About YZF R3 [2018]

The Yamaha YZF-R3 is Yamaha’s response to the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and KTM RC390. Now, however, the Ninja 400 has made its debut, and the Honda CBR250RR and CBR300R are all giving it stiff competition globally. There aren’t any mechanical changes to the 2018 R3 other than the updation to BS4 emission norms, but new colour schemes (blue and black) and the addition of ABS have made it better value. However, it doesn’t offer upside-down front forks or an all-digital instrument cluster like the R15 V3 offers. On the other hand, it still has the sweet 41bhp, 321cc parallel-twin engine and the handling that can bring any man to his knee.

The YZF-R3 competes with the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Benelli 302R, and KTM RC390 in the Indian market. The Honda CBR250R will also be a competitor when launched.

At its launch price of Rs 3.48 lakh, it undercuts the Kawasaki Ninja 300 by Rs 12,000 and offers ABS as well, as well as a higher peak power figure. It is now the twin-cylinder sportbike to beat in the Indian market.
