Known for its classic design and powerful performance, the RD350 still holds a special place in the hearts of many enthusiasts. It is still possible to find RD350 bikes in good condition in the hands of several customers. Now, Yamaha is all set to launch this bike again in a new avatar.
Talking about the engine of the Yamaha RD350, the company has used the old engine in this model. The RD350 used to have a 347cc air-cooled engine, capable of generating 39 bhp power, and it was mated to a 6-speed gearbox. In the new avatar, it is expected to come with a four-stroke engine.
When it comes to features, the Yamaha RD350 could sport features such as LED headlights with DRLs, a digital instrument console, dual-channel ABS, Bluetooth connectivity, traction control system, and assist and slipper clutch.
