The Yamaha R3 is a fully-faired bike that will be positioned above the YZF R15.
Yamaha India chairman Eishin Chihana has revealed that the bike maker plans to launch the R3 and MT-03 in India by the end of this fiscal year.
The Yamaha R3 and MT-03 were showcased at a dealer conference in April this year. As per the latest reports, the R3 could go on sale in India sometime after December 2023. Whether the MT-03 will be launched alongside the R3 remains to be seen.
The Yamaha R3 is a fully-faired bike that will be positioned above the YZF R15. It is powered by a 321cc, liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine that makes 42 BHP and 29.5 Nm.
The MT-03 is the naked version of the R3. It uses the same 321cc engine and is expected to compete with the KTM Duke 390. The R3, on the other hand, will rival the KTM RC 390.
