New R3 rider from Nelson NZ

Greetings from Nelson, New Zealand.

Just bought a new R3 and breaking it in/learning it's abilities. Glossy black with red decals, not sure if it's a model year 2015 or16 but came with 0 Kms.

Been riding since May 2016 and previously using a Yamaha MT03 which I still keep up in Auckland as travel there a lot for work.

Welcome Ridders!

The Black "Raven" version is from 2015... it changed to the Matte Gray in 2016 and now a new Matte Black for 2017.
Congrats on the new bike!

Thanks for the welcomes.

Yeah, just moved to Nelson and just starting to try out some of the roads.

Got to wondering a bit more about the model year and sure enough you're right, I checked up my VIN here - yamaha-motor.co.nz/support/faq/how-can-i-identify-the-year-my-motorcycleatv-was-manufactured

Sadly can't post links yet.......
