A luxury touring motorcycle, made towards the end of motorcycle manufacture by NSU, who in 1962 were the largest m/c maker in the world.They then concentrated on car manufacture with a model named Prinz initialy with a two cylinder motor based on the Max’s camshaft drive arrangement ,and later marketed the first Wankel powered saloon car ,the Ro80.This model gave NSU serious cash flow problems due to the large warranty claims on the Wankel motor.This car was then quietly dropped and motorcar production cotinued under a new name Audi… which continues to the present.

Thanks to Michael Fall for this picture of his NSU Supermax.

    How difficult it is to get parts for this? New tank, pipe and silencer needed. What about other parts? My bike is in original condition but parts are rusty and chrome parts not in good shape.
