Until 1910, this motorcycle company adopts single cylinder engine and in that year they started using V-twin engine 800 cc. Furthermore, this machine is developed into a 1,000 cc and began to leave the belt and move on to the chain to move the rear wheel in 1913. Soon after, a three-speed transmission was adopted, replacing the single acceleration unit that has been used previously.

The next advancement was the "Big Valve Motor", they use the valve diameter 2 1 / 8 "successful in racing events and is able to break the record speed of 100 miles per hour in 1912.
