There was another.   ;)

In Schweinfurt Germany there was a Sachs plant that built engines for 
mopeds and small motocycles, some of them marketed under the Hercules 
name.   Sachs and Herc mopeds were all over the place in Schweinfurt, 
likewise motorcycles with the same names.   I had a Sachs moped, ran 
it all over everywhere.

One of the first Wankel powered motorcycles was the Hercules, and it 
was air cooled.    Early 1970s, believe it came along before the Suzy.
