Yamaha R3

Yamaha R3 is powered by a twin cylinder, 321cc, DOHC, 8 Valve, engine with 42ps of power. The bike is expected to be a CKD from Indonesian plant. Being CKD, it is expected to touch the price of Ninja but may undercut by a bit to gain the initial sales figures.

Yamaha R3 may come with two version, with and without ABS.

Yamaha is also considering a naked version, it would either be MT-25 or MT-320 based on the under prints of R25 and R3 respectively. The bike may be displayed and make its debut in Indian Auto Expo 2016. Both possibility are high as to compete with KTM line up, Yamaha may opt for local manufacturing and bring more cheaper 250cc version or to manage logistics more effectively, they may bring the MT-320 also.
