Plus taxes-fees.

Yamaha has set the standard in the entry sports class with the exciting “R3”. Sporting a twin cylinder 320 cc engine and an ultra lightweight chassis, the R3 offers a solid combination of class-leading power and light, agile handling. Mix in an easy to ride personality and you are ready for a super fun riding experience!

Powering the R3 is a 320 cc, DOHC, parallel twin featuring a 4-valve cylinder head, 32 mm throttle body fuel injection and 6-speed transmission. Dig a bit deeper and you will find many of the high tech features found in our R6 power plant inside this engine too. Highway speeds are easily obtainable making the R3 a very versatile machine.

The R3 has been designed to provide a fun, enjoyable riding experience. To that end, the R3 utilizes a lightweight diamond type steel frame which is narrow and compact with a low 780mm (30.7″) seat height. Despite the cool super sport styling, the R3 offers a comfortable, upright riding position which reduces rider fatigue and increases the fun factor.

ENGINE

  • Lightweight & compact, 320cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valves (4-valves/cyl), fuel injected, inline-twin cylinder engine. The engine has been designed to provide solid performance right across the rev range, with very linear throttle response, low vibration & excellent fuel economy.
  • Downdraft style, compact combustion chamber
    • 4-valves per cylinder
    • straight intake path into the combustion chamber for excellent power output
    • 4-valves per cylinder enhances the low to midrange torque
  • The YZF-R3 uses regular 87 octane gas
  • Intake valves are 26 mm in diameter & exhaust valves are 22.5 mm.
    • Isonite surface treatment on the valve stems for improved durability & wear resistance
    • valves feature carbon cutters on the valve stems to help reduce carbon build-up during slower speed operation
  • Valve adjustment interval is every 42,000 kms.
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner.
    • reduces mechanical engine noise & maintenance
  • Lightweight, all aluminum DiASil cylinder (die cast all aluminum cylinder with silicone content).
    • offers outstanding cooling performance / heat dissipation for consistent power delivery
    • reduces weight since there are no heavy liners & cylinder is made completely of aluminum
  • Offset cylinder design.
    • offsets the cylinder 7 mm relative to the crankshaft (to the exhaust side)
    • reduces frictional losses between the pistons & cylinder wall during the power stroke
    • improved power output & improved fuel economy
  • 180 degree crankshaft with uneven firing order.
    • helps reduce "pumping losses" for maximum power output
    • provides an interesting exhaust note
  • Gear driven "primary coupled-force" balancer shaft.
    • reduces engine vibration for excellent rider comfort
  • Lightweight forged aluminum pistons
    • provide fast engine response
    • reduced weight
    • reduced mechanical vibration for excellent durability
  • Carburized connecting rods (carburizing is a form heat treating).
    • excellent strength & durability
  • "Closed loop" 32 mm throttle body fuel injection system.
    • system uses an idle speed controller (ISC) to maintain a steady idle regardless of engine temperature
    • 12 hole injectors for optimum fuel atomization
    • system is "tuned" to provide excellent "ride ability" & "linear" throttle control.
    • "closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions
    • fuel injection benefits include choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • Air box utilizes a viscous paper type air filter.
  • Compact, 6-speed transmission.
    • ratios specially designed to suit the character (torque & power) of the engine
    • 5th & 6th gears are overdrive gears to reduce engine rpms at highway speeds
  • Compact, wet-type, multi-plate clutch.
    • ensures consistent, positive shifting
    • light, easy clutch lever pull.
  • Low mounted, 2 into 1 exhaust system.
    • utilizes a short design muffler fitted with a 3-way catalyzer to reduce exhaust emissions
    • low mounted design centralizes mass for agile handling & lightweight feeling
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI).
    • produces a strong spark for fast starts
    • provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • Easy access spin-on type oil filter & engine oil drain plug.
    • fast & easy oil changes
    • oil change interval is 5,000 kms after the initial 1,000 km break-in oil change
  • Air Induction System (AIS... not ram air).
    • reduces harmful exhaust emissions
    • injects fresh air into exhaust ports to fully burn any unburnt fuel, further reducing exhaust emissions
