YZF-R3

yamaha-yzf-r3

Yamaha’s legendary R-series bikes set the standard in the supersport world thanks to class-leading style, advanced technology and racetrack performance.

The YZF-R3 fits perfectly into our supersport range between the entry level YZF-R15 and the race-winning YZF-R6. So whether you’re moving up from a 125 or you’re new to two wheels, you can be sure that the 320cc parallel twin features the same attention to detail that goes into every R-series motorcycle. Take one look at the aggressive dual headlight fairing and aerodynamic bodywork and the pure R-series DNA stares right back at you.

YZF-R3: a superbike you can ride every day.

10-Spoke Cast Wheels wtih ABS

10-Spoke Cast Wheels wtih ABS


Featuring thin cast spokes that complement the light and sleek image, the 17-inch wheels are fitted with a 110/70-17 front tyre and a wide 140/70-17 rear tyre. For powerful and progressive braking performance the YZF-R3 benefits from a large diameter 298mm floating front disc and a 220mm rear disc. For added control, Anti-Lock Braking is fitted as standard equipment raising confidence levels even further. 

Long R1-Type Swing Arm

Long R1-Type Swing Arm


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. 

Distinctive R-Series Styling

Distinctive R-Series Styling


Check out the fabulous 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 up-swept tail - are all strongly influenced by the look of our World Championship winning R6.

Lively New 321cc Inline Twin Cylinder Engine

Lively New 321cc Inline Twin Cylinder Engine


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. 

Information Rich Instrument Panel

Information Rich Instrument Panel


A trick 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, trip-meters and more. All of course wrapped into an impressive liquid-crystal-type display.

R-Series Technology

R-Series Technology


The R3 benefits from sophisticated R-series technology such as a light and compact direct-drive camshaft for efficient performance; lightweight forged pistons to reduce reciprocating weight by 10%; lightweight aluminium DiaSil cylinders with 20% silicon content for a highly friction-resistant microstructure; offset cylinders and a 180-degree crank with optimum inertial mass, while a primary balancer is adopted to reduce vibration and mechanical noise.
