Yamaha R3 Black India Showroom ReadyThe Yamaha R3 was spotted in a showroom-ready condition, covered in plastic at a dealership reportedly in Mumbai, hinting that the R3 just might get launched in India soon.

Is it the R25 or the R3? The question that has been lingering around in every Indian Yamaha enthusiast’s mind still remains unanswered. With the Japanese automaker tight-lipped about its next proposition for India, these new spy shots just might help shed some light on the manufacturer’s plans as the YZF-R3 was recently spotted in showroom-ready guise reportedly at a dealership in Mumbai. With a host of parts covered in plastic wrap, the all-black R3 does look ready for delivery. That said, we still await Yamaha’s official confirmation if the R3 will indeed hit the Indian market.

2015 Yamaha R3 SideComing to the specifications, the 2015 Yamaha R3 is essentially the bigger version of the R25 which went on sale last year. The bored out 321cc liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engine with fuel injection is tuned to produce 42 PS of power at 10, 750 RPM and 29.6 Nm of torque at 9000 RPM, paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike gets telescopic forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear while braking performance comes from twin discs at the front and rear. With a kerb weight of 169 kgs, the R3 gets a 50:50 weight distribution.

Incidentally, several units of the black Yamaha YZF-R3 were imported in the country in January this year and this could possibly be one of those units. Expected to be priced north of the Rs. 3 lakh (ex-showroom) mark, the R3 will be locking horns against the Kawasaki Ninja 300, KTM RC 390 and the likes in the segment. However, with the uncertainty lurking on Yamaha’s plans, the R25 still seems to be part of the speculations, at least till the official launch takes place later this year. While India awaits the R3’s launch, Yamaha has unveiled the MT-25 (R25 based street fighter) in Indonesia.
