Kawasak A7 Avenger
|A 350 that was the best in in class and would bikes of twice the capacity.|
Review of the A7 Avenger submitted on 2007-06-02.
Kawasaki produced the A series bikes in 1966 before Bridgestone. Rotay disc valve engines were at that time the preserve of the race track and continued to be until 2 stroke was baneed from racing. These bikes were well mannered around town thanks to wide power band and low down torque, but hit 5000rpm in 4th and you left
the world behind, it was lightning quick up to 80mph. Despite the race developed Injectolube oil injection, oil is fed directly to the main bearings, the engine seem to be more fragile than the 250 which ran with more basic Superlube system. Problem could be that both bikes run the same bottom end and possibly it is not up to the extra power. I lost my crank at 17000 necessitating a full rebuild. These bikes were the best 350 of their generation, they would pull a quarter in the low 14´s and easily top 100mph. Handling was also good, brakes were good for their time being twin leading shoe. Still running my 67/68 model with 33,000 miles on the clock. It is still fun to ride and has no trouble keeping up with bikes of more than double the capacity and a fraction of its age.
