ww2dbaseThe K800 motorcycles were the heaviest vehicles produced by the firm Zündapps. They were often seen with sidecars attached, which increased the overall weight of each vehicle from 210 kilograms to about 230 kilograms, depending on the type of sidecar used. Production of K800 began in 1933 and ended in 1938. The majority of the K800 motorcycles built were of the K800W variant (1933-1938), at 550 examples, which was sold exclusively to the German military. A number of them were sold to the Nationalist Chinese military, which had a close cooperation with Germany until 1937.
