The Yamaha YZF-R3 is great small capacity Supersport bike with Yamaha’s iconic aggressive design and outstanding performance, making it the perfect choice for first-time riders or experienced sportbike pilots who prefer a lightweight, nimble machine.
Powered by a reliable 321cc engine that produces 42 Ps and 29.6 Nm of torque, the R3 delivers excellent performance for navigating cross-town traffic, carving twisty roads, or participating in a track day. Featuring the latest combustion technology, lightweight forged aluminum pistons, and all-aluminum DiASil cylinders with an offset design, the smooth-running and quick-revving R3 engine produces easy-to-manage power.
A lightweight steel frame cradles the engine’s crankcase within the chassis, resulting in approximately 50/50 front-rear weight distribution for the perfect balance of rigidity and weight. An asymmetric swingarm efficiently delivers engine power to the rear wheel, while a preload-adjustable KYB rear shock mounted in a Monocross suspension design contributes to a mass centralization of weight. To help achieve the right balance of comfort and sport riding performance for both street and track, the R3 features a KYB 37mm inverted front fork to provide the rider with outstanding handling during cornering and braking. ABS is also available, adding to confidence-boosting stopping performance.
