What Is It?

The Yamaha YZF-R3 is an A2 licence friendly sports bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 321 cc parallel twin engine, producing 41.4 bhp at 10,750 rpm and peak torque at 9,000 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel frame and swingarm
  • 298 mm disc up front with two piston caliper
  • 220 mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • ABS system
  • 41 mm KYB fork with 130 mm travel
  • KYB rear shock with 125 mm travel and pre-load adjustment
  • 2->1 exhaust system
  • LED rear light
  • 6 speed gearbox and gear indicator

Yamaha introduced the R3 to sit between the R125 and R6 while also taking advantage of the new A2 market. The 10-spoke 17" wheels take a 110/70 tyre at the front and 140/70 at the rear.

The engine is a stressed member of the frame and draws on some of the R6 tech, such as lightweight forged Aluminium pistons and an 80% Aluminium / 20% Silicon cylinder build.

Accessories include the Akrapovic Carbon silencer.
