I believe it is a Triumph Bandit 350, which is the sister bike to a BSA Fury 350. Probably 1970, or 71 or so.

BSA and Triumph had a version when they were under the Norton Villiers Triumph banner early 70's.
Triumph Bandit or BSA Fury, same bike different badge.
Appeared to have a modern take on engines for the English, ie electric start, twin overhead cams etc but they never got to Oz and suspect NVT management pulled them.
Was bitterly dissapointed that I couldnt get one here in late 71 so went out and purchased a CB750K1

I recall there being an article in Motorcycle Classics recently about the BSA Fury.
