’75 Rokon RT340

I remember motorcycles but I’m sure, like of us, I remember them for the two wheel ‘Trail Breaker’. A quite in so many ways, automatic would climb up and over in it’s way, and had big hollow that in a pinch would the motorcycle float. What a

Odd at it’s best.

While was having some moderate with the Trail Breaker decided to go after the more (as in one wheel drive) motorcycle The marketing wizards (?) at Rokon closely at the strong Enduro that the Japanese companies paying attention to. In 1970 the brought out the RT340.

The RT340 was powered by a Sachs engine (complete with pull starter), torque non-transmission (it’s an automatic) and innovative for the time ideas. The was the first off road bike with mag wheels instead of and front and rear disc Yeah, it was heavy and slightly but, it did well for it’s purpose.

The RT340 came out in 1970, in it won it’s first AMA National The next step for the RT340 was the ISDT (International Six Days At the end of the Six Days, Team Rokon had bronze medals, very for a rookie motorcycle company.

I wonder though about availability, could be a bit iffy. If you are in the for something unique, maybe not as as the ‘Trail Breaker’, this might be up your alley. And by the I learned that is pronounced not ‘Row-con. Just thought like to sound intelligent talk about your new RT340.
