In 1905, driving a motorcycle with Alcyon Buchet 330 cc single-cylinder engine, which he developed, set a record speed of 100 km / h. The test was carried out to test the new performance standards resulting from the recent limitation to 1/3 litre, imposed by sports authorities for motorcycle racing. A few weeks later, he showed up with one Anzani Alcyon 330 in the first edition of a motorcycle race called “Championnat du Monde de moto”, which was held on July 13th, 1905 on the velodrome Zurenborg, in the south-eastern outskirts of Antwerp . Favoured by the fall in the race Belgian ace Jan Olieslagers and crossing the line ahead of teammate André Pernette, Anzani conquered the victory, becoming the first world champion in the history of motorcycling and quickly gaining international notoriety and fame. Until World War II, production is diversified, with a range of V engines and star up to 20 cylinders.
