It appears even triumph has tried to get in on the Bandit bandwagon ...........(also to be sold as the BSA Fury)

35hp from a 350 in 1970 - that's not too shabby.

Interesting looking bike with the twin cam mill.
It would have been well behind the 2 strokes in power at the time though wouldnt it?

The 1970 yammy had similar HP , with more torque & 2 strokes were generally lighter

But 4 strokes like the 350 Honda were also immensely popular at the time .....................the choice was fantastic  Very Happy

The government is finally looking at giving it the ok here, along with lane filtering, wish they'd hurry up with both!

I'm really enjoying the filtering. I did have one tosser jump the lights after I'd filtered to the front on time tho, so keep an eye out for those that don't keep up with the new laws coming in.
