It’s been a long time since we have been waiting for Yamaha to launch R3 in India and it looks like the wait is almost over now, the news from our various sources confirms that Yamaha India will be launching the new R3 on August 11th. Yamaha R3 is a twin cylinder motorcycle powered from a 321cc engine and that means R3 will be costlier than KTM’s RC390 which is a direct competitor to the R3. Apart from KTM’s orange machine, R3 will also lock horns against Kawasaki’s Ninja 300.

Talking about the motorcycle, it is powered from an inline twin liquid cooled 321cc engine produces a stellar 42bhp of power and a equally apt 29.6Nm of torque, while the transmission duty is handled by a 6-speed unit. Among the other features Yamaha has bestowed to the R3, the use of R-series technology which includes a direct-drive camshaft, forged pistons, carburized con rods, low-friction cylinders is worthy of a mention, these technologies make the R3 a potent rival to the Ninja 300. The YZF-R3 will arrive with the safety advantage provided by ABS which will be standard on the Yamaha YZF-R3. The motorcycle will be available in two colour shades – Race Blue and Midnight Black. Being a twin cylinder motorcycle and being a Yamaha, we assume it will be placed somewhere in between the price of KTM RC390 and Kawasaki Ninja 300, or a price tag of INR 2.80 lakhs will  make sense.
