Yamaha Unleashes The Yamaha YZF-R3 For Rs 3.25 Lakh
It looks like Kawasaki’s monopoly in India’s market will face good competition as Yamaha has released the R3 to meet the needs of biking enthusiasts, here. It can also be called the younger brother of the Yamaha R25, as both look somewhat similar in the terms of design and styling, and yet it is more powerful.
It has a 320cc inline two-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that can deliver 41bhp at 10,750rpm of power and 29.5Nm at 9,000rpm of torque. It can reach 0-100kmph in 6 seconds with a top speed of 187kmph. It comes with a 6-speed transmission and uses R-series technology that includes a direct-drive cam-shift, forged pistons, carburized con rods and low-friction cylinders, just to name a few.
On the exterior, the R3 adopts a more sporty look and has features like dual headlamps, a digital-analogue console, a silencer and 10-spoke alloy wheels.
The bike has been launched today and present at the event was John Abraham, who happens to be Yamaha’s brand ambassador, in India. The bike is available in two colour schemes- Blue and White, Read and Black- and is priced at Rs 3.25 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The company also said the motorcycle will be available in 100 recognized dealerships, from 11th August.
