For the quarter-litre segment, Yamaha has revealed new colours for the 2021 Yamaha YZF-R3. There are two variants on offer, the YZF-R3 in a bright electric teal and red scheme, and the MotoGP Edition which features the racing colours of the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team.

Currently available for the US market, the 2021 model year R3 will be on sale beginning November 2020. Pricing for the base version R3 in electric teal is USD 5,299 (RM22,075) while the MotoGP Edition will be retailing at USD 5,599 (RM23,324).

The YZF-R3 comes with a 321 cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled parallel-twin with a power output of 42 hp at 10,750 rpm and 28.8 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm. This compares against the 35.5 hp at 12,000 rpm and 23.6 Nm of torque at 10,000 rpm for the Yamaha YZF-R25 we get in Malaysia.
