Leading bike maker, Yamaha is planning to launch 2019 Yamaha R3 motorcycle in the country before April, reports suggest. While the company is yet to make an official announcement regarding the same, it is expected that India could get the same Euro 4 compliant engine which is offered in the European and other Asian markets. According to reports, the BS-IV engine will be updated to comply with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms after the Euro5/Euro6 model is launched globally.

The new Yamaha R3 was pre-viewed first last year in October in Indonesia. The motorcycle gets a host of styling tweaks with most of the changes made to the front. That said, it features new split LED headlights, digital instrument cluster, a faux RAM air-intake, and restyled side fairing. The fuel tank has also been reworked, whereas the tail section remains unchanged.

Aside from cosmetic tweaks, the bike also receives some mechanical changes such as the new 37 mm KYB upside-down forks up front, albeit the link-type rear mono-shock has been retained.

Power is derived from the 321cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine which makes top power of 42 bhp against top torque of 29.6 Nm. Transmission duties are carried over by the six-speed gearbox. Yamaha will reportedly localise some parts to curb pricing. If launched through the CKD route, the 2019 Yamaha R3 could be priced in the vicinity of Rs 3.50 to Rs 3.70 lakh. With parts localisation, the pricing could be curbed further.
