In the year of 1886, a German based Motorcycle Manufacturer was founded in Schweinfurt. This newly found Motorcycle Company was to be later named, Sachs. The Sachs Motorcycle Company was said to be one of the world's oldest, but not obsolete motorcycle manufacturers. Its first motorcycle was created in 1940.
During 1960, the Sachs Motorcycle Company took over the Victoria Express as well as the DKW and started to provide the German Federal Armed Forces with their motorcycles by 1992.
The Sachs as a company had been contracted to create small, inexpensive Chinese-sourced scooters, which was not good in this modern period.
The Sachs' MadAss, a unique motorcycle, was said to be the most recent and real Sachs-engineered motorcycle produced.
The Sachs Motorcycle Company went into bankruptcy after a series of financial shortage events and in the end, saw a management buy out.
This problem of bankruptcy did not only help in continuing the marketing but also placed the Sachs Company in the position to create their latest models such was the breath-taking XTC125 which was revealed in Cologne last October 2006.
The Sachs Motorcycle Company still continues in production from their location in Schweinfurt.
