Collection items

(1966 / Production Model)


This was a scrambler model for overseas markets that took the high-performance YDS-3 sport model as its base and drew attention in America's then-emerging off-road bike segment. It featured an Autolube-equipped 2-stroke, in-line 2-cylinder engine with excellent power, reliability and durability. It was known as the "Big Bear Scrambler," and in order to deal with difficult road conditions and make the machine less susceptible to damage from obstacles, it came with equipment like a mid-mounted side muffler and engine guards.
