2022 Yamaha R3 India To Launch By Diwali
When the Yamaha YZF-R3 was introduced in India in 2015, Yamaha had already made a name for itself as the nation’s top manufacturer of sports motorcycles. However, the Yamaha R3 was unable to achieve impressive sales figures because of its exorbitant price of Rs 3.25 lakh. The bike’s most recent pricing was Rs. 3.51 lakh, which is more expensive than its competitors, the KTM RC 390 and TVS Apache RR310.
Yamaha R3’s BS6 version introduction was supposed to happen much sooner, but the pandemic caused plans to be postponed. According to sources, R3 may be relaunched in India around Diwali 2022. It is essential that R3’s pricing be changed if it is to become a bestseller.
Additionally, it must contend with brand-new rivals like the recently released BMW G310RR, which costs about Rs 20k more than the TVS Apache RR310 at Rs 2.85 lakh. Features of the 2022 Yamaha R3 This year, Yamaha debuted the R3 in a number of foreign markets. Since the bike was discontinued in India, a number of improvements have been made, including the addition of new colour options.
Inspired by the MotoGP YZR-M1, the 2022 R3 sports a sleek, aerodynamic shape and sophisticated styling. Key characteristics include a central air duct for quick engine cooling, a tiny windscreen, sporty rearview mirrors positioned on the front cowl, turn indicators mounted on the side fairings, a sculpted fuel tank, a split seat design, and an upswept exhaust.
The 2022 Yamaha R3 is a track-focused motorcycle with low-set handlebars and rear-set footpegs that encourages aggressive riding. A comprehensive digital instrument panel on the bike shows a variety of data, including the fuel capacity, gear position, water temperature, real-time and average fuel economy, trip metres, and clock.
Yamaha has attempted to lighten the R3 over time to improve its power-to-weight ratio. Performance on both busy city streets and racetracks is enhanced by a light profile. The chassis has been modified, and lighter but stronger pistons are used. 2022 R3 weighs 170 kg when wet, which is lighter than RC 390 and RR310. The low seat height of 780 mm, which enhances balance and handling, is an additional benefit.
The 2022 Yamaha R3 has preload-adjustable monocross rear suspension and USD front forks. The front and rear 298 mm and 220 mm discs are responsible for braking. The bike has 17-inch wheels on both ends, with 110/70 front and 140/70 rear tyres. Dual-channel ABS is available as standard.
A 321cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC motor with a maximum output of 40.4 horsepower at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 29.4 Nm at 9,000 rpm powers the motorcycle. A 6-speed slipper clutch gearbox is connected to it. The engine’s sophisticated cylinder structure and high-rev architecture work together to guarantee quiet, vibration-free rides even at high speeds.
