Imperial was a motorcycle produced between 1914 and 1915, in Saltley, Birmingham.
The machine had a 269cc two-stroke Metro engine with the option of a single- or two-speed transmission, using either direct-belt drive or a combination of chain and belt. It was fitted with either Brampton Biflex or Druid forks.
Although the model continued into 1915, war time was a bad period in which to launch a new make, so it was soon gone from the market.
