DKW SB 200 A, 1936
A new era in DKW‘s motorcycle manufacturing began in 1932. The loop scavenging principle largely solved the two-stroke engine‘s thermal problems, and the production of water-cooled motorcycles was halted. The SB 200, introduced in 1933, formed the basis for a new model line, with the SB 350 and SB 500 as the first additional models to appear. The SB 200 Luxus model on display, as the name implies, has certain luxury features: chromium-plated exhaust pipes, an instrument panel with speedometer and clock and a “dynastart” combined electric starter and generator.
