A awesomely fast 350 two-stroke twin when it was launched in 1969. It’s 315cc piston-port engine gave an easy 39hp at 7,500rpm, and weighed about 149kg. It was the fastest 350cc machine available in 1972, and was able to out-drag the Honda CB450, as well as the Triumph 500 twins with a standing quarter of less than 15 seconds! The T350 Rebel though was not all good news; its handling was borderline evil, as many North American customers found out! The power was simply too much for the chassis, but it still made for an exciting ride, and became something of a legend over time. Few have survived and those that did are highly coveted by collectors, especially in North America market.
