2010's motorbikes' technology.

It looks cooler in real than the catalogue.
What I find disappointing that it looks cheap in details; it has a big difference with Ninja 250. Especially it is clear that they tried cost cutting around the step, top bridge and switches. Disappointing.

<engine performance>
As it has been said, compared to R25, the power coming from 70cc difference is big. I compared with a demo one. With 250cc, it felt less dependable. With R3, even when the RPM dropped, with the accelerator wide open, RPM goes up, which I find easy to ride. R25 is said that it is to rev it high up and R2 is to enjoy riding in a relaxed manner. Having said that, you can ride R3 aggressively, too. It is good over 7000rpm but it is even better over 9000rpm. But about 10000rpm near RedZone works nicely and makes good sound. Once I was into 2st 250cc, but 4st 320cc is also fun.

Steering is very light. When I drive into S shaped curve, I get excited. I am not particularly good at riding, but this is easy to ride as it turns well at corners with every speed; high, mid or low. 2010's motor cycles are amazing. As for the tires, it seems there are many negative opinions. I do agree that the grounding performance is not so good sometimes. It is stable, but sometimes it feels odd. When I get them changed to radial tires, I wonder what kind of difference I can see. I look forward to it.

What I find problematic is its brake. Neither the front and the rear don't work well. After the delivery, I changed the front one to mesh brake line (it was expensive...) and front and the rear pads, which made it somehow acceptable. What I am unhappy the most is its rear brake. ABS starts working too early when it is running fast. When I want to control the posture or when I want to drag the rear brake, this can be stressful. Also, before stopping, no mater how much I pressed, it was difficult to stop where I wanted to.

The sitting position is rather tall, but I changed it to up handle bars. (I do totally accept you opinion that I should have gone for MT-3). Thanks to it, I don't get tired after riding for about 300km a day. It is amazing that my bottom doesn't get hurt though the seat is that thin, However if you are 160cm tall or so, it is difficult to put your feet firmly on the ground. My toes do touch, but when the ground where I intend to place my feet is lower, I do experience dangerous moments.
As for full cowl, you cannot expect much wind protection. Unless you try to hit the gas on expressways, you shouldn't have any problem. But when you try to accelerate or when the wind is strong, you cannot avoid it being unstable with its lightness.

Surprisingly easy. It is almost like a culture shock if you are changing from a big scooter.

<fuel efficiency>
As I used to ride 2st, I don't mind fuel consumption, but it definitely does better than 20km/l.

Good Review

Yamaha YZF-R3

Oh My God! Salamat sa magandang blessing ngayong buwan na ito kasi ang pangarap ko na motor ay mapasa akin na rin ang Yamaha YZF-R3 ang sporty masyado na motorcyle at ang ganda pa namamn nitong tingnan. Makina din nito ay ang ayos at original talaga ang kinabit kaya wala ng problema kasi sigurado akong bago to. Ang bilis din naman tumakbo nitong aking motor na bago kasi kaya nitong makioag habulan sa mga sasakyan. Sobrang sarap din naman gamitin nitong aking motor mas relax sa pakiramdam. Malakas nga naman lumaklak ng gasolina ang motor na ito pero okay lang din naman sa akin to kasi hanep naman sa ganda ang aking motor.

Good Review
