In 2015, Yamaha decided to challenge the small bike establishment with their release of the R3, and the end result was impressive. Sport Rider opened up their review by simply saying it was “worth the wait." Thanks to a 321cc motor, it was faster than the competition from Honda and Kawasaki, and it quickly became Yamaha’s best selling motorcycle in the US.

This example is (VIN: MH3RH15Y2HK001186).

This R3 was accepted as a trade-in by our neighbors at Bartel’s Harley-Davidson so the history is unknown, but it runs well and simply needs a new owner to keep enjoying it!

The odometer shows 22,402 miles.

There are a few minor nicks in the bodywork.

We also note what looks like dried Gorilla Glue (or similar) in the back of the headlights.

There is a scratch on the exhaust, and it looks like a previous owner attempted to pull the baffle out of the exhaust.

Capable enough to entertain experienced riders while approachable enough to get a new rider started, this R3 could easily serve as a way to teach your friend how to ride or to get your first trackday experience yourself!
