2022 Yamaha YZF-R3: Yamaha’s Supersport Point of Entry
Designed and marketed as Yamaha’s perfect entry point into their supersport motorcycle family, the R3 delivers a humble yet exciting package that is easily manageable for both beginner and intermediate riders. It’s lightweight, agile, and puts down quite a bit of power despite it’s smaller single-cylinder engine making it one of the perfect places to start when looking to get into team blue’s 2022 model lineup.
The 320cc inline-twin lays down a capable 50 horsepower which is more than enough to get you up to highway speed. Unline other starter-motorcycle models, the R3 comes fully equipped with quite a few helpful rider-aids such as dual zone ABS, anti-slip, and traction even control.
Thanks to its low pricepoint despite the ample features of this motorcycle, the R3 makes a perfect starter motorcycle with some room to grow thanks to its decent power output. The R-Series-derived styling is the cherry on top, packaging this starter/intermediate motorcycle with some seriously good looks so you know you’re getting a good deal.
In addition to the rest of the R-Series family, the R3 is available in a limited edition ‘World GP 60th Anniversary Edition” to celebrate the Japanese OEMs 60-year commitment to racing motorcycles. Gold componentry accents the heritage livery of this special edition making it a truely special edition for a very special milestone in Yamaha’s racing history.
