Yamaha has discontinued the YZF-R3 in India since it does not meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms. The brand launched the 2019 R3 overseas but it is not BS6-compliant and has not made its way to India.The bike is expected to be introduced later this year or early next year once it internationally receives a Euro5/BS6 update.
The international motorcycle gets new design updates that included an LED headlight, new fairing and taller windscreen. It also gets a full-digital instrument console. The new motorcycle's riding position is even more sportier thanks to the clip-on handlebars being 22mm lower. It ispowered by the same 321cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor that puts out 42PS and 29.6Nm of torque as seen on the older bike. Yamaha claims that new R3 is 8kmph faster.Also, the 2019 Yamaha R3 features a KYB 37mm USD fork, replacing the telescopic unit on its predecessor.

When i sell my last bike my friend & my cute son tell me to buy a big bike. Accedentis the main cause of my slling this bike. I wan to know firstly that i don’t buy another bike. But situation have forced me to buy a bike. So few days later I go some brand’s showroom & Finally I bought amaha YZF-R3 motorcycle. I choose this bike for ABS braking system. I think it gives me very safety & speedy also. I bought this bike with Rs 3,45,000. This day is very memorable for me. It is so biggi for me. Firstly I drive my Bike & i can realize the difference between my previous Motorcycle.When i reached my home i feel much better to ride this bike. It has so speed though i can’t take the top speed. I am worried about it’s mileage because only 20 kmpl mileage of it’s. It is not unusal also cz it has 321 cc very powerfull engine.As a describer on my bike. It’s so nice, big & styling. Braking system is just owsome. Relax seat system i very enjoy to seat here & ride experience. When i bought this bike it gives me 25 kmpl mileage now after 4,000 km it gives me 20 kmpl mileage. I am sure about that it gives me this mileage a long time because i concern about this mileage with a specialist. This mileage is not a matter for me. I make a long tour about 600 km per one day when I & my friend make a journey by Motorcycle. I notice one think that i have not suffer from my neck pain for riding a long drive.

My son also enjoy this bike to seat behind me .The young man tell me pappa more speed, more speed. But all time i ride my bike with a fresh sence & secure. I change gear oil regularly & service for a month regular. I have no more big cost in behind this bike . It is so free for me now at all. At the last I tell one think I really enjoy this bike & I also love my this Yamaha YZF-R3 Bike.
Got this as my first bike and put 11,000 miles on it in 6 months. City miles. Got it with 0 miles and it is now just under 30,000. I had some recall work done pertaining to oil pan or something? I’ve laid it down twice and I’ve dropped it 3 or 4 times. Only maintenance cost was a new battery after around 4.5yrs, brake pads, and a new chain. AND a new low beam headlight kit from my accident at 50mph (internal structure, not outside), new shift lever which could have probably been bent back with heat if needed)and then changing my oil a little too often.She’s been good to me and when I started driving semi’s, she was ready to ride after sitting for weeks at a time without a battery tender. Flaws: if I let off electric start too soon on a bad startup it occasionally putters a little trying attempt 2(perhaps mild flooding?) This only happens if I turn off very briefly after a rigorous ride where she’s pretty hot still. This has been an issue that I noticed before probably 3-5,000 miles. When I was around 150lbs I let off of it at 125mph, yet google states top speed is 118... People think it’s a 600 and I think it’s a 150 😅 but it was just what I was looking for and more! Great buy!
Absolutely perfect & One of the least offensive stock exhaust which has a deep throaty roar as revs climbs. Power delivery is very smooth & linear, so no sudden burst of power at lower rpm, however past 7000rpm punch increases all the up to red line. Though on a bit expensive side still best bang for your buck. Though brakes could have been better, front brakes feel bit spongy but a steel braided brake line should take care of it.
Yzf r3 is the besk bike but it is kinda problem also.1) Starting issue always even after showing it to the yamaha service center 3 times.2)Recalling of the bikes after paying a rich amount of money on this bike.3)No option for old bikes to go for abs while ktm 390 has the same.
Its rare to find a bike that can be a good all rounder. Personally though I have a few other bikes of smaller capacity, this bike came as a big surprise in terms of overall usability. A great overall package.
