HISTORY

At the end of 1937, the Reich contacted Zundapp and BMW, two of the larger German motorcycle manufacturers. The German army demanded a bike that met the following criteria:
• Ability to carry a payload of 500kg (1,102.3lb), the equivalent of three fully equipped soldiers, including arms and ammo.
• It had to cruise at 80kmh (not quite 50mph) and be able to reach 95kmh (not quite 60mph) but also be able to crawl along at 3mph so as not to run over marching troops.
• The tires had to be 5.00in x 16in.
• Minimum ground clearance had to be 150mm (6in) and there had to be enough room under the fenders for snow chains.
• Cost was no object.

Zundapp and BMW both said “Jahwohl!” and hit the design boards. According to Hans-Peter Hommes, a German KS750 expert, Zundapp initially tried to modify its existing motorcycles, but soon realized that a ground-up design was needed.

The Feldgendarmerie (English: Field Gendarmerie, German: Feldjäger) were the uniformed military police units of the armies of the German Empire (including the Wehrmacht) from 1810 in Saxony until the conclusion of World War II.
