Michel Rougerie (April 21, 1950 in Montreuil-sous-Bois - May 31, 1981 in Rijeka) was a Grand Prix motorcycle road racer from France.[1]

His best year was in 1975 when he won two races and finished in second place in the 250cc world championship behind his Harley-Davidson team-mate Walter Villa.[1] Rougerie actually scored more points than Villa that season, but because only the best six results of the season were counted, he lost the championship.

He was killed in 1981 while competing at the Yugoslavian Grand Prix.[2][3]
