2022 Yamaha YZF-R3 introduced in Taiwan: Check out its features
Japanese automaker Yamaha has launched the 2022 iteration of its YZF-R3 motorbike in Taiwan. Its debut in India seems unclear. The bike is available in a new Vivid Orange paintwork which mates a vibrant orange color with a Metallic Gray shade on the fairings and rear. It also flaunts "R3" logos on the sides. It draws power from a 321cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine.
- The new Yamaha YZF-R3 is a good-looking vehicle with decent performance and a hefty price tag. It might attract a select clientele in the Taiwanese market.
- The vehicle is also tipped to be introduced on our shores. It should be priced competitively and the competition in the luxury two-wheeler segment will be raised to a great extent.
The 2022 Yamaha YZF-R3 has a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, an upswept exhaust, a raised transparent windscreen, golden-colored front forks, fairings with vents, and arrowhead-shaped mirrors. The bike packs an all-LED setup for lighting, a digital instrument console, and rides on designer blacked-out wheels. It is up for grabs in Vivid Orange, Midnight Black, and Racing Blue color options.
Under the hood, the 2022 version of the Yamaha YZF-R3 draws power from a 321cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine. The motor churns out a maximum power of 40.4hp. However, the torque output is up by 0.98Nm compared to the outgoing model.
To ensure the safety of the rider, the 2022 Yamaha YZF-R3 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. It also gets ABS for better handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the sports bike are taken care of by inverted telescopic forks on the front side and a shock absorber on the rear end.
In Taiwan, the 2022 Yamaha YZF-R3 sports a price figure of TWD 2,70,000 (roughly Rs. 7.2 lakh). The premium two-wheeler is expected to make its way to our shores sometime later this year.
