DKW KM 200, 1934

DKW motorcycles from Zschopau enjoyed great success, especially in the 200 cc class. These models, which were also described in advertisements as "people's motorcycles", were simple, robust and reliable utility motorcycles. With the KM 200, concept of the gearbox being block-mounted on the engine was implemented on a low-cost motorcycle. In 1935 an enhanced version of the KM 200 was launched with a twin-port engine (two exhaust systems). In 1936, engine power was increased to 7 hp.
