Yamaha has stated that all motorcycles with a certain production number range may be affected. Although no such problems have been reported in India, as of now. The Japanese manufacturer has already begun a factory modification campaign, to replace the parts on the affected motorcycle.
The Japanese brand has also announced that the recall is mainly addressed towards the issue of leaking of coolant from the radiator and the widening of the torsion spring. Around 1,874 motorcycles manufactured between July 2015 and May 2018 have been recalled from both domestic and export markets.
Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted individually and their motorcycles will be serviced free of costs at the company's authorised dealerships. Yamaha is in talks with their dealers to ensure a convenient and efficient service experience for their customers.
The Yamaha YZF-R3 is powered by a 321cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine. It produces 41bhp and 29.6Nm of peak torque and is mated to a six-speed transmission.
The R3 uses telescopic front forks at the front while the rear uses a swingarm suspension setup. Braking is handled by a single 298mm and 220mm disc setup at the front and rear, respectively. The brakes are further supported by dual-channel ABS as standard.
