The bike’s mechanics are the same as before.

The completely faired muscular layout of the 2021 Yamaha YZF-R3 includes:

  • A stepped-up seat.
  • A twin-pod headlamp cluster.
  • A clip-on handlebar.
  • An upswept exhaust.
  • A raised windshield.

The front fairing has been updated to match the flagship Yamaha YZF-R1, providing enough space for the rider to hide behind during sprints down straight roads.

For devoted riders, the latest Yamaha R3 model comes with impressive design changes and upgraded equipment. The bike has an R15 V3-inspired faux air intake in the centre and slim twin headlights with more powerful LED illumination.

New R3 is equipped with a digital instrument console, all-LED lighting, and designer alloy wheels.

It also includes optional extras, including a sportier windscreen, a graphics protector, and a tank pad.
