Dyson-Motorette was a motorcycle produced from about 1920 to 1922.

It was an early attempt to produce a scooter and was very short-lived. It was designed with the weight around the rear wheel, the 1.5hp engine on one side and the fuel tank above. In future years the Vespa would be fairly similar in design.
