DKW, a German firm based Southwest of Dresden, provided the German military with one of its more popular motorcycle types, the NZ350. Of a largely conventional design, the model was powered by a 1-cylinder 346cc 2-stroke engine that provided road speeds of 62 miles per hour (100 kph) with ranges out to 217 miles (350 kilometers). The vehicle weighed 377lb (171 kilograms) and primarily served in the dispatch role - though a soldier could find many uses for this fast-moving system.

The NZ350 was noted for its cross-country capabilities, ruggedness and agility and purchased in quantity for the war years (1939-1945).
