Naked 350 cc bike from Yamaha
Yamaha had announced the plans to reintroduce the old Yamaha RD 350 which was one of the most powerful bikes in 1970’s by the end of 2013.The bike produced 45 bhp at the crankshaft and around 35 hp at rear wheel.Those days the Yamaha RD 350 was 2 stroke although there were four-stroke models the two-stroke models of the RD 350 were well received.But for the new bike with the new European Union Emission 3 standards manufacturing a two stroke with emission standards is a whole lot of money to be invested as two-stroke technologies are not used these days and the technologies haven’t developed as they are not used.So Yamaha will go with a four stroke engine for the bike.The bike is a true naked bike with emphasis on city commuting and joyful highway riding.Yamaha plans to create a new segment for the bike and also the bike is a direct competitor to Honda CB 300R in Brazil and also a competitor to KAwasaki Ninja 250R although the Ninja and Rd 350 are in different class it could give Ninja run for the money with its looks and styling.
