Yamaha R3 (2019 onwards)

The 2019 version of the Yamaha R3 is a slightly more sports-oriented machine compared to its predecessor, but it still remains highly practical. It is a powerful motorcycle that can easily go over 100 miles per hour, but its handling is extremely smooth and predictable, which makes it a perfect choice for beginner riders.

Thanks to the small windshield and ergonomic seating position, the Yamaha R3 is comfortable enough for longer rides and commuting. Reliability is still excellent and you will get a great value for your money with the bike.

And, since the R6 is way too powerful for A2 licence and the R7 has to be restricted, the R3 remains the only fully A2 legal option available from the Yamaha sports bikes lineup.

A2 Licence Compliance

The Yamaha R3 is a 321cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 31 kW (41 bhp), which is within the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. No restriction is required, as the bike is fully A2 licence compliant.
