Bernon-Morelle was a motorcycle built in 1923.

This machine resembled a light car as is was two motorcycles joined side by side with a tubular structure. Each had a two-stroke Levis engine which drove a three-speed gearbox and the rear wheel by chain. It had sprung forks, a tubular frame and seats for two that were fitted between the linked forks of the machines. Panelling and a small door enclosed the works and gave it the appearance of a car. The two halves were were easy to separate.
