Lot Details
From a Prominent European Collection,
1957 Victoria R200 Motor Scooter
Frame no. 472
Engine no. R313
In Post-War Germany, a market for economical transport arose due to the quantity of people who needed to cover more miles than a moped or typical scooter could manage. Machines like the Heinkle Tourist and the Victoria offered here filled this need. With their larger displacement engines and more robust construction, these machines were capable of longer distances and carrying a passenger.

This big Victoria 200cc was a capable family machine; it had plenty of power and could carry two at good speed. Equipped with large, spoked motorcycle wheels it was clearly intended for use beyond the scope of a normal scooter.

This machine seems to have covered quite a few miles in its day and is complete with tourist decals all over the front fender.
