The TD3 250cc and TD3 350cc models were the final developments of air-cooled twin racers built by Yamaha, being replaced by the water-cooled TZ250 and 350A models in 1973.

Following the retirement of the awesome V4 factory racers in 1968 and the restriction to 2 cylinders and 6 gears for 250 and 350 classes by the FIM, Yamaha concentrated on production racers and while they still had a factory team it was possible for privateers to be competitive with the factory bikes and in some cases beat them. Phil Read's 1971 World Championship on a TD2B in a Godden frame being a good example.

The success of the marquee brought about the demise of the 350 Grand prix class as it was impossible to differentiate between the 250 and 350 grids which were totally made up of Yamaha bikes.
