Engineering from the north of Germany

The foundation of the Neander motor vehicles GmbH in 2003 by Philipp Hitzbleck build the base for our current business . The company’s goal was a small series of turbocharged diesel motorcycle with the twin crankshaft . Only two years later the first registration of the Neander – the world’s first turbo diesel motorcycle – take place.

In 2007 the GmbH was transformed in the NEANDER MOTORS AG.

Merely three years later – 2009 – the ingenuity of the idea had been recognized e.g. by the Schmidt-Römhild Technology-Award presented by the Ministry of Science, Economy and Traffic of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

NEANDER MOTORS AG: Winner of the Schmidt-Römhild-Technology Award for 2009.
NEANDER MOTORS AG: Potential participant for the “Woche der Umwelt 2012”


The development of the first application of Neander technology took place in the same year – in 2009 Neander Shark GmbH was founded as a 100% subsidiary of the NEANDER MOTORS AG. The purpose of the company is to develop the world’s first turbo diesel outboard engine under 100 hp: The NEANDER Dtorque.

For more information, look at the Neander Shark website and visit our NEANDER Dtorque Landingpage.
