According to reliable sources, the Yamaha YZF R3 will be launched in November this year. The motorcycle was discontinued from the Indian market previously. However, it will be re-launched with the introduction of the BS IV compliant engine.

The Yamaha R3 is a fully faired sports inclined motorcycle with Yamaha’s racing genes. It comes with dual headlamps with the rear view mirrors fitted on the visor. It offers a very sporty rider position and stance with clip-on handlebars. It is suspended over telescopic forks on the front and mono shock absorber at the rear. There are disc brakes on both the wheels. However, the updated version of the Yamaha YZF R3 is expected to get ABS (anti-lock braking system) as well.

This new BS IV compliant Yamaha R3 is expected to get the same powerplant as before. The 321-cc inline, twin cylinder motor can thrust out a maximum power of 42 bhp at 10,750 revolutions per minute along with a peak torque of 29.6 Nm at 9,000 revolutions per minute. Once launched, it will be locking horns with the likes of the KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the DSK Benelli Tornado 302R.

The Yamaha YZF R3 was launched in 2015 and had a price tag of Rs. 3.26 lakhs. The updated version may get a slight revision in the price. It went out of sale in India back in April this year during the transition period from BS III to BS IV.
