Meet Autologue’s VR3M: Yamaha R3 Transformed Into a Yamaha R1M
Yamaha R1M is certainly a dream bike for many in India. Carrying a price tag of INR 33,54,330 (ex-showroom Delhi), this machine comes with high performance electronically controlled parts all over its body. If you are one of the die-hard Yamaha race bike fan, nothing will feel better today than going through these high resolution images for Autologue Design’s Yamaha VR3M.
Based on Yamaha R3, this typical custom motorcycle gets inspiration from R1M and flaunts its love for Valentino Rossi through its exclusive body finish. The best part comes when one you can have your R3 customized to look exactly the same as VR3M for INR 25,000!
The front fascia now lacks those halogen headlight and replacement comes through two projectors with one custom built panel to cover the remaining space. The pillion seat panel is further inspired from R1 and R6’s body design. Side panels, fuel tank, rear seat and even the front fairing is wrapped in multiple shades. Apart from that, the rear mudguard goes missing for a sporty effect. Yamaha R3 is the only R series bike that currently carries the old generation design while R1, R6 and even Indonesian spec R15 carries the new design language.
Yamaha uses a powerful 321 cc, twin cylinder engine producing 41.4 BHP at 10,750 rpm and 29.6 Nm at 9000 rpm. Technically, this makes it rival Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Benelli 302R in India. As it was only BS3 compliant, Yamaha pulled off the R3 from its official website. It will soon return with BS4 compliant engine and may bring optional ABS for added safety.
It was the lightest option among all, carrying INR 3,26,530 price tag at its time of availability. Soon after it returns, Yamaha will try placing the R3 under both the currently available bikes. Expect a price tag of around INR 3.50 lakh for the updated version.
