Getting know the Adler automotive brand

At present, maybe some of you only know motorcycle manufacturers from Germany such as BMW Motorrad, Horex and many others. But did you know, in 1900 to shortly after the 2nd World war ended, there was one German brand that was considered very popular, namely Adler? Adler is German for eagle.

This German manufacturing company was founded in 1880 by Heinrich Klenyer in Frankfurt. The company started its business by producing various products such as bicycles, tricycles, and typewriters which later turned to produce cars, and motorcycles even aircraft engines.

During the production period of this German automotive manufacturer, there were many products of four-wheeled vehicles. And this indicates that the company was one of the leading automotive manufacturers before the war. (List of Adler's four-wheeled vehicles can be seen HERE.)

The oldest motorcycle product manufactured by the German manufacturer is the Adler 3PS motorcycle (pictured above), which is a bicycle driven by a De Dion engine that is capable of producing 2.5 PS of power. This two-wheeled vehicle was produced in 1902.

Interestingly, in 1944 when the world war was still raging and bombing by Allied forces against a number of industrial cities in Germany. And Frankfurt also did not escape the Allied bombing which resulted in the Adler factory in the city being ravaged.

However, the motorcycle production still to run. Even though at that time there were only a few machines and some equipment still functioning properly.

But after the second world war ended, this German manufacturer only produced motorcycles, instead of four-wheeled vehicles. At that time Adler was known to produce small motors for daily needs. Their motorcycle products were also famous for their toughness and durability.

There are six variants of motorbikes that have been produced by this German manufacturer, namely Adler 1902, Adler Favorit, Adler ISDT, Adler M-series, Adler MB-series and a scooter variant, Adler Junior M100 is used an air-cooled, two-stroke, 98cc, single cylinder engine. It claimed to produce power of 4 horsepower and mated to a three-speed manual transmission.

Unfortunately, despite having survived the war and bombing, but Adler had to surrender the economic conditions. In 1956 Adler merged with Triumph (TWN). The business was taken over by Grundig in 1957, and motorcycle production ceased in favor of office equipment, notably typewriters.
