MZ history

Motorradwerk Zschopau (Chopau Motorcycle Plant) - a motorcycle factory in the city of Chopau (Germany).

The production of motorcycles under the DKW brand by Zschopauer Maschinenfabrik J. S. Rasmussen at the machine-building plant in Chopau, acquired in 1906, began in 1922. After the Second World War, the enterprise appeared on the territory of the GDR. Part of the equipment from the enterprise was exported to Izhevsk for reparations, where it was used to master the production of the Izh-350 motorcycle - copies of the DKW NZ-350.

 

In 1950, production of the pre-war model RT 125 was restored at the nationalized enterprise, which became part of the Association of Vehicle Manufacturers in the German Democratic Republic (IFA). In 1952, the company was renamed VEB Motorradwerk Zschopau and began producing motorcycles under the MZ brand in 1956.

 

The company mass-produced motorcycles with engine volumes from 125 to 350 cm3. MZ motorcycles were notable for their simple construction, high reliability and were in demand not only in the countries of the socialist camp, but also in Western Europe. They were shipped to about 100 different countries. In a limited quantity (the largest consignment of 700 units was purchased in 1957, in the future deliveries usually did not exceed 100 units per year) MZ motorcycles (mainly sports) were imported into the USSR. A number of MZ motorcycles were imported into the USSR by citizens working in the GDR, for example, officers of the Western Group of Forces. The number of employees at the enterprise reached 3,000 people, and the annual volume of motorcycle production was 85,000. In 1983, the two-millionth MZ motorcycle model ETZ 250 was launched.

MZ motorcycles have successfully performed in motorcycling. An important role in this was played by the engineer Walter Kaaden, who worked at Motorradwerk Zschopau, who developed the original design of a two-stroke engine with inlet disk spools. The company produced motorcycles for circuit racing with engine displacement of 50, 125 and 250 cm3. In 1958, Horst Fyugner won the Swedish Grand Prix in circuit racing at the MZ RE 250. At the end of the year, Fyugner became a bronze medalist. In 1959, the Rhodesian Gary Hawking at the MZ became the silver medalist of the season. In 1961, MZ team racer Ernst Degner fled to the West, transferring the achievements of MZ racing motorcycles to Japanese companies. For the 1963 season, Yamaha prepared the RD 56 motorcycle, very similar to the MZ RE 250. Soon, the Suzuki team also acquired the MZ clone. Since the budget of the MZ sports team was 50 times smaller than that of Japanese companies, it began to fail. The situation was aggravated by the refusal to issue visas to athletes from the GDR by NATO countries. In this regard, VEB Motorradwerk Zschopau in the early 70s decided not to participate in circuit races and switched to enduro competitions, where they also achieved significant success. The MZ team won the World Enduro Championship in 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1969 and 1987.

 

In 1991, the company was privatized. Between 1992 and 1999, the company's products were manufactured under the MuZ brand (from Motorrad und Zweiradwerk - a manufacturer of motorcycles and other two-wheeled vehicles). In 1999, it was returned to its former name MZ.

 

From 1996 to 2001, MZ motorcycles under license were produced in Turkey under the brand name MZ Kanuni.

 

After the unification of Germany, demand for the company's products began to fall. Since 1991, the plant has been unprofitable. The development of new models did not save the situation. In 1996, the company was acquired by the Malaysian concern Hong Leong. In September 2008, motorcycle production at the enterprise ceased. December 12, 2008 the plant was closed. In March 2009, the plant was bought by former motorcycle racers Ralph Waldman and Martin Wimmer. Attempts to revive the MZ brand, the last of which was undertaken in 2013, were unsuccessful. The production of spare parts for MZ motorcycles is maintained by MuZ Vertriebs GmbH.
