YAMAHA YZF R3
The Yamaha YZF-R3 is Yamaha’s response to the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and KTM RC390. Now, however, the Ninja 400 has made its debut, and the Honda CBR250RR and CBR300R are all giving it stiff competition globally. There aren’t any mechanical changes to the 2018 R3 other than the updation to BS4 emission norms, but new colour schemes (blue and black) and the addition of ABS have made it better value. However, it doesn’t offer upside-down front forks or an all-digital instrument cluster like the R15 V3 offers. On the other hand, it still has the sweet 41bhp, 321cc parallel-twin engine and the handling that can bring any man to his knee.
The YZF-R3 competes with the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Benelli 302R, and KTM RC390 in the Indian market. The Honda CBR250R will also be a competitor when launched.
At its launch price of Rs 3.48 lakh, it undercuts the Kawasaki Ninja 300 by Rs 12,000 and offers ABS as well, as well as a higher peak power figure. It is now the twin-cylinder sportbike to beat in the Indian market.
KAWASAKI NINJA 300
Kawasaki Ninja 300 looks more like a thing of future. The front sharp twin headlights of this bike broaden its face which helps this bike to get a fascinating look. Its long V-shaped pointed visor mounted with black colored rear view mirrors makes it look aggressive and sporty. It has an edgy front fender which is short in size but adds flavour to its front designing. The new design of alloy wheels don’t look much premium though but gels well with the overall appearance of this bike. The bike looks best when seen from sideways; its integrated engine cowl and side fairing adds motion to this bike. The air-inlets have been smartly designed and match the color theme on this bike. Its elegantly designed fuel tank looks premium with its name written on it. Kawasaki has placed split seats on the top of its integrated side panel and rear cowl. This tall positioned rear cowl and naked chain of Ninja 300 looks flashy at the back. Its LED tail light has also been placed in its rear cowl while the side indicators get fitted in its extended rear fender. Kawasaki has also added bulk to its rear tyre and silver finished silencer.
A very stylish dashboard has been equipped in the new Ninja 300. It sports an analogue tachometer which is placed right in the centre while other essential indicators are placed around it. There is a small LCD just below this tachometer which displays digital speedometer, odometer, fuel- gauge and 2-trip meter. The LCD also has a digital clock and uses white color for illumination at night.
