LOVE it!when you put it that way
how did you find the ergonomics?
That's exactly how I felt!!! I took more pictures of the Blue one versus the red because it was so gorgeous! The designers really knocked the looks out of the park with its sexiness. Online the silver almost looks white but you really get up close it has a bit of sparkle to it. Amazing. I can't wait until the dealers get their first shipments.I desired a red r3 when I first saw one on line but quickly changed my mind when I saw the blue bike in person!! Absolutely Stunning !!!!!
and I think that launch date is at best, could be pushed for all we know at this point. just have to wait till we see the pictures roll inI've heard someone say that the R3 gets launched the first days of Feb for the USA. One thing i know for sure is that the R3 will be available in Europe the 20th of April. According to that one America is fantastic, you guys can choose between 3 colours and have more than 2 months advantage on the release. Cheers, just promise me to upload as much pictures as you can
Yes, the ergos are very comfortable and upright, just like the Ninja 300. It's slightly more forward than the Ninja 300 but not really that noticeable. If you look on Yamaha's website in the photos of the R3 there is a pic of a rider looking very upright while riding on the street.Did you sit on it? If so how does the riding position compare to the Ninja 300? Specs and visually, it looks very similar. Both have risers on the handlebars to put the handles well above the triple clamp. In addition the R3 wheel base is an inch shorter than the Ninja 300, so I think it is going to feel slightly smaller than the Ninja 300 and you will be riding only very slightly forward. That would work to my favor since I'm just under 5'7". You will not be forced to lean forward to the handlebars like you would in a race bike like the Gixxer 600 for example. The promotional video shows the Texas Tornado and his wife each riding the bike. She appears to be under 5'5", yet she is seated upright and not needing to lean to the handlebars. Actually I don't want an aggressive riding position since it would be a street and highway bike for me and not a race bike.
haven't seen it in person for myself but what i can tell you from pictures is that it seems to be glossy.Can anyone tell me if the white (I think) on the Red bike is matt or gloss finish?
