The motor between 6k and 8.5k RPM.
Chassis is much more competent than Kawasaki's of the time are supposed to be.
Rare - less of these made than any other triple.
Front drum brake.
25mpg when keeping it in power band.
3 cyl 2 stroke with claimed output of 45bhp. The Kawasaki S2 350 produces no-where near this of course, but still has more power than any other production 350 until the LC Yamaha.
Does handle OK, doesn't get out of shape too badly in the power-band if the road is lumpy, unlike it's bigger brothers. Drum brake needs constant adjustment to keep it working averagely, fades like buggery at speed - just about acceptable around town.
Fuel consumption is terrible, add that to synthetic 2t oil and it's the most expensive ever 350 to fuel up. It's dirty, thirsty, noisey and non PC and I love it.
