Founded in 1938, Detlev Louis Motorradvertriebs GmbH specialized in the import of motorcycles in the first decades. There is hardly a brand that we didn't have in our program at some point. As an active, international racing driver, company founder Detlev Louis optimized his machines and also offered this to his customers. Already in 1965 the first mail-order catalogue for accessories was published, since 1981 the branch network has been continuously built up and is constantly growing.
Today's headquarters with its highly automated dispatch logistics had to be expanded several times since the company moved into it in 1991. In the meantime, Detlev Louis Motorrad-Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH has become part of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and Europe's No. 1 for motorcycle clothing and technology.
