Yamaha YZF-R3 vs 1000cc Sportsbike

I can't get over just how fast the Yamaha YZF-R3 is in daily life. Even with the stock tires not doing much for my confidence, this 320cc Yamaha is fast and hot knife going through butter. Or as has been the case lately, a fast knife going through an unbearably hot weather.

A few weeks ago, my friend and I went for a short highway run on a modern 1000cc sportsbike and the Yamaha YZF-R3, and the 320cc Yamaha was completely at ease keeping up with the liter bike that has more than three times the YZF-R3's engine displacement.

My friend on his 1000cc sportsbike couldn't help but notice how effortlessly the Yamaha YZF-R3 picks up speed and I can verify that. Although I've gotten used to it now, it still happens that I took down at the speedometer and see numbers that I wasn't expecting. And it's not just speed, though.
The Yamaha engine's performance is pretty consistent and despite the hot weather, the Yamaha YZF-R3 doesn't get uncomfortably hot even in traffic. I've been wanting to stick a '46' decal on the Yamaha YZF-R3 for a long time now.

But I need to get a detailed wash and polish job done before I can do that. The Yamaha YZF-R3 fully deserves it...Tag: Yamaha YZF-R3 R3 300cc Parallel-Twin Small-Capacity-Bike Sportbike Performance
