Wanderer motorcycle 5,4 hp, Type H, 1927

In 1924, Wanderer introduced an unusual technical concept: the displacement of the 5.4 hp two-cylinder V-engine with its four-valve cylinder heads (two inlet and two exhaust valves per cylinder) was 708 cc, hence the model designation adopted for this new motorcycle, which had a power output of 15 horsepower. It was to be many years before the relatively complex principle of four valves per cylinder was to achieve a large-scale breakthrough. Wanderer, too, reverted to the conventional twovalve combustion chamber principle from 1927 onwards.
