What is it supposed to be? a 300cc bike?
It would make a good competition for the current offerings in that size range by Honda and Kawasaki here in the US if that is the case.

That is assuming that Yamaha USA decides to bring it over here. I think it would sell well here, considering the numbers of bikes in that range sold every year.

Yeah, it's actually a 320 cc bike, and today we have the first videos of it



In the second video, go directly to 1:40 , to see the bike and skip the cheesy trash.

In the US it will be around 4999 $ .

In the EU , it will be slightly more expensive than the Ninja 300 (obviously .... Yamaha must overprice this motorcycle just like it does with almost any other bike). The Ninja 300 is 5595 EUR, the 300 SE is 5745 EUR and the 300 30th anniversary edition (from 2015) is 5645 EUR.

My guess is the new R3 will be something like 5999 EUR. Keeping in mind that a CBR500R is also 6000 EUR, it makes the R3 pointless in my view.

Yeah, but it will be expensive as f.... I mean, when the ninja 300 came out, I was thinking it was a bit much for a 300, and now the yamaha will still be a bit more, so yeah..
I'd rather buy a brand new CBR500R for that money, and never look back. :)
