|1968 Kawasaki Avenger A7
350cc rotary disc valve twin, 40.5 BHP at
the time of production most powerful engine
per cc. The rotary disc valves were exotic at
the time, the preserve of the race track, they
make the engine very tractable with a lot of
low down torque. Race developed injectolube
oil injection to main bearings as well as cylinders.
Dry weight 329lb, Standing quarter claimed 13.8
sec Top Speed 105 -115mph. Back in 68 there
was nothing in its class that could touch it.
It was a match for the Brit 500s and most 650's
and a few 750's. Kawasaki
A7 Avenger 1968 review.
Limited sales in the UK as they were relatively
expensive and not supported by a dealer network.
As a result they are not well known and few
people have ever seen one of the early models.
