French company Sherco was founded in 1998 by Marc Teissier, created out of his passion for moto trials. With riders like Spaniard Albert Cabestany and Briton Graham Jarvis joining the Sherco racing family, the company quickly developed a solid customer base.
With moto trials proving to be a great success, eventually a new enduro arm was added to the Nimes-headquartered company as it went about adding a larger footprint on the off-road landscape.
Veteran Jarvis, who had now made the switch to extreme enduro competition, was victorious in the famed Red Bull Romaniacs in 2008, and in the hotbed of world enduro racing Aussie Matt Phillips won Sherco its first ground-breaking title in 2016.
In recent years, Sherco has also added desert racing to its competition armoury, winning Dakar stages against strong opposition from European and Japanese manufacturers.
Shercos have always been built to exacting, high-quality standards, and it’s that blue-chip production process which has been the major catalyst for growth in the family-owned company over the last 23 years. In a nutshell, superb handling and premium performance have created an irresistible force.
In Australia, Melbourne-based Mojo Motorcycles, established in 2003, has been the official importer for Sherco motorcycles since 2014, with an initial line-up of two models now expanded to seven four-strokes and six two-strokes. There’s a combination of ‘Racing’ and up-spec ‘Factory’ models across both the two- and four-stroke line-ups. There are also four moto trials machines in the 250-300cc bracket.
