Waddon Performance Products
Waddon were motorcycles produced between 1981 and 1982, by Waddon Performance Products of Croydon, Surrey.
Early in 1981, the company staged a launch of their racing machines at a London show. The frame, the result of considerable development, was to accommodate a range of engines. It had a sceptical reception as it was similar, frame-wise, to the existing Foale, and did not appear at all practical.
Dr. Joe Ehrlich became involved in developing the 250cc Rotax tandem-twin two-stroke engine for Waddon, and after some further refinements, a Waddon won the 1982 Junior TT race for 250cc machines.
- Note: By 1983, the machine had become the EMC.
- Note: In 1970 Rotax-Werk AG, makers of the Rotax engines, was purchased by Bombardier and became Bombardier-Rotax GmbH
