Is the launch of Yamaha R3 ABS & Red colour related with the launch of MT-03 in India?

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.

Why didn’t Yamaha launch the Red & White Yamaha R3 in India?
2022-12-29 05:58:17 AM
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.
