Their growing numbers of restrained only by the fact that until not long time there was a ban on the operation of such motorcycle. Which became a massive passion for young people in cities «superbike» may become a sort of push to repeal the ban, and the beginning of the release of the Kiev motorcycle factory per howling national heavy «single», which received the designation 8.157-01 KMZ-Dnepr.

In general, many of them. But they are all associated with a fundamentally different approach to operating a motorcycle with a sidecar and singles. Although the gearbox kept reverse gear, but the lever switch on blocked special emphasis, because for «single» this transfer is not needed. The very same box, keeping all their gear ratios, differing only gear drive speedometer. Undergone significant changes in front of the motorcycle. She got new headlights bracket, upper and lower bridges steering column, front fender and fork tips of feathers. To reduce the stiffness of the suspension applied to her other, softer springs. The plug is now equipped with rubber casing. There were plastic side panels, several improved the appearance of the motorcycle. To reduce the center of gravity is reduced wheel diameter up to 18.
