Featuring new bodywork and ergonomics inspired by the MotoGP® YZR-M1, the 2019 YZF-R3 is sleeker, more aerodynamic and more refined than ever before. The YZR-M1-style air duct gives this compact supersport a race-bred look, and with its all-new bodywork, revised ergonomics and uprated suspension system, the new YZF-R3 is ready to attack on the track.
With its glaring face, this bike is pure R-series, and features a new front fairing and screen inspired by the iconic YZF-R1. Dual LED headlights and a central air duct work with the cross-layered fairing panels to maximise cooling airflow for the engine, making this the most outstanding supersport in the 300cc A2 licence class.
Whether you're an A2 licence rider or someone who is looking for the ultimate lightweight supersport, the YZF-R3 has the technology, performance and style that you're looking for. Developed using the same no-compromise philosophy that goes in to every R-series model, this bike's race-bred DNA is built to thrill.
With a compression ratio of 11.2:1, double overhead cams (DOHC) and four-valve cylinder heads, the YZF-R3 motor is designed for quick-revving performance and high-rpm efficiency. With a maximum power output of 30.9kW/42PS at 10,750 rpm, this potent engine delivers thrilling acceleration with an exciting ride and a broad spread of power.
The compact and lightweight chassis is manufactured from high tensile steel tubing that gives an optimum balance of strength and rigidity. For sporty and agile handling characteristics the YZF-R3's short wheelbase gives outstanding agility – while the near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution and accessible seat height delivers a balanced ride.
dual LED headlights
The new front fairing is equipped with YZF-R1 style headlights that underline the YZF-R3's strong genetic links with the larger R-series models. Utilising bright and long-lasting LED technology, the new dual headlights enhance both visibility and illumination with minimal power draw, while giving the bike a radical new look.
inverted front forks
For 2019, the YZF-R3 features an all-new 37mm inverted fork with optimised spring and damping settings. This new design gives a greater surface area for the sliding tube, significantly improving fork rigidity for sporty front-end feel and feedback without losing real-world comfort – and a new YZR-M1 inspired top clamp reinforces the radical YZR-M1 inspired style.
Thanks to the new lower fuel tank design and lowered handlebars, the new YZF-R3's ergonomics give an improved riding experience. As well as being extremely comfortable, the revised riding position makes it easy to grip the machine with your knees for improved confidence, especially when tucking aggressively behind the updated windscreen on the racetrack.
system with ABS
The 298mm floating-mount front disc brake ensures excellent stopping power with plenty of feel at the lever, while a 220mm floating disc handles the braking performance at the rear. And with its ABS antilock braking system, the YZF-R3 rider can ride confidently – even when traction is reduced in wet or slippery conditions.
The 17-inch wheels are fitted with new pattern 110/70-17 radial front tyre and a wide 140/70-17 radial rear tyre featuring five pairs of thin cast spokes that complement the bike's sleek R-series image. These cast aluminium wheels with light hollow axles are both strong and stylish, while minimising unsprung weight for refined handling performance.
Thanks to the engine placement and overall machine dimensions, the YZF-R3 features a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution – widely regarded as being the ideal set up for supersport bikes – giving enhanced handling performance, easy agility and improved road feel.
As well as its aggressive new looks for 2019, the YZF-R3 features updated multi-function LCD instruments that inform the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock and an oil change trip meter – all presented in a clean, modern layout.
