, brought in John McInnis as the perfect guy to design the first full-electric Trevor dirt-tracker with knowledge from those test cases. In early 2020, John’s design of the Trevor Stella was ready and Saroléa began production.
The Trevor team grew in the meantime with Joop Wanten from The Mighty Machines and motorcycle professional, also from Saroléa, Greg Hauret-Clos.
Alongside the development of the few riding prototypes, a limited run of Trevor Founder Series was sold.
