DKW KS 200, 1937

In terms of engineering and price, the KS 200 was the direct successor to the KM 200. While the engine was taken unmodified from the 1936 KM model, the frame was reinforced and extended. Together with a larger, teardrop-shaped headlight, this gave this model the appearance of a much larger machine. In 1938, the engine was redesigned, incorporating measures that benefitted above all the thermal load capacity.
