A new inverted fork offers enhanced suspension feel and feedback. The lower fuel tank and revised handlebar position improve rider ergonomics. And new Dunlop® radial tires boost grip and road feel.
321cc liquid-cooled, inline 2-cylinder engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range. With a 180-degree crank design and integrated counterbalancer, the layout minimizes vibrations for a smooth, refined engine character.High-Revving Engine Architecture
With a compression ratio of 11.2:1, double overhead cams (DOHC) and four-valve cylinder heads, the YZF-R3 motor is designed for quick-revving performance and high-rpm efficiency to deliver an exciting ride and broad spread of power.
For 2019, the YZF-R3 features an all-new inverted fork with optimized spring and damping settings. The inverted design allows the greater surface area for the sliding tube, significantly improving fork rigidity for sporty front-end feel and feedback without losing real-world comfort. The new fork design also includes an YZR-M1-inspired top clamp for improved supersport style.Monocross Rear Shock
The centrally-mounted single shock design centralizes mass and is tuned to strike a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance, making it capable across a wide range of uses, from urban commuting to trackdays.
