TMZ (ТМЗ) or Tyumenskiy Mototsikletniy Zavod (Тюменский мотоциклетный завод), was a motorcycle manufacturer in the Soviet Union. It was created following the German Invasion of the Soviet Union, when TIZ (ТИЗ) or Taganrogskiy Instrumentalniy Zavod No. 65 named after Stalin (Таганрогслий инструментальный завод No. 65 им. т. Сталина) was transferred east to the town of Tyumen in the Ural region.
