Moto Reve were established in Geneva, Switzerland in 1904, continuing in motorcycle production until 1925.

They manufactured in the UK at Alperton, Middlesex

1914-15 The Alp motorcycle was a Swiss design with limited production, built under licence, from Moto-Reve, in Middlesex. Its main purpose was to fill a need for transport during the early years of World War I. It had a 2hp 199cc four-stroke V-twin engine with an overhead inlet valve. The exhaust pipe ran from the rear of the engine. There was no sign of the machine in 1915, but it made an appearance in 1916 - probably with a 3hp two-stoke engine.

Later Alperton Motor Co
