The 1950s world champion motorcycle

For contemporary motorcycle enthusiasts, it is definitely not so familiar with the NSU brand, or simply called NSU. This German automotive manufacturer has formally name NSU 'Motorenwerke AG,' that produces cars, motorbikes and bicycles. This company has existed in the automotive industry since 1873 ago.

Before being taken over by the Volkswagen Group in 1969 (later combined with the Auto Union which is now known as Audi), NSU was noted to have launched a number of motorcycle products that were quite popular in its time. The manufacturer itself began making motorcycles in 1901, followed by car production four years later.

Of the many motorcycle products that have been born by NSU, one of the models that will not be timeless is the NSU Max model. This motorbike was first built in 1951. Until the end of production in 1956, NSU recorded successfully producing Max models of 96,373 units. Sufficient evidence shows how the best-selling motorcycle at this time.

Like the old motorbike in the 1950s, the NSU Max carries a very unique and very retro design. This motorbike comes with a round headlamp, a medium-sized fuel tank, a separate seat model with a "swinging" front seat, bamboo exhaust, and artificial front and rear suspension which both apply the concept of outside hydro shock absorber.

While for the drivetrain, the German company equipped the motorbike with an air/oil cooled 4-stroke OHC, single cylinder engine, with a capacity of 247cc. With this engine, the NSU Max is said to be capable of spitting out power of 11 kW at 6,500 rpm and a top speed of 126 km per hour. With exceptional performance, this motorbike even won the MotoGP event in 1955 when it was ridden by Paul Herman Muller.
Because it includes an old vintage motorcycle, it's no surprise that the NSU Max product is now offered at a high enough price. How much the price of this vintage motorcycle? Today its value around US. $3,850 or approx Rp.54 millions. Pretty much expensive motorcycle, isn't it?

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ]
