The RZ350 debuted at the 1979 Paris Motor Show as the RD350LC and became available in Japan in 1981. This bike incorporated features which were developed from Yamaha's racing bikes, including a 347cc liquid-cooled 2-cylinder 45hp engine, front double disc brakes, and monocross rear suspension. Due to its high performance, which allowed it to take on larger 750cc displacement bikes, the bike was given the Japanese nickname "750-killer."
