A new inverted fork offers enhanced suspension feel and feedback. The lower fuel tank and revised handlebar position improve rider ergonomics. And new Dunlop® radial tires boost grip and road feel.

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.

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.
- All-New Inverted Front Fork
For 2019, the YZF-R3 features an all-new 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 new 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, new Dunlop® radial tires offer enhanced grip and feedback, too.
- All-New R-Series Styling
The R3 features all-new bodywork that continues the legendary styling born from the YZR-M1 MotoGP® machine. Up front, the glaring face of the R3 features new LED headlights and a central air duct that works with the cross-layered fairing panels to maximize cooling airflow for the engine. Overall, the new 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.
- New 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.
