2020 Yamaha YZF-R3 Motorcycle for Sale
New 2020 Yamaha Super Sport
Underneath the skin, the 2020 Yamaha Energy MotoGP Edition R3 is the same R3 we tested last year. That means you get a short-stroke DUAL OVERHEAD CAM parallel twin motor that displaces 321cc. Suspension on the R3 is by KYB, while the radial tires are supplied by Dunlop and mounted on cast aluminum wheels. Lightweight, compact, 321 cc, liquid-cooled, DOUBLE OVERHEAD CAMSHAFT, 8-valve (4-valves/cyl), fuel injected, inline-twin cylinder engine. The engine has been designed to provide solid performance right across the rev range, with very linear throttle response, low vibration & excellent fuel economy.Downdraft style, compact combustion chamber4 valves per cylinder to enhance low-to mid-range torquestraight intake path into the combustion chamber for excellent power outputThe YZF-R3 uses regular 87 octane gas.Valves are 26 mm (intake) and 22.5 mm (exhaust) in diameter.Isonite surface treatment on the valve stems for improved durability & wear resistancevalves feature carbon cutters on the valve stems to help reduce carbon build-up during slower speed operationValve adjustment interval is every 42,000 kilometer.Automatic cam chain tensioner.reduces mechanical engine noise & maintenanceLightweight, all aluminum DiASil cylinder (die cast all aluminum cylinder with silicone content).offers outstanding cooling performance / heat dissipation for consistent power deliveryreduces weight since there are no heavy liners & cylinder is made completely of aluminumOffset cylinder design.cylinder is offset seven mm relative to the crankshaft (to the exhaust side)reduces frictional losses between the pistons & cylinder wall during the power strokeimproved power output & improved fuel economy180-degree crankshaft with uneven firing order.helps reduce "pumping losses" for max power outputprovides an interesting exhaust noteGear driven "primary coupled-force" balancer shaft.reduces engine vibration for exceptional rider comfortLightweight forged aluminum pistons.provide fast engine responsereduce weightreduce mechanical vibration for excellent durabilityCarburized connecting rods (carburizing is a form heat treating).excellent strength & durability"Closed loop" 32 mm throttle body fuel injection system.system uses an idle speed controller (ISC) to maintain a steady idle regardless of engine temperature12-hole injectors for optimum fuel atomizationsystem is tuned to provide terrific rideability and linear throttle control.close-loop system uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissionsAirbox utilizes a viscous paper-type air filter.Compact, six gear transmission.ratios specially designed to suit the character (torque & power) of the enginefifth & sixth gears are overdrive gears to reduce engine rpm at highway speedsCompact, wet-type, multi-plate clutch.ensures consistent, positive shiftinglight, easy clutch lever pull.Low-mounted, 2-into-1 exhaust system.utilizes a short design muffler fitted with a 3-way catalyzer to reduce exhaust emissionslow mounted design centralizes mass for agile handling & lightweight feelingMaintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI).produces a strong spark for fast startsprovides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at any rpmEasy access spin-on type oil filter & engine oil drain plug.fast & easy oil changesoil change interval is 5,000kms after the initial 1,000 kilometer break-in oil changeAir Induction System (AIS... not ram air).reduces harmful exhaust emissionsinjects fresh air into exhaust ports to fully burn any unburnt fuel, further reducing exhaust emissionsCHASSISLightweight, diamond-type, high-tensile, steel framefeatures optimized rigidity balance for light, agile handling with excellent stabilityengine is a stressed member of the chassis, allowing a lighter, more compact main frame designframe features a mix of both solid & rubber engine mountsElectrostatic paint helps prevent corrosionThe riding position is 1 of the most important features of the R3. Despite its supersport styling, the R3 offers superb rider comfort thanks to its upright riding position.Key chassis geometry figures include:1380 mm (54.3") wheelbase25 degrees of rake & 95 mm of trail50 / 50 front to rear weight distributionchassis dimensions and shape have been designed to centralize mass & lower the centre of gravity to provide the rider with light, agile handlingTapered, long design, high tensile steel swingarm.lightweight design reduces unsprung weight for superior suspension performanceexcellent rear wheel traction & control37 mm KYB upside-down (inverted) fork offers 130 mm (5.1") of wheel travel.plastic chip guards help prevent damage to the fork tubes & sealsAdjustable Monocross link-less rear suspension with 125 mm (4.9") of wheel travel.features a single KYB rear shock with seven levels of preload adjustabilityadjustable design allows rider to tailor preload settings to match load & road conditionANTILOCKING BRAKES-equipped 298 mm floating front disc brake squeezed by a twin-piston caliper.provides solid stopping powerbrake force & feel are tailored towards new ridersANTILOCK BRAKES-equipped 220 mm floating rear disc is squeezed by a lightweight, single-piston, slide-type caliper.Antilock brakes (ANTILOCKING BRAKES).controlling ECU & hydraulic unit are combined into a single compact unit to reduce weight & centralize masswhen ANTILOCK BRAKES system senses impending wheel lock-up (via active type wheel sensors) it regulates hydraulic braking pressure to the point just before the wheel or wheels lock-upANTILOCKING BRAKES provides excellent control under hard braking or when braking on wet, slippery or loose surfacesLightweight, cast-aluminum 10-spoke mag wheels.front wheel size is MT2.75-17 fitted with a 110/70-17 tirerear wheel is MT4.00 fitted with a 140/70-17 tireLightweight hollow axles front & rear.Clip-on style handle bars.provide a supersport image but offer a comfortable, more upright riding position since they are mounted above the top triple clampHandlebar position is 22 mm lower than previous model14-litre fuel tank with styling adopted from R1 and R6 models.offers a slim design with great knee grip"reserve" portion of the tank is three litres (low fuel light will illuminate)tank is steel with plastic covers, which can reduce costs in the event of damageSeparate rider & passenger seats with low 780 mm (30.7") seat height.offer excellent comfortnarrow-design rider seat makes it easier to touch feet flat on the groundpassenger seat can be removed & replaced by the optional Genuine Yamaha Accessory rear seat cowl if desiredFeature-rich liquid crystal (LCD) multi-function meter.data includes speedometer, bar tachometer, fuel meter, odometer, tripmeters (2), fuel trip meter, gear position, flasher indicators, clock, temperature meter, fuel economy, oil trip meter, ANTI LOCK BRAKES indicator, adjustable shift timing light and high beam indicatorWarning lamps: oil pressure and engine troubleback lighting is adjustableRace inspired full fairing.New design inspired by larger R-series modelsNew design translates to a seven percent reduction in drag and an 8km/h (5 mph) increase in top speedRace-derived air intake duct directs flow to the radiatorLED headlamps with updated design.Brilliant rear LED tail lightunique running / brake light displayINFORMATIONHelmet holderLightweight aluminum footrests & mountsThreaded mounts on swingarm for rear race standExcessive lean angle sensor... if unit is on its side the engine will shut downLockable steeringFolding mirrors with chrome platingStylish rear fender extension helps reduce splash in wet conditionsLightweight, low-maintenance sealed battery (batteries should be charged during winter storage)Yamaha Diagnostic Tool coupler is located under the passenger seat.
