High-Revving Supersport Engine
Yamaha’s championship-winning technology gives the YZF-R3 a broad spread of power with exciting high-rpm performance.
The new inverted fork works with a Monocross rear shock to provide exceptional handling, with balanced chassis rigidity, a near 50/50 weight balance, and damping and spring settings designed for a wide range of road conditions
With a fully-fueled weight of only 368 pounds and a seat height of only 30.7 inches, the YZF-R3 is ultra-light, nimble, and confidence inspiring - whether on tight city streets or wide-open racetracks.
A range of exclusive technologies ensures the YZF-R3 combines Yamaha’s legendary refinement and reliability with thrilling performance, all while sipping fuel at a efficient 23.8km/l.
Ultimate Lightweight Supersport
The all-new YZF-R3 features a range of features to boost performance, quality and style. Sleek new bodywork echoes Yamaha’s YZR-M1 MotoGP machine, with high-tech LED lighting and new instruments. A new inverted fork offers enhanced suspension feel and feedback. The lower fuel tank and revised handlebar position improve rider ergonomics. And new Dunlop radial tires boost grip and road feel.
All-New R-Series Styling
The R3 features all-new bodywork that continues the legendary styling born from the YZR-M1 MotoGP machine. Up front, the glaring face of the R3 features new LED headlights and a central air duct that works with the cross-layered fairing panels to maximize cooling airflow for the engine. Overall, the new body not only boosts refined styling from every angle, it is significantly more aerodynamic at high speeds, too.
Redefined Sportbike Ergonomics
Thanks to lower fuel tank design and lowered handlebars, the rider is able to more naturally grip the machine for improved confidence, especially when tucking aggressively behind the updated windscreen on the racetrack.
Thanks to the engine placement and overall machine dimensions, the YZF-R3 features a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution for enhanced performance and road feel.
New Digital Instrumentation
The updated multi-function meter informs the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock and an oil change trip meter—all presented in a clean, modern layout.
