Reyre-Newson was a motorcycle produced in 1921 by S. C. Newson of Stamford Hill, London.

A machine was designed that had a single-cylinder ohv four-stroke engine of 63 x 80mm (249cc), in which the two vertically disposed valves were operated from a single face cam, located at the top of a vertical shaft. This was bevel-driven from the crankshaft on the offside.

The machine was successful in speed events as it was a neat lightweight, but the venture was short-lived.
