Powered by a 1,200 cc, 40-brake horsepower in-line four-cylinder engine, the KJ Streamline was able to reach speeds of over 100 mph. Its streamlined design, a rarity in the world of motorcycles at the time, was the brainchild of American Orley Ray Courtney, who believed that the motorcycle industry should provide more protection and luxury for its riders.
