Yamaha YZF-R3 has suspended the YZF-R3 in India as it does not meet the upcoming BS6 emission standards. The brand shipped the R3 overseas, however it is not BS6-compliant and has not come to India. Yamaha YZF-R3 is believed that this bike will be launched in the near future or a year from now after receiving the Euro5/BS6 update globally. The global cruiser gets a new plan that includes dropping front lamps, new fairing and a taller windscreen. It also has a fully computerized instrument console. The riding position of the new cruiser is quite sporty, with a 22 mm lower clasp on the handlebar. It is powered by the same 321cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor that produces 42PS and 29.6Nm of torque as seen in the old bike.
Yamaha Engines India has launched the new YZF-R3 cruiser in the country, priced at Rs 3.48 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The full-fare offer returns to the Indian market after almost 12 months, as the manufacturer had pulled the bike from its shelves in April due to non-overhauling on BS-IV discharge standards. Change is now visible in India. The Yamaha R3 has received a number of changes for the new year and was introduced worldwide in November. Mechanicals continue as before, as the bike is powered by the same 321 cc in-line, twin-chamber, fluid cooled motor that is tuned to deliver 41 bhp at 10,750 rpm and 29.6 Nm of peak torque at 9000 rpm.
