From their introduction, the competition machines carried on side by side with the road bikes, looking very similar, but obviously their improvements were aimed at speed and handling whilst at the same time maintaining the reliability of the road machines.

As export markets grew, especially in North America, some models were developed specifically for these markets - although some escaped onto the home market. Many have since been re-imported to the UK shores, mainly the CS with lights and the G80TCS 'Typhoon'. In its day, this latter model, together with the G80CS, proved a success for desert racing and long distance enduro.

Lightweight

14CS and G2CS

Built in an attempt to carry on the sporting image and promote these totally new additions to the range, although probably the least successful of any competition machinery built by the factory. In both trials and scambles trim, these 'lightweights' were always too heavy and fragile to stand the abuse involved in competition.

These competition models were produced from 1959 to 1962.
