NSU Fox 4-stroke motorcycle, 1949

The NSU Fox was intended to set the direction for modern NSU motorcycle production. Its compact yet powerful 4-stroke engine made the Fox look like a "real" motorcycle. Conspicuous was the modern central clamping frame, which was much more suitable for large-scale production that the conventional tubular frame. No other German motorcycle in the 100 cc class at the time was able to reach a speed of 85 km/h.
