Yamaha RD350 in Movies
The Yamaha RD350 is a twin, two-stroke sport motorcycle produced between 1975 and 1988. It could reach a top speed of 191.0 km/h (118.7 mph)
The engine was a liquid cooled twin, two-stroke. A 64.0 x 54.0 mm (2.5 x 2.1 inches) stroke result in a displacement of just 347.00 ccm (21.17 cubic inches). The engine features a 6.0:1 compression ratio. Fuel was supplied via a membrane & power valve.
The bike has a 6-speed transmission. The final drive was via chain.
It came with a 90/90-18 front tire and a 110/80-18 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via dual disc in the front and a single disc in the rear. The RD350 is fitted with a 20.00 litres (5.28 gallons) fuel tank.

Yamaha TX750 ? https://www.flickr.com/photos/12153962@N02/1268823791/ Hello JCB. The tank and instruments on the bike really look like those on a '73 TX750. On the other hand, the motor doesn't look at all like it's a TX750. The engine cases are very different and I can't see a spark plug on the side of the head. To me, that motor looks much more like the one on an RD350! It's like they put an RD motor in the frame of the larger bike. I know, it sounds absurd but those '73 TX's had serious reliability problems. I don't think they would have lasted until 1979 in police service. Could this bike have been "built" for this movie. Having not seen the film, I wonder if it was shown moving under it's own power... For me, it's a mystery.

If it is a real Police bike I cannot imagine HK police messing about with complex engine swaps , they would just buy new. I agree! But, if it's just a movie prop? Again I cannot see anyone taking on such a complex engine swap , why not just buy a runner and convert it , but hey ho I maybe wrong
Definitely not a TX (I had one), reliability problems were sorted on the "B" model with the sump extension plate, that stopped the counterbalancer whipping the oil into a froth. That bike is an early RD250/350 with a paint job reminiscent of a TX, the TX650 & 500's also had similar paint/graphics around '73-74. Link to "www.classicyams.com"
On the left a Yamaha RD350. Maybe a bigger Yamaha V-twin beside it?
Et la plus grosse, à côté de la 350 qui est tout à gauche, est une... Yamaha XS 650! Youppie...
It has air-cooled engine, so it's a pre-1980 model.
It is a two stroke, and from the tank shape it looks to be an RD350.

RD 250 ou 350?
RD 350 rather. Se the examples in this movie: /movie_73168-Zhong-guo-chao-ren.html:
Looks very much like an early 80's Yamaha RD350.
A condition qu'il ait existé des Yamaha RD 350 avec des moteurs quatre temps...
Rita, Sue and Bob Too!

1981 Yamaha RD350
Writing on tank in 2nd thumb looks like "Lee Wxxxx 250 (or 350?)". Twin disc so it's a 350, RD 350 LC. Make?? Sorry, Yamaha, the urban hooligan's weapon of choice. Ep1.03 - same one Bitza, RD350N forks & front wheel. Ep1.04 Ep1.05 OEK 7W ✓ Taxed Tax due: 01 May 2019 ✓ MOT Expires: 18 May 2019 Vehicle make: YAMAHA Date of first registration: 30 March 1981 Year of manufacture: 1981 Cylinder capacity (cc): 349 cc Fuel type: PETROL Export marker: No Vehicle status: Tax not due Vehicle colour: WHITE Sounds like it's been restored to factory spec Really good-uns are rapidly heading north of 7K. (still no pound symbol). Ep1.06 - solves the signwriting "LEE YAM TUNING" with an 0625 number, now 01625 = Macclesfield. You can almost hear the piston slap and rattly small ends over the howl from the Allspeed pipes, Elsie shouldn't smoke that badly. Not a very good mobile advert.
