A two-stroke 200cc motorcycle, the Yamaha CS3 was a parallel twin that was also known as the RD200 in other markets. It featured a five-speed transmisison and an oil injection system, which helped the bike perform much better than you might expect a 200cc bike to run.
It was the most powerful 200cc Motorcycle of its era.
ABOUT THIS BIKE
An exciting option to consider in 1972, carrying an advanced twin cylinder, 195cc motor that churned out 22 BHP at 7500 rpm and 21.3 Nm at 7000 rpm. These values are better than the present generation 200cc bikes. For those who think this reason was not good enough to justify the performance, a kerb weight of 116 kg gave it the same advantage that you can get by pushing KTM 200 Duke engine in a Bajaj Discover chassis. Almost 30 kg of less weight than present generation bikes make this Yamaha a great option to own.
Aircooled, 2 stroke, Parallel Twin.

It came with basic features like drum brakes, twin rear shocks and flat seating for two on offer. Headlight was round while fuel tank measured 11.5 liters. All this setup helped Yamaha achieve speeds around 130-140 kmph.
