1974 Yamaha DT360

The Yamaha DT360A was a single cylinder 360cc dual-purpose street and trail motorcycle sold under the Enduro-model family produced by Yamaha in 1974. In fact 1974 was the first and only year of the DT360A and also the final year of the production 360 (351 c.c. engine) series Enduro from Yamaha. Model year 1975 saw the introduction of the very successful DT400. The 360 Enduro series was originally introduced in the third model year of the wildly successful Enduro line in 1970 with the RT1. Yamaha also rolled out a motocross only version as well called the RT1M which came with knobby tires on the front and rear, high rise front fender, a high performance upswept expansion chamber tuned exhaust pipe, different front and rear sprockets geared for racing, a close ratio 5-speed transmission, number plate sans headlight, tailight, keyed ignition switch, tach and speedometer. 1971 saw the roll out of the RT1-B 360 followed in 1972 by the RT2 and in 1973 the RT3 was the last year 360 using the little modified frame and endine dseign that was originally introduced on the 1968 DT1 250. In 1974 the DT360A recieved a new frame design with higher ground clearance, longer fork and rear cushion (shock) travel, relocated foot pegs, a longer wheelbase and numerous other improvements most all of which were gleaned from lessons learned by Yamaha's seasoned race teams.

The Yamaha DT360 had adequate ground clearance, raised rear and front fenders, cross braced handle bars, a raised and tucked exhaust system, however the rear utility rack was offered as an option on all of the Enduro models including the DT360A.
