In 1911 the company name was changed to Triumph Werke Nürnberg AG (T.W.N.), in 1913 the parent company in England was separated. Motorcycle production resumed in 1919 with the Knirps model, whose two-stroke engine was copied from the English Triumph Junior.

A total of 6 pieces of this model were made. There are pictures from the RR 1000 sales brochures. The motorcycle was found disassembled in a barn in Potsdam, Germany in 1989 and has found a new home in Thüringen, Germany.
