Broler was a motorcycle produced from 1920 to 1922.

The company of Brooks, Tasler and Cox was based in Narborough, Leicestershire. Their slogan was: 'You will never tire a Broler'.

At the beginning of the 1920s they promoted a 349cc two-stroke engine, which formed the basis of their short-lived motorcycle. The engine was a three-port type but, for ease of running, it featured ball-and-roller bearings throughout.

The firm changed its name to Broler Motors and sold the engine to other companies that assembled machines. This kept them afloat for a while, until business dried up.
