This lightweight supersport Yamaha R3 comes with a MotoGP inspired look that makes it, by far, the most desirable 300cc sports bike on either the street or the track. The class-leading machine’s sleek bodywork with a central air intake, mirrors the look of Yamaha’s YZR-M1 MotoGP machine, as ridden by Valentino Rossi. For the road bike, the aggressive dual LED headlights simply underline its heritage and pure R-series DNA. Build quality is second to none with a set of high-specification KYB 37mm inverted front forks giving the rider precise suspension feel and feedback. Meanwhile, a great deal of development has gone into ensuring that the ergonomics give the rider plenty of comfort together with precise control.
Overall the bike’s looks are radical, as we would expect from a bike which is inspired by the company’s YZR-M1 MotoGP machine. The aggressive front fairing and screen frequently result in the bike being mistaken for the R1! The new high revving 321cc engine delivers smooth yet thrilling power while still being a lightweight A2-license supersport bike. Its sporty handling and agility come back to its slim and light chassis. The instruments are housed in an LCD screen while the lightweight wheels are haled up to a stop with a full ABS system keeping everything safe.
