The NZ350, the bigger companion of the NZ250, is intended for the motorcyclist who demands the utmost in power and speed. He will thrill to the wonderful road holding qualities made possible by the well designed suspension, which permits travelling at high speed even on bad roads. The front spring is twice the length of that of last year's model! With this machine you will be able to travel at an average speed which you have thought impossible heretofore.

An oil level indicator provided with two marks permits checking the oil in the gear box.

The combined hand and foot gearchange, with which all DKW machines are equipped, except RT and KS, offers the rider two completely separate ways of changing gear. To suit one's own personal taste or to meet particular operating conditions, either hand or foot may be used when changing gear, with the manual lever always showing which speed is engaged. Practically all larger engines are to-day provided with foot gear change, which has its advantages. But so has the manual gearchange! The best solution, however, is both systems combined, as exclusively used by DKW.
