DKW RT 3 hp, 1938

In 1934 DKW launched a new small motorcycle at a very moderate price, the 2.5-horsepower RT 100. In 1936 its power output was raised to three horsepower. The RT 3 PS, as the more powerful version was then known, was not only a reliable, straightforward motorcycle for day-to-day riding but also proved successful in competition. By 1940, almost 62,000 had been sold.
