The Elefant 350 was produced from 1985 to 1989, this model is for many a bit heavy and has poor performance, the starter was both kick and electric starter , The line with the Cross type fender is not very well seen.

However, this does not mean that it is a motorcycle with high technical characteristics, where the various components such as the Ducati dimo-twin engine, the Öhlins mono shock absorber, the Marzocchi forks and the Brembo braking system are derived from the 650 and 750 models.
