Imperial Metro

Imperial Metro was a motorcycle produced in 1914 and 1915, in Saltley, Birmingham.

This was the name by which the Metro was known in its early days.

The machine had a 269cc two-stroke Metro engine with the option of a single- or two-speed transmission, using either direct-belt drive or a combination of chain and belt. It was fitted with either Brampton Biflex or Druid forks.

Although the model continued into 1915, as the war intensified sales rapidly decreased and the marque vanished.
