Footnotes

  • In November 1885, Daimler created the first internal combustion motorcycle by installing a smaller version of his single, one-cylinder 'Otto-cycle' horizontal engine into a wooden frame with two outrigger wheels. His partner, Wilhelm Maybach, rode it for roughly two miles reaching speeds of 7 miles per hour. Gottlieb Daimler is also credited for the first automobile in 1886.
