Yamaha R3 Temporarily Discontinued in India

Yamaha has temporarily discontinued the R3 in India as Indian government has put a ban on the sale of BS3 vehicles in India from April 1. Yamaha has also removed the R3 from their official website in India. R3 was being imported to India as a knocked-down kit from Indonesia and it was not BS4 ready. As per the latest details available, Yamaha is working on BS4 variant of R3 in Indonesia and the updated model will be launched in India in coming months. The new edition is expected to carry new shades and graphic enhancements while the engine would stay the same 321 cc, 2-cylinder unit. Though the chances are too thin, Yamaha might also introduce ABS as an option in India.
