TIZ (ТИЗ) or Taganrogskiy Instrumentalniy Zavod No. 65 named after Stalin (Таганрогслий инструментальный завод No. 65 им. т. Сталина)) was a motorcycle manufacturer. In 1936 they commenced building the TIZ-AM-600 (Army Motorcycle), a Soviet copy of the BSA 1931 Sloper 600. With the German Invasion of the Soviet Union, the plant was transferred east to the town of Tyumen in the Ural region. The new plant was known as TMZ (ТМЗ) or Tyumenskiy Mototsikletniy Zavod (Тюменский мотоциклетный завод).
