bet you didn't know that.
in 1885 gottleib daimler built only a solitary example. It was powered by a single-cylinder Otto-cycle engine, and may have had a spray-type carburetor. (Daimler's assistant, Wilhelm Maybach was working on the invention of the spray carburetor at the time).

Well................

Roper invented the first steam powered motorcycle in 1867. It sucked, but it's still a motorcycle. [:D]
