Default My RD 350 HT 1984 Monsters

Well the word monster rightly describes my blue RD. This is one of the best RDs I've come across with power to die for. This Blue RD can give alot of 600cc sports a very tough fight till 80kmph. Everyone welcome to test it. Its actually insane power & awesome sound of this RD that'll make me keep her forever. Has to be seen & ridden to be believed.

The Modified RD is again quite a beast. One would obviously wonder that it looks heavy & is only for poser points. However, few have already found that out the hard way that she is quite a unique RD. I didnt want to copy any other bike or look hence i've not removed the torque induction & Yam sticker or logos. Got lots & lots of Mods done to her. From her swing arm to front sets, to alloy rims, 200 size tyre, twin disc, UNI filter, RDD CDI., twin custom chambers. All in all, she's a killa machine. The mid & top end is like a turbo boost. Initial aint anything to write about. I'll put up some latest snaps soon, as these ones are quite old, so the looks have been fine tuned better at present.

Tell me about it. As a revv happy RX100 owner, my first RD350 HT ride almost threw me off the seat. The acceleration & exhaust notes are to die for.

Both the bikes look fantastic, I usually like the stock look of an RD 350, but the mod job on the second bike looks great, though I think the head light could be done better.

Wow! Nice collection there and definitely they seem to be in in excellent condition. One of my uncle used to have and i used to love the exhaust note of it. Great pics buddy and 10/10 for keeping it so well maintained.

thanks alot guys. appreciate it. the pic of the mod RD were taken even before the trial run. Will post some current pics. It looks way better now. Though it hurts at times, that i've modified a one of a kind legendary RD, but when I ride it, all those regrets go away. The Blue one is just too insane. Other than adding UNI filters, nothing else is going to be changed or added.

Great bikes dude! The first time I ever rode an RD, I remember being properly properly scared! The awesome acceleration just completely took me by surprise, and after some time I was just hanging on for dear life! And then the love affair began . Even now everytime an RD passes by with that beautiful exhaust note, I cant help but get a warm feeling inside.

LOL. Anytime dude. Get any of your stock 600cc friends & u'll know how fast the Blue RD really is I think these night rides in traffic & possibility of rain has totally turned me off. So taking out the 14R isnt happening. Rather, see if u want to drop by my place & take these monster RDs for a back road rip? What say?

Ya man, yesterday just that irritating shower made you return but after that it was dry and around 10 SBK's, an S-Class and a Palio went to Badeh Miya. It was fun.

Your posts will take a while before they show up because you are still a newbie. Once you cross the 50 posts mark, they will show up immediately. Check this out - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/announ...-benefits.html

That friend of mine with the R6 is the only guy, all the others have liter bikes. I'm pretty sure the R6 will get smoked because, as it is, it doesn't make much power below 8000 rpm. Whenever its dry in the next few days, we shall blitz the back road with the RD.
