Egon Müller (born 26 November 1948 in Kiel, West Germany) is a former international motorcycle speedway rider and was winner of the Speedway World Championship in 1983, winning the title in his homeland with a maximum score of 15 points.
Egon Müller was the German Champion eight times (1973, 1975, 1977, 1979, 1981, 1983, 1984 and 1985). He rode briefly in the United Kingdom in 1973 for the Coatbridge Tigers (Scotland), and in 1975 for the Hull Vikings.
As of the 2013 Speedway Grand Prix series, Egon Müller is the only German rider to have won the Speedway World Championship. At a time when the Speedway World Championship was a single meeting that could throw up a surprise winner on the day, Müller was generally seen as a 'one hit wonder' in the same way 1973 World Champion Jerzy Szczakiel was. However, unlike Szcakiel, Müller was a perennial championship contender having made four previous World Final appearances (1976, 1977, 1980 and 1981) as well as being a triple Long track World Champion. Müller also rode in the 1984 and 1985 World Finals but could not replicate his 1983 win, finishing in 14th place with just 3 points from his five rides on each occasion.
Outside of his sport career, Muller was a pop singer under the stage name Amadeus Liszt, a moderator at trade fairs, shows and charity events, an actor and a television personality.
