    Default Yamaha R3 launched at 3.48 lakh in Auto Expo 2018

    India Yamaha Motor (IYM) Pvt. Ltd. today introduced the popular sports model, YZF-R3 at the Auto Expo 2018 in the presence of Bollywood star and Yamaha’s brand ambassador John Abraham. The new YZF-R3 is enabled with dual channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) technology and high grip Metzeler radial tyres. The motorcycle will be priced at Rs. 348,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) and will be available at select authorized Yamaha dealerships.

    The dual channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) technology will further ensure reliable braking on slippery roads by automatically adjusting the brake fluid pressure.

    Specs are the same as the previous version of the R3, except the inclusion of ABS and Metzeler tyres

    Finally..After a long long time!

    It has increased weight 3 kgs though due to ABS.

    But now the mini legend is back with a bang. Safer and more stickier tyres which should've been there from day one. Super pricing too with minimal hike.

    Now after RR310 if your not looking above the ₹5.5 lakh machines like Ninja 650. This is really VFM now for what it offers!

    Like someone said in an earlier thread the RR310 and the R3 share the same soul. Only difference being one is Single and other is a Twin.

    Two No-brainer VFM machines for sports touring.

    Cheers!

    Yea, i agree, Unless some one is really interested in Twin cylinder, RR 310 is a better option with better hardware which has the similar purpose..

    Any idea if the ABS module can be fixed to the older R3?? Or is there a more technical complexity
