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 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 R3 is ready to thrill you on the street and track.
Aggressive R1 inspired face and LED lights
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 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.
High revving 321cc engine
With a compression ratio of 11.2:1, double overhead cams (DOHC) and 4-valve cylinder heads, the 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.
Lightweight A2-license supersport bike
Whether you're an A2 license rider or someone who is looking for the ultimate lightweight supersport, the 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 R3's short wheelbase gives outstanding agility – while the near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution and accessible seat height deliver a balanced ride.
R1 inspired dual LED headlights
The front fairing is equipped with R1 style headlights that underline the 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 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.
Low fuel tank and handlebar position
Thanks to the low fuel tank design and low handlebars, the R3's ergonomics give a pure supersport riding experience. As well as being extremely comfortable, the riding position makes it easy to grip the machine with your knees for improved confidence, especially when you’re tucking in tight to the bodywork for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
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.
Powerful braking system with ABS
The 298mm floating-mount front disc brake ensures excellent stopping power with plenty of feel at the lever, while a 220mm floating disc handles the braking performance at the rear. And with its ABS antilock braking system, the R3 rider can ride confidently – even when traction is reduced in wet or slippery conditions.
Balanced 50/50 weight distribution
Thanks to the engine placement and overall machine dimensions, the R3 ABS features a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution – widely regarded as being the ideal set up for supersport bikes – giving precise handling performance, easy agility and plenty of feedback from the road.
Digital multi-function instruments
The 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.
