Yamaha YZF R3 Latest Updates

The 2019 Yamaha YZF-R3 has been showcased at Yamaha’s Press Premiere a day ahead of the 2018 EICMA show in Milan, Italy. The new-gen motorcycle comes with revised design and suspension setup in a bid to make it more relevant in the current market. Yamaha has incorporated a trickled-down version of YZF-R1’s design language, which makes the motorcycle appear a lot more compact than the previous-gen bike. However, the dimensions have remained unchanged while the kerb weight is down from 173kg to 169kg.

For 2019, the R3 employs 37mm Kayaba inverted front forks and a rear monoshock. Brakes are the same 298mm front and 220mm rear combo, with dual-channel ABS. The new motorcycle is likely to be launched in India by mid-2019. If Yamaha decides to launch the motorcycle, expect the Japanese brand to launch it with telescopic front forks instead of the sophisticated (and pricey) USDs.

Yamaha YZF R3 Highlights


The 312cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor is now BSIV compliant and produces 42PS of peak power, with 29.6Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a slick shifting 6-speed gearbox. Underpinnings include telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. The front gets a 298mm disc whereas the reaer comes bolted with a 220mm disc brake. Its tips the scale at 173kg (kerb) and the fuel tank capacity available is 14-litres.

Design and Features

Back for 2018, the Yamaha YZF-R3 has a sharp and edgy design that should appeal to the masses just as the older version did. The twin cat-like headlamps, full fairing, clip-on handlebars and the sporty tail section is inspired by larger sports bikes from the Yamaha stable. The semi-digital instrument cluster has been retained as well. This time around the R3 comes with the much needed ABS feature and Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres, which should offer tonnes of grip in corners over the MRF Zappers. For 2018 the Yamaha R3 gets two colours - blue and matte black.


DSK Benelli 302R: The Benelli 302R isn’t an outright performer thanks to its weight. However, if performance isn’t a priority and if you are looking for a lot of pose value, the 302R is a good option. It feels smooth, offers confidence-inspiring handling and a very dramatic exhaust note that is similar to much bigger bikes.

Kawasaki Ninja 300: The Kawasaki Ninja 300 didn't garner a lot of fame in India, owing to its price tag. But with the new pricing, the future looks a lot more promising for the Ninja 300. It does come across as a very potent track tool with not so sharp ergonomics as the KTM. Making it a more approachable machine for riders to use it for their daily stints as well. Plus Ninja 300 is Rs 50,000 cheaper than the R3 with equally promising reliability. Plus it gets ABS as standard now.

Kawasaki Ninja 400: The Ninja 400 is dearer by a bit more than Rs 1 lakh over the Yamaha R3. This too gets ABS like the Yamaha R3, with an added bonus of a slipper clutch. There is also a charging dock placed near the fully-digital instrument console, which will aid your long distance tours. It produces 2PS more power but gets 10Nm more torque over the Yamaha R3. So if the performance along with a comfortable riding posture is on top of your list, the Ninja 400 is a good choice. But if that extra cash is a concern, then the Yamaha R3 is no compromise.


The 2018 Yamaha YZF-R3 comes with a 300cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor that is refined, powerful and tractable. Complementing the motor is a very capable chassis that feels just right regardless of whether you are in city traffic, touring or belting down the racetrack. The introduction of ABS dor 2018 adds Rs 23,000 to the cost of the previous version, but for that you also get stickier Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres.
