German Motorcycle Tanks from World War II
Hitler’s contribution to the motorcycle industry throughout World War II is a pure showcase of the natzi leader’s idea of a “two-wheeled” vehicle. These were actually tanks with motorcycle-like riding position. Power came from an Opel Olympia four-cylinder motor developing 36 hp and being capable of moving the tanks with a top speed of 35 mph, so imagine the weight of these things. Created for mountain hunter corps, these war machines were capable of dealing with a 46-degree inclinement angle. So I guess that Hitler’s Honda VFR is out of the question?
