The German (1) Adria firm's main business was building engines for automobiles and boats. Their motorcycles utilised sidevalve singles of 276cc and 346cc. Another source says the engines were 276cc & 282cc. Early models were single-speed belt drive, later models had three speed gearboxes.

Some engines were supplied by Lutz. (SF)
