Yamaha YZF-R3 (Old Model) Review

21 Dec, 2021 03:58 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

2018 Yamaha R3 none other than KTM RC390, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Benelli 302R in entry-level middleweight bike segment. Yamaha had once discontinued the model as it was BS3 compliant but the version launched in 2018 is BS4 compliant and also carries AHO as per government instructions. Yamaha uses a powerful 321cc, twin cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 41.4 BHP at 10,750 rpm and 29.6 Nm at 9,000 rpm. It gets clear benefits of its lightweight body. The 6-speed gearbox helps Yamaha R3 reach speeds in excess of 180 kmph while 0-100 kmph comes in under 6 seconds. The motorcycle comes with a class-leading design but loses in headlight department with halogen bulbs in use.

Benelli 302R offers LED twin lights and Yamaha may also use the same in the next version of R3. As R1, R6 and R15 are using the same wind laden rear design, it is most probably true that Yamaha would design R3 in coming years to offer the same design language as well as fully digital instrument console. A slipper clutch is also missing from R3 presently. It carries 14 litres of fuel and comes with dual channel ABS as standard. This makes it the most worthy contender in twin cylinder segment while KTM RC390 is still tough to beat for its value for money pricing. Seat height on Yamaha R3 is also opposite of all other R series bikes as they have higher than usual seats while this one offers 780mm. It can be bought in Magma Black and Racing Blue shade in India. Yamaha R3 measures 2090 mm in length, 720mm in width and 1135 mm in height. The wheelbase measures 1380 mm.

A Silent Assassin.

Kamal Singh Rawat | 4 years ago

Have been riding it for about 900 km till now, it's really very comfortable & not very demanding bike, has enough grunt to keep up with bigger bikes. I call it silent assassin since the stock exhaust is not loud but give it some gas & exhaust roars with a throaty growl, absolutely love the way how it changes from purring kitten to a roaring tiger with the twist of the wrist. Through is on a bit expensive side compared to other bikes in the same class. Fuel economy has been around 23kmpl.

Best Features: Engine refinement.

Pros: Silk smooth motor, very nimble, very good build quality, comfortable riding position & good heat management.

Cons: Halogen headlight.
