Yamaha R3 owner recreates the iconic MV Agusta F4 RC AMG look. Gets customised decals with aftermarket parts on the bike
The Yamaha YZF-R3 is the entry-level performance bike from the Japanese manufacturer, which is loved by the enthusiasts. It gets styling inspired by the Yamaha YZF-R1, which is the flagship bike of the brand and it looks quite aggressive too.
Here is a customised Yamaha YZF-R3 that gets race decals giving it the MV Agusta-AMG partnership-inspired look. The white and red custom decals look extremely sporty on the bike. The sticker job gets a new red and white paint highlight that is pasted across the bike, giving it a new identity. Even the headlamps have been updated to new ones and new decals are placed on the front, making it look as aggressive as it can be.
The biggest highlight is on the side where the livery takes up space on the body of the bike. It gets the huge AMG logo alongside the Yamaha logo. The bike also features aftermarket crash guards and aftermarket exhaust system. The aftermarket exhaust increases the power output but the exact figures are not mentioned.
Interestingly, MV Agusta partnered with AMG in 2015 to launch performance version of the F4 RC. The bike received an exactly similar sticker job as we see on the Yamaha YZF-R3. It was a limited edition bike and only a handful of them was made.
At the rear, the Yamaha YZF-R3 gets aftermarket LED blinkers in place of the number plate bracket. Everything else on the bike remains stock including the engine. With the stock exhaust, the 321cc, liquid-cooled engine of the Yamaha YZF-R3 produces a maximum power of 42 PS and a peak torque of 29.6 Nm. It gets a 6-speed transmission. Even the brakes and suspension are stock.
Yamaha unveiled the 2019 YZF-R3 in the US market last week and it has changed a lot from the current model. The new bike gets revised headlamps, new fairing and looks very similar to the Yamaha’s MotoGP bike, the YZR-M1.
