1964 DKW Hummel

When the DKW Hummel motorcycle was first introduced to the public, the European motoring press dubbed it the “Tin Banana.” With a sleek, science-fiction shape and well-placed bright work, it was a definite step up from the humble moped. DKW motorcycles used 2-stroke engines which were technically advanced.

Hummel motorcycle uses drum brakes front and rear, an integrated fuel tank/head light and the engine sat concealed under a stylish shroud. Check out the interesting photos about DKW Hummel motorcycles below:
