From 1940 the Zündapp factory focused on the production of motorcycles for the Wehrmacht, particularly the KS750 model with a driven sidecar wheel.

The first units appeared in May 1941, and it continued in production until May 1945.

The KS 750 saw service with the Wehrmacht all fronts - Africa, Russia, France, Italy - and proved extremely reliable and versatile.
