        Nothing major, just check for any minor scratches, coolant level, probably even all the indicators and headlights. Along with the bike, do check all the paper work. Make sure you collect all necessary documents like insurance, tax receipts, octroi receipt if applicable, invoice. Also, ask if u can upgrade to a zero dep insurance and get it upgraded. Difference should be 2-2.5k.
        Also get it refueled at the earliest and get the tire pressures set to 29-33(front - rear)

        And rest, Enjoy the day, click lots of pics( I forgot to click any pictures in all the excitement) and ride safe.. Congratulations in advance bro..!

              Guys got a small demo yesterday. The bike looks great and is surely an eye candy. Coming from a R15 the tang was humungous and position quite upright. It feels bigger than what i expected looking at pics.. Dash looks sporty.. exhaust note is okay nothing too exciting..just one problem. The rear break lever is a PITA.. I dont know what these guys were thinking when they designed the damn thing.. i just couldnt keep my whole foot on the lever and its metal non rubberized and looks like it was taken from some 100cc motorcycle.. what was wrong with the ones we have on R15??

                Yesterday I finally got a test drive on this machine.The bike may not draw common man's attention but it pulls the rider's heart strings in.a positive way.Its truly an yamaha.Seamless gear change,perfect handling and awesome engine that gifts you a nice response at any gear and at any rpm.The throttle response was brilliant.Also the bike is comfortable to ride and light-I took a complicated U turn also very easily.Exhaust is sweet,can be sweeter.. Need a yoshimura r77 slip on.

                  Just did a 200kms. ride on the highway, with varying speeds upto 7K RPM.
                  The bike is a different beast altogether compared to R15. High seating position, comfy stance and the brilliant twin cylinder howl while speeding up. Ample torque and passing power at any speed and gear. I'm sure the higher RPMs pack an even larger punch!
                  The bike is truly a tourer's delight! Sporty engine with touring dynamics.

                    Completed 700kms but hyd dealer has still not rcvd the equipments for R3 servicing from factory, so will try to complete 1000k asap & wait.
                    Tried going beyond 7k rpm & the actual exciting power is beyond 7k,unfortunately have to wait for 1st serv to njoy in this powerband.
                    Beyond 7k am sure it can beat any swift/innovas.
                    And finally removed the ugly sareeguard after the registration.
                    Hi Sarvajit can we R3 owners frm hyd meet for a ride?

                      That is such a good looking bike. And the ergos are just spot-on perfection.

                        Congratulations Bro! I'm at 400 kms.
                        Yes, I've taken the bike briefly to 9K RPM and the power surge is intoxicating!
                        Why don't you try Pearl Yamaha, Gachibowli. All you need is the new synthetic oil and an oil filter. They have both.
                        Sure, we can meet. Do you know any others? The black bike that came with mine got delivered a couple of days back. But I don't know to whom.

                          Aftet getting confused betweem R3 and N300, I have finally booked myself a YZF R3 😎. The new color scheme of ninja is awesome but i felt ninja a touch slower, had to release clutch quite a bit to get the bike moving. R3 on the other hand felt light and nimble. I am happy with the purchase, opted for blue and eagerly waiting for the delivery.

                            I was in the same boat a while ago. Finally ended up with R3 the moment I saw it in person.

                              I'm sure the decision will pay off in the long run.

                                Congrats to all the proud owners of R3.

                                Since you own a N300, did you felt any difference regarding below specs:

                                N300 - DOHC, 8 valves
                                YZF R3 - DOHC, 4 valves

                                Does it has any effect in reality?
