Motofrip was a scooter built to a design by Mrs. Olive Kent, between 1911 and 1912.

The machine was a three-wheel scooter exhibited at the 1911 Olympia show, on the Moto-Reve stand. It had a 1.25hp M-R engine with belt drive to the rear axle, but only one of the 10-inch wheels was driven. It had a loop frame, cycle forks and caliper front brake. There was a platform between the rear wheels for the rider to stand on.
