Features

Chassis / Suspension

  • INVERTED FRONT FORK: For 2019, the YZF-R3 features an inverted fork with optimized spring and damping settings. The inverted design allows the greater surface area for the sliding tube, significantly improving fork rigidity for sporty front-end feel and feedback without losing real-world comfort. The fork design also includes an YZR-M1-inspired top clamp for improved supersport style.
  • MONOCROSS REAR SHOCK: The centrally-mounted single shock design centralizes mass and is tuned to strike a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance, making it capable across a wide range of uses, from urban commuting to trackdays.
  • PLUSH, CONTROLLED SUSPENSION: 41mm KYB® front suspension offers 5.1 inches of travel for rider comfort and control, while a preload-adjustable rear shock allows tuning for passenger and cargo.
  • POTENT BRAKING WITH AVAILABLE ABS: The 298mm floating-mount front disc brake ensures excellent stopping power, while a 220mm floating disc handles the braking performance on the back. The YZF-R3 ABS model also features an antilock braking system to boost rider confidence and prevent wheel lock-ups in reduced-traction conditions.
  • SPORTBIKE-SPEC WHEELS AND TIRES: 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels with light hollow axles are both strong and stylish while minimizing unsprung weight for refined handling performance. For 2019, Dunlop® radial tires offer enhanced grip and feedback, too.

Engine

  • POTENT TWIN-CYLINDER POWERPLANT: 321cc liquid-cooled, inline 2-cylinder engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range. With a 180-degree crank design and integrated counterbalancer, the layout minimizes vibrations for a smooth, refined engine character.
  • HIGH-REVVING ENGINE ARCHITECTURE: With a compression ratio of 11.2:1, double overhead cams (DOHC) and four-valve cylinder heads, the YZF-R3 motor is designed for quick-revving performance and high-rpm efficiency to deliver an exciting ride and broad spread of power.
  • SIX-SPEED TRANSMISSION: A smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox ensures the rider always has the right ratio, whether riding through tight canyon corners or racetrack straightaways.
  • MODERN FUEL INJECTION: Downdraft induction fuel injection system provides easy starting, excellent fuel economy, and responsive performance in all conditions.
  • ADVANCED CYLINDER CONSTRUCTION: Yamaha’s unique all-aluminum DiASil cylinder is used to ensure excellent heat dissipation, with an innovative offset cylinder design that reduces horsepower loss and improves both power and fuel efficiency.
  • STRONG AND LIGHTWEIGHT PISTONS: Forged aluminum pistons—the same technology used for the YZF-R1® and YZF-R6®—means lighter weight and excellent strength at higher temperatures, ensuring reliability at higher rpm.
  • COMPACT EXHAUST SYSTEM: Short muffler design features modern styling and helps to centralize mass, improving agility for ultra-responsive handling.

New for 2019

  • ULTIMATE LIGHTWEIGHT SUPERSPORT: The YZF-R3 features a range of features to boost performance, quality and style. Sleek bodywork echoes Yamaha’s YZR-M1 MotoGP® machine, with high-tech LED lighting and instruments. A inverted fork offers enhanced suspension feel and feedback. The lower fuel tank and revised handlebar position improve rider ergonomics. And Dunlop® radial tires boost grip and road feel.

Other Features

  • R-SERIES STYLING: The R3 features bodywork that continues the legendary styling born from the YZR-M1 MotoGP® machine. Up front, the glaring face of the R3 features LED headlights and a central air duct that works with the cross-layered fairing panels to maximize cooling airflow for the engine. Overall, the body not only boosts refined styling from every angle, it is significantly more aerodynamic at high speeds, too.
  • REDEFINED SPORTBIKE ERGONOMICS: Thanks to lower fuel tank design and lowered handlebars, the rider is able to more naturally grip the machine for improved confidence, especially when tucking aggressively behind the updated windscreen on the racetrack.
  • LED LIGHTING: Thanks to the engine placement and overall machine dimensions, the YZF-R3 features a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution for enhanced performance and road feel.
  • DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION: The updated multi-function meter informs the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock and an oil change trip meter—all presented in a clean, modern layout.

Top Features

  • STYLINE: Featuring bodywork and ergonomics inspired by the MotoGP® YZR-M1®, the 2019 YZF-R3® is sleeker, more aerodynamic and more refined than ever before.
  • HIGH-REVVING SUPERSPORT ENGINE: Yamaha’s championship-winning technology gives the YZF-R3 a broad spread of power with exciting high-rpm performance.
  • UPGRADED SUSPENSION: The inverted fork works with a Monocross rear shock to provide exceptional handling, with balanced chassis rigidity, a near 50/50 weight balance, and damping and spring settings designed for a wide range of road conditions
  • COMPACT CHASSIS: With a fully-fueled weight of only 368 pounds and a seat height of only 30.7 inches, the YZF-R3 is ultra-light, nimble, and confidence inspiring—whether on tight city streets or wide-open racetracks.
  • PRACTICAL PERFORMANCE: A range of exclusive technologies ensures the YZF-R3 combines Yamaha’s legendary refinement and reliability with thrilling performance, all while sipping fuel at a efficient 56 mpg.
