After just launching the R15 V3.0, Yamaha has upped it ante by launching the 2018 YZF-R3 Sportsbike at the Auto Expo 2018. Priced at Rs 3.48 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) buyers can choose from two available colour options – Racing Blue and Magma Black.
Big news is that Yamaha has now made the R3’s 321cc parallel-twin, four-valve, engine BS-IV compliant. Power and torque figures stand at 41.9hp at 10,750rpm, and 29.6Nm of at 9,000rpm respectively and the engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
Also, the YZF-R3 gets new dual-channel ABS and Metzeler M5 tyres. Suspension duties continue to be handled by the same 41mm Kayaba forks up front and preload-adjustable shock at the rear. It gets a 110/70 R17 tyre at the front and a 140/70 R17 tyre at the rear, each mounted on 17-inch alloys.
Otherwise, the R3 more or less remains the same with its instrument cluster displaying information like current and average fuel consumption, the coolant temperature and two trip meters.
Prices to start at around the Rs 1.9 crore mark; long-wheelbase ‘Executive’ Panamera to arrive by end of 2017; hybrid model expected at later stage.Read More
