AJS S3 V-twin

The AJS S3 V-twin was a British motorcycle designed and built by the Wolverhampton, England company A. J. Stevens & Co. Ltd. Launched in 1931, the AJS S3 was a 496 cc transverse V-twin tourer with shaft primary drive (but chain final drive), three speed bevel driven gearbox and alloy cylinder heads. The 50 degree V configuration was effective for air cooling and with a tank top 'dashboard' was conceived as a luxury cruiser. It had been expensive to develop and at £65 was more expensive than the 1000cc AJS of the same year,[1] so the S3 did not sell in large numbers and by the end of 1931 AJS had gone into liquidation and been taken over by Matchless motorcycles who discontinued production.[2]
