This is your everyday superbike that takes you on the racetrack wherever you go. Built directly from the R-Series DNA, Yamaha offers pure speed to any rider of any experience level. A blur on the road that is defined by stability and low vibration at high speeds with an aerodynamic structure and mass forward silhouette; experience velocity at a whole new level with the YZF-R3.
