At the turn of the century, the clatter of horse’s hooves was suddenly replaced by the rumble of 4-stroke engines. Husqvarna produced bicycles like "La Draisine", "The Bone-shaker", "The Hi-Wheeler", "The Kanguru", "The Giraff" and "The Crypto-machine". In the five-year period from 1897 to 1901, the Husqvarna production included 4,916 bicycle units. Now, we see a lot of new inventions appealing to a hungry market with people starving to get a decent ride. In the beginning, there was suspicion and ridicule from a lot of people. However, as with novelties, when they saw the benefits of this new vehicle, doubts were put aside. In fact, a lot of folk with money in their pockets wanted to have an easy life, investing in comfortable transportation, looking around the next corner with anticipation.By the 1890s, the first invented motorised bicycles turned up in England. They were big beasts with three wheels. Besides being heavy, these vehicles also cost a lot of money. Therefore, these transporters did not meet with a wide approval. It wasn't until inventors gambled on two wheels that the novelties caught people's eye. The weapons factory was now growing by the river of Huskvarna in the town with the same name, meaning "House Mill". In 1898, they found the time was ripe for manufacturing motorised vehicles with two wheels.
