Pannonia was the best-known motorcycle manufacturer from Hungary. Produced between 1951 and 1975, Pannonia sold just under 700,000 bikes. An American importer based out of Santa Ana, CA called White Motorcycles private-labeled Pannonia’s to sell in the US. The Pannonia P20 was a 250cc two-stroke that was based on a DKW model. As Yamaha had also cloned the DKW, the Pannonia looked an awful lot like the contemporary Yamaha of the time.

The P20 was introduced in 1970 – the new twin cylinder engine produced 23 horsepower. Production lasted until the company went under in 1975, and it was pretty much unchanged through this time. A 5-speed gearbox enabled this bike to attain a top speed of 75 mph.

The seller has left a surprisingly detailed history of this specific Pannonia P20. He’s very knowledgeable about the brand, and has owned several during his riding career. He bought this bike sight unseen from a restorer, and it won 2nd place at the Del-Mar Concourse d’Elegance Show in the Continental European Division. It’s hard enough to find a Pannonia in decent shape nowadays, let alone concourse condition. As it has sat for nearly a decade, a few minor issues should be taken care of before you start it up, but the seller takes some time to describe what needs to happen.
