DKW RT 250 H, 1952

By 1952 DKW was ready to introduce a 250 cc model, the 11 horsepower RT 250. It was extensively revised and improved two years later and given a stronger frame, plunger-type rear suspension and new brakes in full-width light-alloy hubs. The twostroke engine’s power output went up to 14 hp. The fully enclosed chain and the carburettor concealed within a shaped housing were typical visual features of DKW motorcycles from 1954 onwards.
