I am looking forward to the end of this winter. If all goes as planned, I will be buying the R3 this year :D I am still convincing myself that the bike is worth Five Thousand Dollars. I was wondering what your opinions are on this? Is the R3 truly worth 5K? Anyway, thanks for having me here! I have a lot of plans for my future with the R3 and I am also looking forward to sharing my experience and showing off the upgrades I have in mind.

It's a great bike, I think it's a no brainer as fart as a first bike.
I rode when I was 14-15, then I stopped, this summer when I got R3 and I gave it some gas, I thought holy ****, this thing goes :)
It looks great, costs very little, cheap on insurance, 3rd gear and you're already over speed limit on highway, what more would you want from a first bike ?
Take care and see you around :)

5K is definitely not to much for a motorcycle such as the Yamaha YZF R3. If the bike keeps getting more popular I can see a price increase.

If its your first bike, it might seem a bit expensive. You will come to find it is one of the cheaper bikes, especially since that price is for a brand new bike. Then again most in this displacement class are within a few hundred dollars of each other.

You can get used bikes for less, can get more engine for less, but obviously here, since you are just starting out, a small displacement bike is the right choice. I am just surprised you went new for your first bike. You know what they say about everyone drops their bike, would rather drop a used old bike than a new one, blah blah bla but meh, if you like it, buy it!

You wont know this till you actually have the bike and start riding, but yeah, no matter the price, it absolutely is going to be worth it. Its just money, all the fun you are going to have is definitely going to be worth seeing part of your wallet/checking account/savings account get smaller.

You know that saying "money cant buy happiness" ? Its a load of sh it. It can buy you a bike, and riding=happiness.

Lol, once you start buying gear to ride in, or accessories, you'll learn that $5k for a bike is nothing compared to those things.
