Model Range
The original 2 h.p. model was supplemented with a 6 h.p. (770cc) JAP twin cylinder machine in June 1913. A 3 h.p. (499cc) side-valve model followed in September 1913.

Cycle Parts
The all-black colour scheme was introduced, with gold leaf lining.

Engine and Gearbox
Unlike the earlier machine, both the 6 h.p. model and 3 h.p. model had a three-speed gearbox.
