Theme: The history of motorcycle development
At the end of the 18th century, human beings derived the inspiration to design the motorcycle from the bicycle because the successful development of the gasoline engine provided the power source to the development of the motorcycle.
In 1885 there was a German named Daimler who invented the first motorcycle which was powered by the gasoline engine, which was dubbed as “motora weirad”.
In the next year, 轮德卜拉得and 乌甫苗拉 developed the in-line double-cylinder and water-cooling four-stroke gasoline engines with the cubic capacity of 1488C and the power of 1.84kW, which were later equipped with the motorcycles, so the first batch of mass-produced motorcycles thus came into the world.
In the 20th century, several large-scale wars broke out in the world, so as the main transport means, the motorcycle gained immense development.
The development of the motorcycle underwent unimaginable upheavals for more than 100 years. In different historical periods, the motorcycle played its unique role and even today the development of all kinds of other transport means has far surpassed that of the motorcycle, yet the motorcycle still finds its wide application in various fields, such as, communication, transportation, leisure and sports, etc., and still represents a very importance mark of the human walking civilization.
Theme: The history of motorcycle in China
On April 27, 1958 Jinan Bicycle Fitting Factory (the predecessor of China Qingqi Group Co., Ltd) manufactured “Satellite Brand” moped motorcycles which were equipped with the single cylinder gasoline engine, and moreover the motorcycled was characterized by the low fuel consumption / 100 km being of only 1.2 liters and light weight, approximately 5kg heavier than the ordinary bicycles, thus it could be ridden by manpower. Yet it marked the birth of the first lightweight and portable motorcycle for daily use in China.
In September 1964, Jinan Bicycle Fitting Factory (the predecessor of China Qingqi Group Co., Ltd) took Type 50 Jawa motorcycle engine jointly developed by the former Soviet Union and Czech as the prototype and produced the three earliest Type 50 motorcycles in China with reference to the form of a bicycle for the parade of the 15th anniversary of Jinan City’s National Day Celebration. At that time, it was dubbed as Qingqi 15C. From then onwards, “Qingqi” became a synonym for “Made-in-China” motorcycles and in 1980 the factory broke through the annual production volume of 10 thousand vehicles.

China Qingqi Group Co., Ltd is the earliest and largest technological partner of Suzuki
The birth and development of China’s motorcycle manufacturing industry are closely associated with China Qingqi Group Co., Ltd because it paid close attention to the latest achievements of the world manufacturing industry as a pioneer in China and took the initiative to participate in the research of the technology of the most fundamental frontier so as to seek ingenuous innovation and development, and it was China Qingqi that took a lead in joining hands with the world-famous enterprise Suzuki for technological cooperation, grafting the most advanced technology in the world into China and boosting the development China’s motorcycle development at a faster pace.
China Qingqi distinguished itself by integrating the resource advantages, maneuvering the global expansion strategy, persistently seeking the ingenuous innovation and taking the path of product diversity and scale, thus developing itself into a pioneer in the motorcycle industry as an extra large conglomerate engaged in the trans-regional, trans-trading and transnational business operation by combining R&D, trading, commerce and agriculture with its own strength. At present the conglomerate ranks itself in the first place in terms of various economic indexes, respectively, production volume, sales revenues, tax and profit and earning foreign exchange through export and also plays a vital role as one of the rare leading brands in the motorcycle manufacturing industry all the way in terms of its development momentum and comprehensive strength.
