2021 Yamaha YZF-R3 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
- Potent Twin-Cylinder Powerplant
Yamaha’s 321cc liquid-cooled, inline 2-cylinder engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range. With a 180-degree crank design and integrated counterbalancer, the layout minimizes vibrations for a smooth, refined engine character.

With a compression ratio of 11.2:1, double overhead cams (DOHC) and four-valve cylinder heads, the YZF-R3 motor is designed for quick-revving performance and high-rpm efficiency to deliver an exciting ride with a broad spread of power.
- Six-Speed Transmission
A smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox ensures the rider always has the right ratio, whether riding through tight canyon corners or racetrack straightaways.
- Modern Fuel Injection
Downdraft induction fuel injection system provides easy starting, excellent fuel economy and responsive performance in all conditions.
- Advanced Cylinder Construction
Yamaha’s unique DiASil—a high-silicon aluminum alloy—engine block is used to ensure excellent heat dissipation, with an innovative offset cylinder design that reduces horsepower loss and improves both power and fuel efficiency.
- Strong and Lightweight Pistons
Forged aluminum pistons—the same technology used for the YZF-R1®—means lighter weight and excellent strength at higher temperatures, ensuring reliability at higher rpm.
- Compact Exhaust System
The short muffler design features modern styling and helps to centralize mass, improving agility for ultra-responsive handling.
- Inverted Front Fork
The YZF-R3 features an inverted fork with optimized spring and damping settings, significantly improving fork rigidity, front-end feedback and control feel. The design also includes a YZR-M1-inspired top clamp for improved supersport style.
- Monocross Rear Shock
The centrally-mounted single-shock design further centralizes mass and is tuned to strike a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance, for capability across a wide range of uses, from urban commuting to track days. It’s also adjustable for spring preload which accounts for passengers or cargo.
- Potent Braking with ABS
The 298mm floating-mount front disc brake ensures excellent stopping power, supported by a 220mm rear disc. The YZF-R3 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition YZF-R3 model also features an antilock braking system to boost rider confidence and prevent wheel lock-ups in reduced-traction conditions.
- Sportbike-Spec Wheels and Tires
Stylish 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels minimize unsprung weight for improved suspension responsiveness and refined handling. Grippy Dunlop® radial tires offer enhanced grip and feedback for sporty riding, too.
- Sleek R-Series Styling
The R3’s aggressive design continues the legendary styling born from the YZR-M1 MotoGP® machine and improves overall aerodynamics at high speeds, too. The glaring face of the R3 features compact LED headlights with a central air duct that maximizes cooling airflow for the engine.
- LED Lighting
Light Emitted Diode (LED) elements are used for both the taillight unit and headlights. Not only do LEDs offer long life with minimal power draw, they provide brilliant illumination, for confidence and visibility day or night.
- Refined Sportbike Ergonomics
Thanks to the low-profile fuel tank design and relatively compact handlebar position, the rider is able to naturally grip the machine for confidence, especially when tucking aggressively behind the windscreen on the racetrack.
- Perfectly Balanced
Thanks to the engine placement and overall machine dimensions, the YZF-R3 features a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution for enhanced performance, especially in dynamic canyon-carving or racetrack riding environments.
- Digital Instrumentation
The compact multi-function meter informs the rider of gear position, fuel capacity, real time and average fuel economy, water temp, clock and an oil change trip meter—all presented in a clean, modern layout.
