An ancillary of the Russian Izhevsk Mechanical Works Corporation, the first IZH motorcycle rolled off production in 1928 and was called IZh 1. This machine came complete with a 1200cc engine which was created by Pyotr Vladimirovich Mokharov, an engineer. It had a 24 horsepower output, a feat that was ahead of its time.
The IZh 1 paved the way for more and improved models to be manufactured. These included IZh 2, IZh 3, IZh 4, and five additional models that competed in the All-Union Motorcycle Race. Once the race was over, the company decided to enhance the IZh 4 for mass production. This plan, however, fell through because the parent company had different plans.
In the 30s, the company did not manufacture any street models. However, it continued designing prototypes until 1940 when it finally designed and manufactured the IZh 9 model. This was to be the manufacturer’s first mass-produced motorcycle. They worked on it from 1946 to 1948 and produced the 14 hp IZh-350 C model that featured a front telescopic fork.
IZh engineers finished developing the IZh-50 Sport motorcycle in 1950 but introduced the IZh-49 officially the following year. In the 1950s, the company continued to produce motorcycles. A couple of IZH machines, IZh 54 and IZh 54A, became quite popular.
The company began developing the IZh-Jupiter model in 1958 and the machine was shown at the World’s fair. In 1961, IZH decided to develop the bike for mass production. The motorcycle came complete with an engine that was capable of producing 19 horsepower. This model became quite popular and the Russian company reckoned it could introduce a new model which is named IZh-Jupiter 2.
The manufacturer began producing more complex motorcycles in the 1980s. In order to achieve its objectives, the firm moved to a new production facility which was larger than the previous one. The IZh-Jupiter 4 was the first motorcycle to be manufactured in the new facility and the IZh-Planeta-4 was introduced in 1982. A new model, the Jupiter, was launched in 1985. It included new features such as a standby button which is common in the contemporary motorcycle.
