With its high-revving 321cc engine, compact chassis and aggressive M1 MotoGP®-inspired fairing, the R3 is Yamaha’s ultimate A2-licence supersport. And now featuring the dynamic racing colours from Yamaha’s historic GP bikes, the exclusive R3 World GP 60th Anniversary takes R/World to the next level with its iconic race-bred style.
It was back in 1961 that the company entered its very first international road race at the French Grand Prix. And to mark 60 years of racing success, Yamaha has created the very special R3 World GP 60th Anniversary featuring historic white and red racing colours – to pay tribute to the machines that have racked up more than 500 wins in World Grand Prix racing between 1961 and 2021.
The R3 World GP 60th Anniversary’s white bodywork features the famous red ‘speed block’ graphics that were made famous by Yamaha’s legendary race bikes from previous decades. A red front fender and red stripe on the tank reinforce the GP pedigree – while the historic racing style is completed with golden wheels, a gold tank badge and a yellow race-style number plate.
