Planning to purchase a new sports bike this year? If you are considering to buy the Yamaha YZF-R3, you should wait for a while, as the Yamaha is all set to launch the new 2019 R3 in the coming months. If you are wondering why to wait for the 2019 model when you can already get all the awesome features and power in the existing model, here are a few reasons to help make up your mind.
The Yamaha YZF-R3 is one of the most popular bikes in India, for obvious reasons such as incredible power capacity, premium looks and lightweight body structure. It is even termed as the ideal bike for racing beginners.
The 2019 YZF-R3 will be launched as an upgrade over the current running model. It is expected to bear the following unique features:
1. A Bike for All
Whether you want to purchase a bike for everyday use or looking for the best racing bike for beginners, the 2019 Yamaha R3 is the ideal deal. The bike has been designed with a special focus on the cornering to allow the beginners to learn the racing tactics while experimenting more on corners. The handling has been improved with the use of USD forks.
2. A New, better-looking Console
The 2019 R3 will feature an all-new completely digital console which is rectangular in shape and has a digital tachometer, position indicator, speed meter, gear shift indicator, and other related features. The digital console looks and feels awesome as compared to the older, split screen.
3. Better Performance
The new 2019 Yamaha YZF-R3 with its first-in-segment 321cc parallel-twin engine will certainly be the most powerful bike in this range. The engine has been equipped with features like fuel-injection and liquid-cooling and is capable of producing 42 hp of max power at 10,750 rpm. The bike also generates a peak torque of 29.6 Nm at 9000 rpm. The best thing is that bike performs perfectly normal even on high revs of up to 8000 rpm.
4. Attractive Shades (Colors)
As opposed to the current R3 model, which was only available in the two mature shades of Racing Blue and Magma Blue, the upcoming 2019 Yamaha R3 will be released in three beautiful colors, including Yamaha Blue, Vivid White and Power Black.
5. Improved Handling
The new Yamaha R3 bike will have the tubular steel frame on the front, which is known to offer better stability and handling to the bike, especially at cornering.
The new features and upgrades in the 2019 R3 model are expected to come with a notable price hike. The bike is expected to bear a price tag of INR 3.70 lakh in India.
