  • Re: Yamaha YZF R3 Owners Reviews and Experiences

    Hello - R3 Blue Silver was not delivered to me on 17 March 2017 after the booking bike on 19 Feb 2017. The dealer has refunded me the booking amount. I have checked with almost all the dealers in Delhi NCR, they do not have the Blue Silver color, apparently the demand for this color is huge and not BS 4 compliant model. The left over stock is only of black which is difficult to maintain and moreover it might be a 2016 or 2017 Jan/Feb manufactured model, again not BS4. As per Road Transport Ministry, effective from 1 April 2017, BS3 models will not be registered and so the dealers are trying to clear the black stock. Adarsh Yamaha, the biggest dealer in South Delhi has adviced me to wait till July for BS4 model. There is a judgment from the court which is pending to extend the deadline of the registration. If the deadline is extended, then the company will clear away the stock which might delay the BS4 model further. If the date is not extended, then we can expect an early launch of the 2017 model. Looking at people getting the blue color indicates that there must be some dealers who have the Blue color but not all. Lost all hopes in Delhi NCR. Have no option but to wait.

      Additionally, they are ready to reduce helmet price as I don't want it. They are nice people to talk to, unless somebody from the forum had different experience.
      Secondly, answering another comment on forum, it doesn't make sense to wait 2 years for abs version of r3. Instead do an FD, save a little and go for higher CC bike.
      ABS is mandatory from april 2018, so you have to wait for 10-12 months, not 2 years.

      Higher cc bikes are only weekend bikes as they makes no sense for daily use due to their higher maintenance, lower fuel efficiency and more important is secure parking concerns where ever you go

          I differ here, i use my bike daily and fuel efficiency is around 25 kmpl which is acceptable. Maintenance cost is ₹2500 in every 5k kms. Till now haven't faced any concerns on secured parking.

            I clarified 2 posts ago that abs is not mandatory for existing models. It will be from April 2019. Any new model launched after 2018 should have abs. This is clarified with both Honda and Yamaha dealer. For Bangalore traffic conditions you cannot use r3 regularly. So even r3 is weekend bike, if not, then any superbike can also be used daily.

              ABS is mandatory only for new models from April 2018. Existing models have window till April 2019 to be upgraded.

                  The dealer gave me Teflon coating and a helmet for free while getting the delivery and that helmet is worth a full face .

                    Congrats. Can you tell me the break up charges of the machine ? Also please provide the 10th digit of VIN, its under rear seat.

                      I am too eager to know whether yamaha made R3 BS4 compliant or not.

                        Thanks for clarifying.

                        The point is that if new models come with ABS then yamaha has to provide ABS on existing R3 else it will surely dent on sales numbers simply because market will get flooded with ABS bikes and in that scenario it will be difficult for yamaha to justify how they are superior to competitors without ABS.

                          Glad to hear you have secured parking,
                          unfortunately it's not case when you are on trips or at new places. I have faced scratching, number plate tearing etc.

                            I am in a sales job, I have to travel many places but R3 doesn't grab a lot of attention which is good for me atleast. Many people think it's modified R15 or Fazer [emoji38]

                              Well.. Colour of the bike matters a lot. My Black Ninja doesn't catch as much as attention as a Lime Green Ninja does.. so I am safe most of the times

                                I was about to mention same but skipped so as to avoid hurting R3 owners emotions . Yes R3 is mistaken as NEW R15. It's good so as to avoid unwanted attention.
