A Swedish-made scooter

This time we will discuss a scooter made in Sweden, one of the Scandinavian countries. The scooter in question was produced by Monark, a bicycle, moped, and motorcycle manufacturer that has a production base in Varberg, Sweden.

This Swedish manufacturer was founded in 1908 by an industrialist named Birger Svensson. This manufacturer is also known as Cykelfabriken Monark AB and Monark AB. It is estimated that the first motorcycle of this manufacturer rolled out in 1913. But, there is also a mention of its first motorcycle made in 1908 because this manufacturer is also known to produce a lot of motorcycles under various brands before using their own brand.

For scooters, the company originally made a moped called Monark Monarscoot. This two-wheeled vehicle was designed by Sixten Sason, also known as the famous SAAB automotive designer. This is one of the moped models that in terms of design has its own characteristics. 

At the beginning of its born in 1957, this two-wheeled vehicle used a German's ILO engine with pedals such as bicycles as well as using the high-wheels like a motorcycle in general.

But along with the time of its development, when in 1961 when a new Sweden rules stating that the mopeds were no longer required to have pedals. So the Monark Monarscoot got its footrest and kickstart since then the model deserves to be called as a scooter.

As mentioned above, an early model of Monark Monarscoot production in 1957 that used the ILO engine with pedals (as a moped). Then for the next model (which can be called a scooter) was roled out in 1965-1968 using the Husqvarna "Flinta" engine. For this model, it uses 10'' wheels sized, which also makes it looks like the Italian scooters.
From then on the competitor, Husqvarna, licensed the Monarscoot and marketed it under their own name. (Picture from: https://bit.ly/2Bc7GeO)
From then on the competitor, Husqvarna, licensed the Monarscoot and marketed it under their own name. Then the use of the engine changed again for the model produced in 1969 which is the final year of production, where it uses the Sach engine.
Although the production of Monarscoot scooters had to end in 1969, due to intense competition in the global motorcycle market at that time, the Swedish manufacturer continued to produce motorcycles, especially sport motorcycles, until the manufacturer actually stopped producing in 1975.😭
