Werner 1901 review

Werner 1901, also known as New Werner, is a motorcycle produced by Werner brothers - Russian emigrants, who moved to Paris in the end of 19-th century. The engine capacity of this motorbike was 217 ccm. It was the first serial motorcycle with engine placed at lowest point of diamond frame (where bicycle would have pedals). The pedals, crank and redundant chain were relocated rearward and retained for starting and hillclimbing assistance  
With the speed of 48 km/h New Werner was the fastest motorcycle until the year 1911.
This motorcycle, produced in 1901, was not just successful. Its construction principle was used by other manufacturers and is still used nowadays.
