Dnepr Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

KMZ Kyivskyi mototsykletnyi zavod, manufactured in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Some 1.5 million Dnepr machines were built for the armed forces of the USSR.

As of 2001, Kyiv Motorcycle Factory in Ukraine manufactures Dnepr MT-11 and MT-16 motorcycles, which are modified by the importer in Seattle, USA.

Please Note This is NOT a Russian motorcycle. It is Ukrainian. The name is sometimes given as Dneipr.

Certificat of conformity
Dnepr K750 year 1967 Dnepr K750 year 1967
Dear Sir,
I bought a used Side car Dnepr K750 in France. But I have a problem on my French registration document, it's writen SOLO instead of SOLO SIDE. That the reason why I need a certificat of conformity to go to French officiel offices with, in order to put SOLO SIDE on my registration document, instead of SOLO only. (SOLO only writen on my French registration document does not allow me to drive with Side car in France).
Thanks a lot.

Hello, I would like to point out 2 of your mistakes. First Dniepr(Dnipro)is a Ukrainian bike. Second, it is Ukraine not THE Ukraine. I hope you would take some time to ensure the hystorical and geographical correctness.

Correction (clarification) requirement
Dnepr (Dnipro)
Dear Sirs,

I'm approaching you due to incorrect info to be placed on your web-site part, which is dedicated to the list of motorcycle producers. The matter is that Dnepr (Dnipro in Ukrainian transliteration) is not a Russian model or smth, but a trade mark of Ukrainian producer - KMZ (Kyivskyi mototsykletnyi zavod = Kyiv [Kiev] motorcycle factory). So I would like you to correct your information regarding this issue.

For further details, please, refer to URL: kmz.com.ua

Thank you in advance
