      Hope its not Aerox coz automatic transmission is shown as seen in scooters but R is highlighted so it can be R3. 13 hours to go.

        Don't lose hope people.

        New R3 with ABS and better tires coming for sure. But don't expect it to be priced at par with 300cc singles. It will be in most probability, priced at or more 3.5L ex-showroom Delhi.

        Ride a motorcycle if you want to live free, but above all ride it safe and make others' lives safe.

          If they don't launch the new R3 in this Auto Expo, then I can officially call my bike Vintage! [emoji4]

                  Now the r3 seems a fantastic option, with the metz and the abs, I think sales should increase.

                    Its still a CKD unit
                    If they opted to locally assemble the R3 the price would had been much lower.
                    There is stiff competition from some 300 cc singles which provide much more value at a much lower price

                      Mate CKD means Completely Knocked Down unit,that means it is locally assembled motorcycle in india from the beginning since 2015.

                        Still a better option than the ninja 300 and benelli 302R, I know the 400 is higher on power that would be a good lakh and half more, obviously doesn't compare with the 390s with the tech n power output they provide, still a very enjoyable bike in my eyes.

                          I know what CKD means
                          I meant to say if they completely manufactured the bike in India they could have priced it more aggressively.

                          Benelli 302 is nowhere in the competition.
                          Kawasaki 400 will be a CBU and will be priced much higher
                          The closest I can compare the r3 is with the Apache rr310 which is a better VFM overall. Though the engines of both the bikes cannot be compared directly as the R3 is leaps and bounds ahead with the super refined and more powerful parallel twin.
                          If we could get it at 3.48 lacs on road then it would had been a much better deal

                            If you think about it, the price will be similar to 2015 pricing, which is good with the abs, Leds and metz.

                              Ya that's true but in 2015 there was just the ninja and dukes in the competition but now there are quite a few bikes in the 300 cc category priced much lower and a few 300s coming by the end of 2018 so yamaha should have priced a bit more aggressively
                              Another thing which I did not like is the r3 still gets halogen bulbs in 2018 where as some scooters and 150 cc bikes have been launched with led headlamps in the auto expo.

                                Great news that new R3 is finally launched!
                                Bit disappointed Red shade is not introduced, pricing could have been competitive too.
