Victoria is most known for producing motorcycles, although it has produced the Spatz, a microcar. Founded in 1886, the German company first produced bicycles, and in 1901 it dedicated to producing motorcycles. In the 1950s, Victoria bought the rights to Egon von Brutsch to produce the Spatz. The car was produced from 1957 to 1958. Victoria also attemped to produce a roadster version, but financial problems dictated otherwise. In that same year, Victoria merged with DKW to become the Zweirad Union. In 1966, the company was bought by Herculas, which terminated the Victoria badge.
