Hercules rotary motorcycle. The rotary powered hercules w 2000 motorcycle is real. The hercules company was founded in 1886 to produce bicycles by carl marschutz in nuernberg germany and began producing motorcycles in 1904. The hercules rotary and the re 5 suzuki are really 2 very different machines.

The hercules was so different from anything id ever seen before ron says. It was merged with zweirad union after being purchased by zf sachs in 1963. Hercules was a brand of bicycle and motorcycle manufactured in germany.

It was love at first sight. The hercules w2000 was the first ever production rotary engined motorcycle and for that reason deserves a place in history. I know this because i saw one with my own eyes at merks motor museum in nuernberg germany and im now fundamentally changed because of it.

The dkw w2000 is a rotary engined motorcycle that was sold under the name hercules w 2000 in all world markets outside the united kingdom it was the first rotary motorcycle in full production in the world and its engine would go on to form the basis of the norton rotary engined motorcycles that would be produced well into the early 1990s. 1975 hercules wankel all original survivor. This hercules wankel was the first production motorcycle equipped with the wankel rotary engine and represents an important part of motorcycle history the condition of this machine is highly original and un restored.

294 original miles vinframe 480000925 engine 7586712. In the 1950s and 1960s sachs was the largest european fabricator of two stroke motorcycle engines. This is a 1976 hercules w2000 rotary powered motorcycle in excellent condition.

It is an extremely rare motorcycle and very few 1976 w2000s were imported into the united states. It was also the first in a line of not undistinguished rotary engined motorcycling failures not because it was an inherently bad bike but for the simple reason that engineers believed their own hype. While they both had single rotor engines i think this hercules was air cooled and used pre mix gas 76 they had oil injection while the suzuki was bigger 500cc compared to hercules 300cc more refined liquid cooling and oil injection and twice the hp.
