A recall for the Yamaha YZF-R3 has been issued by brand’s Indian subsidiary. A total of 1,874 Yamaha R3 manufactured during July 2015 to May 2018 are being said possibly affected with the issue of radiator hose and torsion spring.
For this globally recalled issue, the Japanese bike maker said this defective hose may cause coolant leak from the radiator while the torsion spring (hose clamp) may widens. Well, on a happy note none of the Yamaha YZF R3 manufactured dated during the mentioned time period found affected with the fault. Still, the India Yamaha Motor will contact the R3’s owners individually for motorcycle’s checkup and issue rectification free of cost.
It’s not surprising for the Yamaha R3, earlier than this too, the company has recalled the motorcycle several times. Once for a faulty clutch and oil pump, secondly, for the fuel tank bracket and main switch-assembly and now for the radiator hose and torsion spring.
Other than this, the 2019 version of the YZF-R3 was recently showcased. With the fitments like a full-LCD digital instrument cluster, reworked front fairing and new 37mm USD forks from Kayaba, it was an upmarket model with next year updates. In addition to this, there’s alterations on the fascia like a full LED headlight setup with faux air intake and a taller windscreen for better wind deflection. However, the advanced technology of variable valve actuation (VVA) and a slipper clutch missed out here which are the part of new Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0. India launch for the motorcycle is likely sometimes mid-2019, so we could see the 2019 YZF-R3 with USD fork instead of conventional telescopic ones.
