YZF-R1 inspired dual LED headlights
The front fairing is equipped with YZF-R1 style headlights that underline the YZF-R3's strong genetic links with the larger R-series models. Utilising bright and long-lasting LED technology, the dual headlights produce excellent visibility and illumination with minimal power draw – and give the bike a radical race-bred look.
37mm KYB inverted front forks
The YZF-R3 features 37mm inverted forks with optimised spring and damping settings. This design gives a large surface area for the sliding tube that ensures high levels of fork rigidity for sporty front-end feel and feedback without losing real-world comfort – and the special top clamp reinforces the radical YZR-M1 inspired style.
Lightweight A2-license supersport bike
Whether you're an A2 license rider or someone who is looking for the ultimate lightweight supersport, the YZF-R3 has the technology, performance and style that you're looking for. Developed using the same no-compromise philosophy that goes in to every R-series model, this bike's race-bred DNA is built to thrill.
Slim and lightweight sports chassis
The 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 YZF-R3's short wheelbase gives outstanding agility – while the near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution and accessible seat height deliver a balanced ride.
Lightweight wheels and supersport tires
The 17-inch wheels are fitted with a 110/70-17 radial front tyre and a wide 140/70-17 radial rear tyre featuring five pairs of thin cast spokes that complement the bike's sleek R-series image. These cast aluminum wheels with light hollow axles are both strong and stylish, while also minimising unsprung weight for refined handling performance.
High revving 321cc engine
With a compression ratio of 11.2:1, double overhead cams (DOHC) and 4-valve cylinder heads, the YZF-R3 motor is designed for quick-revving performance and high-rpm efficiency. With a maximum power output of 30.9kW/42PS at 10,750 rpm, this potent engine delivers thrilling acceleration with an exciting ride and a broad spread of power.
Radical YZR-M1 MotoGP® inspired look
Featuring radical bodywork and effective ergonomics inspired by the MotoGP® YZR-M1, this is the sleekest and most aerodynamic YZF-R3 ever built. The central M1-style air duct gives this compact supersport a pure race-bred look and with a high overall specification and idealised 50/50 weight distribution, the YZF-R3 is ready to thrill you on the street and track.
Digital multi-function instruments
The YZF-R3 features multi-function LCD instruments that inform the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock and an oil change trip meter – all presented in a clean, modern layout.
Aggressive YZF-R1 inspired face
With its glaring face, this bike is pure R-series, and features an aggressive front fairing and a race-type screen inspired by the iconic YZF-R1. Dual LED headlights and a central air duct work with the cross-layered fairing panels to maximize cooling airflow for the engine, making this the most outstanding supersport in the 300cc A2 license class.
