2017 Yamaha R3
Great beginner bike
We finance all credit levels!
The Yamaha R3 is a welcome addition to the sub-500cc class long dominated by the Kawasaki Ninja. The R3 brings fresh design, modern looks, and performance to the market. With a new 321cc engine putting out over 41 horsepower to the wheels and slightly above 21 ft-lb of torque, the new R3 comes with ample power to justify the sport looks and riding position. As an entry level sport bike, Yamaha has designed the steel diamond chassis and KYB suspension to provide a softer ride than the R3’s older sibling in the R6 making it ideal to soak up everyday street conditions. The 30.7 inch stock seat height makes the R3 very accessible to riders of all heights, and taller handlebars allow for a more controlled upright riding position that will instill confidence in new riders. Yamaha’s R3 hits every critical area that an entry level sport bike should offer with a comfortable, upright riding position, smooth handling, great fuel economy and modern styling. All of this is backed by an impressive 321cc fuel-injected engine that outpaces the 250cc and 300cc competition. Riders looking for a stylish, lightweight and beginner friendly motorcycle with all the performance to justify its sport bike classification should strongly consider the Yamaha R3.
