By 1944, the Soviet moto-engineers explored the captured German all-wheel drive BMW R-75 and Zündapp KS 750 and received an assignment from the Red Army command to create an own motorcycle with a sidecar wheel drive because there were no Soviet machines similar to the German ones. The new motorcycle was based on M-72, the Red Army’s war horse.
