Default Re: Yamaha YZF-R3 : Detailed Ownership Review

The Yamaha R3 has been removed from the list of motorcycles on the Yamaha India website.

Bhpians, any idea if a new version is coming soon to our shores? Possibly equipped with ABS?

This is what I am aware of. Need not be 100% true.

1. The R3 which was running all this while was BS4 compliant but was done with the paper work of BS3. Hence some work needs to be done.
2. There could be some minor enhancement to make it ready beyond BS4 with the new lot that will start coming in soon.
3. Imports will be stopped till the new version is out or paper work is complete.

Now the existing ones, since quoted as BS3 cannot be sold anymore. The bike will be on sale after the new lot is back or appropriate paper work is done. Till then, existing owners, feel exclusive.

If Yamaha was planning to remove R3 so soon, they would not have thought of extending the recall to all R3 owners just a month or so back. Big cost to them. So one thing is for sure, no need to panic.

Hi Abhishek, our last YRC - Markonahalli ride was fun ( if you can recall me joining your group).
Are you a hundred percent sure that the existing R3s on road are BS4 compliant? There is an interesting thread on differences between BS3 and BS4 here by a Bhpian "Difference between BS3 and BS4 engines" look for the evaporative emission requirement for 2 wheelers. I will have a big smile if our R3s already have these carbon canisters fitted in the tank.

here are a few clicks from our last ride

Hey Abhimanyu !! I sure do remember and I can relate now with your team-bhp.com post

I am not even 1% sure on that as this came from one of our YRC discussions and quoted as a so called confirmed news. That said, the chances of R3 returning with proper BS4 stamping is quite high. As of now, everything is a rumor as even the Yamaha - India guys do not have a confirmed news. I wish we had a better picture, but alas.

Thanks for joining the last ride and the clicks ! Hope you enjoyed it. It was good to see the FZ-1 and the MT-09 join us. The MT-09 was a beauty.

Any information on either the R3 or the MT-03 coming to India?

One of the "Birdie" associated quite closely with the Japanese manufacturer told me that the YZF-R3 will be displayed at the auto expo which I believe is sometime during December or January.

What I am really interested with is this:

The updated R3 will offer ABS as standard, and possibly all LED headlights, with an addition of a Matte Black shade.

I am not sure Sheel if I understood your question. You can just browse the internet to know the actual specs of the international R3.

I am just going to post 2 shades that I am hoping is offered on the India bound R3:

I heard from one of the chennai dealers that it will be towards March or April 2018.

I doubt Yamaha would delay that further with rivals already coming up aith ABS versions.

I have been hearing varied dates from dealers here in Mumbai. One said November, one said Jan and third one said March. I fail to understand what is taking Yamaha so long. Especially when Kawasaki was so quick to get the Ninja 300 BS4 so swiftly.
