We started the business by selling Tomos parts and producing them in the yard of our house, our office was in the garage... Every day we worked and built our initially small business. In a very short time we started to hire additional workers. Year after year we have been expanding the warehouse capacity and therefore the number of employees. Today we have over 50 employees, and we deal with the sale and production of spare parts for motorbikes, motorcycles, scooters, gardening and woodworking tools. Our business is precisely in these two fields - the sale of motorcycle parts and equipment, and the sale of gardening and woodworking equipment and spare parts.
HISTORY OF THE COMPANY
It all started with the enthusiasm of a two-wheeler admirer, our founder Igor Jovičić. Igor fell in love with motorbikes at an early age, like many youngsters, but he was faced with difficult and limited opportunities to maintain and service them, and was forced to visit shops and markets in the region in order to find a part that would suit him. In that period, Igor recognized the need for spare parts for Tomos mopeds and with the help of his father, a mechanical engineer, decided to make the first tools for the production of spare parts and to venture into entrepreneurial waters in 1999 in Kać.
2001 - the first retail store was opened After several years of production, in 2001, the first retail store was opened in Novi Sad, at Kisačka 52, where it still operates today. Two years later, in 2003, a wholesale store was opened in Kać, at the address where the production was also located. Ten years after its establishment, Moto Bike imported parts from Europe for the first time and year after year it has been expanding the offer of world-famous brands in the motorcycle world.
2009 - the first WEB shop was started
Moto Bike entered the online market in 2009 by opening of the first web shop. In 2011, we started investing in online marketing and in the growth of the web shop.

In 2015, due to the expansion of the product range to several sales programs and the increase of the Warehouse space, as well as of the number of employees, Moto Bike moved to a new facility at the address Svetosavska 70a, in Kać. The warehouses are organized in several sectors, for easier finding and packaging of goods
2018-2019 was marked by creative innovations.
Given that we have been offering spare parts and equipment for gardening and woodworking for years, we came up with the idea of creating our own brand that will offer our customers quality devices. The challenge we set was not easy at all, but we did not give up. After a detailed examination of the devices that would represent our brand – THORP was created
The business and packaging processes themselves have been improved and modernized, In order to
pick goods, we use PDA devices which are connected to the entire electronic business system, the bookkeeping program and the online shop. Every year, the company visits world-famous motorcycle fairs
both in China and in Europe
