What a bike, the only leaner 320cc on the market and what a bike it is....

The new YZF-R3 engine has been designed using cutting-edge technology that has already helped to establish the R1 and R6 as two of the most respected supersport models available today. The result is that this new inline 321cc DOHC 4-valve engine has a sporty free-revving character with strong performance across the range.

The R3 is equipped with a newly designed steel diamond-type tubular frame that has been developed using the latest structural analysis technology. Its main tubes are 35mm diameter steel pipe, and the compact 321cc engine acts as a stressed member and features three rigid mounts and one rubber mount.

The R3 is equipped with front forks using sturdy 41mm diameter tubes, the largest in the class, and is fitted with an aluminium handlebar crown and under bracket. Offering 130mm of front wheel movement, these forks are designed to deliver smooth action combined with a good feeling of rigidity that helps to ensure confident and predictable handling.

The YZF-R3’s fairing features twin headlights with a reverse slant design that gives this new supersport bike a distinctive image that, while clearly part of the R-series family, has its own unique look. Between the lights is a centrally located air duct reminiscent of the YZR-M1 and YZF-R6, further strengthening the family ties.

The 10-spoke lightweight wheels are complemented with a large diameter 298mm floating front disc with a two-pot caliper, and a 220mm rear disc with single pot caliper that give smooth, strong and progressive braking performance. ABS is fitted as standard equipment.

More R-series styling influence is evident in the R3’s short 2-into-1 muffler that has a distinctive R6 style about it. This compact muffler is positioned close to the machine’s centre of gravity to give improved mass centralisation, thereby contributing towards the bike’s agile handling character. Equipped with a triple expansion chamber and oxygen sensor, this stylish muffler emits a sporty exhaust note to complement the R3’s performance-focused character.

 

The multi-function instrument panel includes an analogue tachometer and digital speedometer – and to underline its strong R-series heritage the R3’s instruments feature a shift timing indicator lamp similar to the design used on the YZF-R1. There’s also a gear position indicator, fuel gauge, water temperature gauge as well as fuel economy information, clock, tripmeters and more.
