For enthusiasts of 2-stroke motorcycles, the Yamaha RD350 is a priceless gem, and the model from Munich, Germany, is now the most potent one available. The project’s creator, Moto Essence, has given it the moniker “Yamaha RD350 Falcon.” In 2017, it was constructed especially for Glemseck 101. Motorcycles with twin cylinder engines under 1200 cc are included in the race.
The motorcycles may be modified to any degree by the competitors, and this one, with its re-bored engine, is unlike any other. The 420 cc displacement of the 347 cc engine now yields no less than 90 HP of unadulterated performance. When compared to how powerful it actually is on the stock Indian version, this makes it nearly three times as potent.
The 38 mm Keihin carburetors, big radiator, and bespoke exhaust system all come standard on the RD350 Falcon. Parenti provided the frame for the same, and Wiesco supplied the pistons for holding the additional horsepower from the modified engine. In contrast to India’s stock version, the body work is minimal so that the weight is kept very low.
A 347cc, twin-cylinder engine with 30.5 BHP and 32.3 Nm of torque is installed in the standard RD350. The Japan-spec model produced 37.2 Nm at 7000 rpm and 39 BHP at 7500 rpm. It weighs 155 kg in its stock form, but this alteration would have allowed them to reduce that weight by about 30 kg.
