1960 Pannonia 250 with Sidecar

The 1960 Pannonia TLF Deluxe 250 motorcycle was made in Hungary from 1951 to the 1970s. Also made by the Czepel works, the Pannonia motorcycles shared a similarity with Jawa designs. The Pannonia 250 was a 247cc 2-stroke built with either one or two cylinders. It was exported to several European countries. This example has been fully restored and matched with a rare aluminum Duna sidecar. It is on loan to the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.

Duh. I did a little more search and Google turned up a picture of the twin. But only one picture vs. a dozen of the singles. I am guessing it was made in much lower numbers than the single, but would appreciate any added facts about this.

I would really love to see some technical information on this design. I have seen some info on the 1-cyl 2-stroke but never on a twin. I submit rather than 2 cylinders, we are seeing 2 exhaust ports on a single? That was widely used for a time on Jawa/CZ models.
