3 New Shades Introduced for Yamaha R3 in the US

Indian Yamaha R3 is imported from Thailand, where the current shades on offer are different than the US market, reducing the chances of getting the new shades in India before New Year. The motorcycle is powered by a 321cc, twin cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine producing 41.4 BHP at 10750 rpm and 29.6 Nm at 9000 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The top speed of Yamaha R3 is rated at 188 kmph, along with its 0-100 kmph sprint time of 6 seconds. The bike weighs 169 kg and retails for INR 3.26 lakh. It rivals Kawasaki Ninja 300 and KTM RC 390 in India. The new shades are really attractive and they could help Yamaha reach more customers with typical choices when it comes to exterior body finish. Yamaha R3 is also available in Red shade in Canada and it is one of the best shades we have ever seen on a Yamaha sport bike. Yamaha might introduce new shades for the R3 in India by March 2017 along with the introduction of ABS (Anti-lock Braking System).
