Faced with declining sales in the important market sector for machines of up to 125cc (which could be ridden without a licence), Terrot revamped its '125' range for 1956, introducing the types EDL and EDV, both of which featured swinging-arm rear suspension. At the end of 1957 the 125cc range was further revised, with all models using a new twin-downtube cradle frame. There were now three offerings in the 125cc class: the basic Tenace, semi-enclosed Fleuron and sporting Ténor. All used the same four-stroke, overhead-valve engine, though with different power outputs, the most powerful and fastest being the Ténor, which had a top speed of 100km/h (62mph). Sadly, these new models were not enough to save Terrot, which was taken over by Peugeot in 1960. This un-restored example of one of Terrot's last motorcycles is offered without documents.
