Tomos is a famous Slovenian brand based in the city of Koper. Tomos has produced various goods for the Eastern European market, including motorcycles, cars, mopeds, Outboard motors and boats. Of which, mopeds are the most well known. Tomos acquired a license to produce existing moped models from Puch under the Tomos name. Tomos once produced Citroën and Renault cars for the home market.

Tomos moped's are also produced in Epe, the Netherlands since 1966. A very good-selling model was the Tomos "4L", produced from 1969 until 1980. The Dutch development team is responsible for the introduction of models like the Colibri, Targa and Revival. Tomos is the last remaining moped factory in the Netherlands, surviving at least 36 others since 1966.

Tomos in the Slovene language is an acronym for 'TOvarna MOtornih koles Sežana, meaning Motorcycle Company Sežana. Despite TOMOS being the only true Moped supplier for the US market, the brand remains strong and reliable with many innovations. Repair is cheap and simple-considering that a new unit only costs around $1099 to $1899 USD delivered.

The Statement that the moped factory was closed in November 2007, because it was not longer competitive against Chinese and Indian producers caused a stir for several days in the TOMOS moped community. This is inaccurate. following the links provided show that there was a problem in translation; TOMOS dealers and websites concur that TOMOS is NOT ending production; it is outsourcing parts. [ [
