The new Yamaha YZF-R3 features a host of upgrades and sharper handling as well. The riding ergonomics are sportier now, thanks to the low clip-on handlebars (lowered by 22 mm). Plus, the fuel tank is 31.4 mm wider and 20 mm lower than the outgone version. The fairing has been inspired by the ZR-M1 MotoGP racing motorcycle. The tall windscreen continues to offer excellent protection from wind-blasting at top speeds, besides improving the aerodynamics.
