Jurisch Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Karl Jurisch of Liepzig, a racer/designer of the 1920s.


Built a four-cylinder water-cooled twostroke prototype, and a water cooled 248cc twin-cylinder supercharged racing machine which gained much recognition.

Jurisch was quite successful on the racing circuit, and also campaigned on Puch, Bekamo, DKW and other motorcycles.

There was a Jurisch microcar in the 1950s, also German but unrelated.
