The new lightweight YZF-R3 is an ideal entry point for supersport riders and a seamless solution for YZF-R15 or other small capacity owners who are looking to move up. Its powerful new 321cc twin cylinder engine and lightweight chassis benefit from the most advanced technology you'll find in the class. Which means that every time you get on your new R3, you just know it's going to be like nothing else. The YZF-R3 is a stylish and practical performance model that’s ready to open up the world of R-series to a new generation of riders who are looking for cutting edge design combined with exciting performance and excellent value.
Powering the new R3 is latest R-series technology. The result is an inline twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 321cc, DOHC 4-valve engine with strong performance across the range. Featuring a bore and stroke of 68.0 x 44.1mm and a compression ratio of 11.2:1, this compact engine develops 30.9kW or 42PS at 10,750 rpm, with maximum torque of 29.6Nm/3.0 kg-m at 9,000rpm for a thrilling ride.
The R3’s compact and lightweight chassis is manufactured from high tensile steel tubing that gives an optimum balance of strength and rigidity. For sporty and agile handling characteristics the R3's wheelbase is almost the same as the R6 at 1,380mm - while the 50/50, front/rear weight distribution promotes optimum mass centralisation and a low 780mm seat height offers confidence inspiring riding. To underline its strong R-series DNA, the new R3 benefits from an extra-long R1-inspired swing arm. Featuring the same swing arm/wheelbase ratio as its legendary big brother, this race-proven layout ensures strong straight line handling performance and more efficient transmission of power to the road. Sturdy 41mm front forks and a lightweight Monocross rear-end offer smooth action and a confident inspiring level of rigidity.
Check out the fabulous new R3 from any angle and it's pretty obvious where its genes come from! The angular aerodynamic bodywork has distinctive R-series inspired lines, and the reverse slant dual headlights - as well as the short muffler and sharp upswept tail - are all strongly influenced by the look of our World Championship winning R6.
The new YZF-R3 engine has been designed using cutting-edge technology that has already helped to establish the R1 and R6 as two of the most respected supersport models available today. The result is that this new inline 321cc DOHC 4-valve engine has a sporty free-revving character with strong performance across the range.
The YZF-R3’s fairing features twin headlights with a reverse slant design that gives this new supersport bike a distinctive image that, while clearly part of the R-series family, has its own unique look. Between the lights is a centrally located air duct reminiscent of the YZR-M1 and YZF-R6, further strengthening the family ties.
The 10-spoke lightweight wheels are complemented with a large diameter 298mm floating front disc with a two-pot caliper, and a 220mm rear disc with single pot caliper that give smooth, strong and progressive braking performance. ABS is fitted as standard equipment.
More R-series styling influence is evident in the R3’s short 2-into-1 muffler that has a distinctive R6 style about it. This compact muffler is positioned close to the machine’s centre of gravity to give improved mass centralisation, thereby contributing towards the bike’s agile handling character. Equipped with a triple expansion chamber and oxygen sensor, this stylish muffler emits a sporty exhaust note to complement the R3’s performance-focused character.
The multi-function instrument panel includes an analogue tachometer and digital speedometer – and to underline its strong R-series heritage the R3’s instruments feature a shift timing indicator lamp similar to the design used on the YZF-R1. There’s also a gear position indicator, fuel gauge, water temperature gauge as well as fuel economy information, clock, tripmeters and more.
