In Germany (and I assume elsewhere, too), the Bee is a symbol for fastness combined with … diligence ? I think this word fits it best.

Which means that this motorcycle was "as fast as a bee" or "as diligent as a bee" or so the name would suggest.

But you don't need to know that.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
