Titan Motorcycles of Austria

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufacturer: Grazer Motorenwerke AG
Puntigam near Graz

The first motorcycle built by Grazer in 1926 was designed by Karl Schüber as a twin-cylinder OHC 174cc road racer. He also designed a reed-valved twostroke of 350cc which was used in the first production Titan machines presented in late 1926.

The following year a sports model was introduced to the range, and this provided considerably greater performance than its major rival, Puch. In later years they introduced JAP and Blackburne-powered machines which complemented their own two-strokes.

The Titan became the second-largest motorcycle manufacturer in Austria, producing some 1400 units in the period 1927-1932.

Like so many other companies, the deepening global depression spelled doom for the great Austrian marque, and in 1932 it folded.
