Having taken as the pilot model the English motorcycle BSА-600 SLOWPER of 1930 and, having brought in its design a number of essential improvements (tubular combined team from 13 elements a frame, German system of an arrangement of levers, etc.), the factory gave armies on those times the most powerful (16,5 h. p.) a domestically produced motorcycle.
