R6 throttle tube uses the exact same grip as the R3 throttle tube; therefore, it will match your stock R3 left bar grip. No need to replace.

If you did decide to get new grips, I would personally use Renthal soft (light gray) grips. I use them for roadracing, and, in my humble opinion, they offer the best feedback through the bars you can get. They may not offer the longest durability, but at $15 or less for a pair, you can't go wrong.

Just my $0.02!
