Champion Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by Champion of Radolfzell am Bodensee, Baden-Württemberg, 1926-1933.

Situated on beautiful Lake Konstanz, a stone's throw north of Zurich, the firm built some fifty racing and touring machines during one of the harshest economic periods the world had seen.

The sole survivor was built in 1926. It sports a 172cc Villiers "TT-Super-Sports" engine, and has been displayed at the Messkirch castle which has a vintage car museum.

N.B. Shortly after WWII, Hermann Holbein of Fahrzeugbau built a microcar powered by a TWN Triumph engine which he named "Champion".
