Another exhibition “Motors of War” was held in Moscow recently. We are going to show you some pictures of the event focusing on motorcycles. They were in the minority and it makes them even more interesting to see.
M-72. Soviet heavy motorcycle was designed since 1939 with a glance to German BMW R-71. It was produced since 1941 to the 1950s. Five German BMW R-71 had been secretly bought in Sweden to make similar motorcycles.
The motorcycles were produced in Kharkov and Irbit, Leningrad for some time as well.
