Balkan was the first motorcycle built in Bulgaria, using a design similar to Jawa, starting in 1958. It is a product of the Number 12 factory and has a 250cc engine in a pressed steel frame; not dissimilar to the popular Czechoslovakian Jawa. A 50cc moped was in 1960 also among the "Balkan" products."
