BMW lookalike

This bike looks a lot like a BMW, but it isn't.
What is it then?

Hi Aris,

Well you found yet another great trivia.

It is a MZ made in East Germany. Model BK 350. I think the year is somewhere between 1956 and 1961.

Here are some links to it:

From what I gather it was known as an IFA before 1956.

You got it!
It really looks like a BMW, only if you see a picture with a rider you realize it's smaller in size.
