Yamaha YZF R3 Design And Style

The Yamaha R3 is fully faired performance motorcycle in the popular 300cc class. The motorcycle looks edgy and aggressive thanks to the sharp front end with angular twin-pod headlights up front. The motorcycle also gets a large windscreen to reduce wind blast.

The front fairing is aggressively designed with cuts and creases for aerodynamics and blends well with the muscular fuel tank. The tail section of the R3 gets a sleek LED tail light and a short fender. The step-up seat design and the chunky rear tyre adds to the sporty appeal of the R3.

The Yamaha YZF R3 is powered by a 321cc liquid-cooled, fuel injected, parallel-twin, 4-valve engine with a maximum power output of 41.4bhp at 10,750rpm and a peak torque output of 29.6Nm at 9,000rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The Yamaha R3 offers a superior performance, and the handling has been improved with the long swingarm for extra stability. The power delivery is linear but offers a strong punch in the top end to thrust the motorcycle to a claimed top speed of 188km/h.
