Our Yamaha 350 RDLC is the first model (4L0 model code) without YPVS. It’s a high-quality performer, fun to ride and very reliable. RDLC stands for: Race Developed Liquid Cooled.
When Yamaha presented this bike in October of 1970 to the Paris bike show everyone thought that 2 stroke was dead and that the 350LC was the rebirth of the 2 stroke. For the first time in the history of motorcycles, Yamaha proposed a real competitive replica bike and a solid road version of the 350TZ.
Yamaha also used this parallel on their publications and brochures because during this period there weren’t many performance bikes.
