      nice write up n REVIEWED well. on the bike: being a direct competitor to cbr250r n ninja (both 250 n 300), the ex show room price quoted will keep yammy fans disappointed. duke 390 owners as suffering from quality issues (no offense to anyone) can be pooled by Yamaha r3 n can be used to boost or cover up there late coming but at this price bracket without abs they will look for something else. in our context this one will be hell bent performer but spending 3.5l is not going to work well.
      the most useful aspect Yamaha has given attention to is the mid-range power delivery which is very useful in ours road conditions. a rev happy two cylinder engine with enough of torque keep the bikers in us happy for both city n highway driving. if this falls in 2.25-2.75l bracket, this would be going to sell like cupcakes
      searching for a road to perfection

          Hello frens, I am planning to buy this machine. Today, I visited the showroom and asked them whether this machine has ABS or not. They replied that it has ABS. Could you guys throw some light on this. I have read the previous posts and it states that this machine donot have ABS. Currently, I have Pulsar RS 200 ABS and want to upgrade. Plz guide.

            R3 doesn't have abs yet.Rumors however are that it will get abs in mid 2016 models. This will continue to be a rumor unless it reaches our shores.
            Do go through r3 ownership reviews for more informative and pros and cons of the machine.

                  Can we expect a similar welcome change in India ?

                    2017 r3 models in US markets have ABS. Hopefully this would come to India as well with a slightly better pricing.
