The Motosacoche company was founded in 1899 by two extraordinary Swiss guys, Henri, and Armand Dufaux. The first product of the company was an unusual engine that looked like a triangle bag and was attached to the bicycleÔÇÖs frame, transforming it into the motorcycle imitation. ThatÔÇÖs how the company got its name – ÔÇťmoto-sacocheÔÇŁ literally translates as ÔÇťmotorcycle bagÔÇŁ.

Both brothers were great inventors and pioneers of aviation, but if one was fascinated by painting, the other was the first person to fly across the Leman lake. The popularity came to them unexpectedly, and there was an urgent need for opening of another factory in Italy and later in France. The ÔÇťmotor-bagÔÇŁ has gradually evolved into a real motorcycle engine, known as MAG.
