Features may include:ENGINE
Yamaha’s 321cc liquid-cooled; inline 2-cylinder engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range. With a 180-degree crank design and integrated counterbalancer; the layout minimizes vibrations for a smooth; refined engine character.
With a compression ratio of 11.2:1; double overhead cams (DOHC) and four-valve cylinder heads; the YZF-R3 motor is designed for quick- revving performance and high-rpm efficiency to deliver an exciting ride with a broad spread of power.
A smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox ensures the rider always has the right ratio; whether riding through tight canyon corners or racetrack straightaways.CHASSIS/SUSPENSION
The YZF-R3 features an inverted fork with optimized spring and damping settings; significantly improving fork rigidity; front-end feedback and control feel. The design also includes a YZR-M1-inspired top clamp for improved supersport style.
The single-shock design further centralizes mass and is tuned to strike a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance; for capability across a wide range of uses; from urban commuting to trackdays. It’s also adjustable for spring preload; to account for passengers or cargo.
The 298mm floating-mount front disc brake ensures excellent stopping power; supported by a 220mm rear disc. The YZF-R3 ABS model also features an antilock braking system to boost rider confidence and prevent wheel lock-ups in reduced-traction conditions.ADDITIONAL
The R3’s aggressive design continues the legendary styling born from the YZR-M1 MotoGP® machine and improves overall aerodynamics at high speeds; too. The glaring face of the R3 features compact LED headlights with a central air duct that maximizes cooling airflow for the engine.
Light Emitted Diode (LED) elements are used for both the taillight unit and headlights. Not only do LEDs offer long life with minimal power draw; they provide brilliant illumination; for confidence and visibility day or night.
Thanks to the low-profile fuel tank design and relatively compact handlebar position; the rider is able to naturally grip the machine for confidence; especially when tucking aggressively behind the windscreen on the racetrack.
