Upcoming Motorcycles 2015 - Yamaha YZF-R3 - 1

While the Indian motorcycling enthusiasts are awaiting the quarter-litre Yamaha YZF-R25, the Japanese two-wheeler major has even bigger plans in mind. Import and export database website Zauba.com has revealed that Yamaha has imported two units of the YZF-R3 into the country for research and development purposes. The prices of these motorcycles imported from Indonesia stand at INR 188,107 per unit. The two latest members of the Yamaha’s YZF family, the R25 and the R3, were unveiled last year.

The new YZF-R3 comes with a newly developed engine and a lightweight chassis. At the heart of the YZF-R3 is a 321cc inline two-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that puts out 42PS of power and 29.6Nm of torque. The engine comes paired with constant mesh, 6-speed transmission. The R3 uses R-series technology which includes a direct-drive camshaft, forged pistons, carburized con rods, low-friction cylinders and much more.

The Yamaha R25, on the other hand, receives a 249cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that puts out 36PS of power and 22.6Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. The motorcycle gets a new, high-compression (11.6:1) engine which uses Yamaha’s DiASil (Die casting Aluminum-Silicon) cylinders for better heat dissipation and lighter weight.

Our earlier source based report suggested that the YZF-R25 will reach the dealerships by April 2015. We believe that Yamaha will utilise all the potential in the quarter-litre motorcycle market with the YZF-R25 before introducing the YZF-R3.

    Yamaha should launch not the R25 because the R3 can change the whole game in the indian market buy its features and looks and the price should be as per 2 to 3 lakh not more then that for R3 i will give a 4 star ratings

    Thanks Suvil for your reply :),
    1. There is gonna be only of R25 and R3, not both first of all. Suvil, it does not need to have a deep and expensive R&D to be done for making Single cylinder’s as Yamaha India have quite an experience in it. It may require few changes and adjustments to make it from Double to single and that will not cost Millions to them on the contrary if they develop the engines here it will cost less on the whole. And regarding the Inidan market, it is much more time bigger than the Indonesia’s. If you call India a handful what would you call Indonesia’s market?

    2. According to the safe side game that Yamaha India is playing now, there is no way that Yamaha’s will bring the double cylinder bike to India (Or else they would not have bought the bike for R&D, they would have straight forwardly imported them to the market here, a unit if has to be completely imported than purchasing it for R&D doesn’t makes a sense) considering the cost and import price or else we would have received the bike long before countries like Vietnam did. They ( Yamaha India ) are not going to build the bikes here but possibly assemble (chances are less of that too) so it will bring the CKD units (Except for engines) with engine being made locally and the bike assembled here, if the bikes are already in R&D.
    Yamaha India has lost the guts that they had in pioneering good products. Last few years they really played a safe side game focussing only on scooters or else it would be be our country who would have introduced the R25 rather than the Indonesia. There was and is no greater demand of a big brother of R15 than in india.
    I am a big Fan of Yamaha’s as my father was, but at this moment very disappointed.
    Our bikes like R15, Fazer etc. are locally built and sold in Indonesia where as, we have to get the imported ones. Doesn’t seem like a fair deal.
    Yamaha India should do something different rather than beating around the bush. Yamaha India was a trend setter but now it sits back, watch, and then act.
