Questions and Answers

Most Popular Answers for Yamaha R3
Which one is better between Aprilia RS 660 and the Yamaha R3?
05 January 2023 02:07
When it comes to deciding between the Yamaha R3 and the Aprilia RS 660, it really comes down to personal preference. The Aprilia RS 660 has a higher top speed and better engine performance, but the Yamaha R3 has better fuel efficiency and a lower price point. Both bikes offer a great riding experience and are sure to put a smile on the face of any rider. Ultimately, it comes down to what you prioritize most in a bike and which design appeals to you the most.
Is the launch of Yamaha R3 ABS & Red colour related with the launch of MT-03 in India?
29 December 2022 05:59
Yamaha MT-03's launch in India has not yet been scheduled by the company and it is possible that R3 may get ABS when the MT-03 gets launched in the country. The parts on both the motorcycles are common and Yamaha may increase the amount of localization, in order to keep the prices same and add ABS to the R3 in India. The Red shade can also be expected if the R3 gets the same Red shade for its naked body structure. The sales number of R3 is another factor on which the Red shade's launch indirectly depends. Both the bikes use a 321cc, 2-cylinder motor producing 41.4 BHP and 29.6 NM of torque.
When the Yamaha R3 will be launched in Red colour and with ABS version in India ?
29 December 2022 05:59
The ABS version would be launched in the current year and bringing Red into the country cannot be confirmed yet. The bike looks excellent in the Red shade whereas Yamaha currently sells the Blue and Black shade in the country. Yamaha is popular for its GP Blue shade and most of the R3's sold are of the same shade. Yamaha may increase the localization and start selling the ABS, Red colored R3 in the country. The twin cylinder 321 cc engine on the same produces 41.4 BHP and 29.6 NM of torque.
Does Yamaha R3 has got massive sound like YZF-R1?
29 December 2022 05:59
Yamaha R3 comes with a light sound when compared to the roar of the R1. The sound difference comes with the number of cylinders being used in a bike. The Yamaha R1 is a 4-cylinder machine with specially composed exhaust note for different range of rpm's whereas the R3 comes with a twin cylinder arrangement and quiet natural exhaust sound. R3 comes with a 321cc engine producing 41.4 BHP @ 10,750 rpm and 29.6 NM @ 9,000 rpm. The gearbox is a constant mesh, 6-speed manual unit. R3 comes with a price tag of INR 3,25,000.
Why didn’t Yamaha launch the Red & White Yamaha R3 in India?
29 December 2022 05:58
Yamaha has launched the much awaited R3 in Racing Blue and Lightning Black shade only. The reason for the same would be the lower probability of sale of the Red shade in India. Yamaha sells most of its bikes in its signature Blue shade and limited edition models are mostly showcased in other shades. It also raises the probability of launch of the Red and White shade in a limited edition model, depending upon the sales of the current shades of the bike. Yamaha powers the R3 with a twin cylinder 321 cc engine and every unit of the same is imported via CKD route. In that, the company sends completely knocked down units of bikes, which are assembled locally. Yamaha R3 has been price at INR 3,25,000 for the current shades.
