Douglas 1911 review


The Douglas 1911 HP Model WD 22 has a 349ccm SV flat twin frame engine. This Bristol-based firm developed the horizontally opposed fore-aft unit in 1907 and continued utilizing this engine layout well into the thirties. The earliest Douglas models had direct belt drive, but in 1910 a 2-speed gearbox was added with the control on top of the petrol tank. Douglas machines became very popular because of their light weight, easy starting and speed: in the 1912 Junior TT races Douglas took first, second and fourth places.
