You gave my hopes up!
Instead of reviews im sure soon we'll see some articles on what the pro's think it will be, maybe even they'll interview people from Yamaha?

Prediction review from pro:

"Awesome starter bike and top quality bike. A bit aggressive seating than the ninja 300 and cbr300. Test out faster and better on track then it's competitor. Lean is good and flickable. Stock tires holds out well on corner. Suspension could be better, but respond very well. Brakes is better quality than it's competitor and you can tell the difference. The price is a little bit more then the ninja 300 and great competitor to the RC390. A must have bike for starter and even veteran. This bike probably is a game changer and will make our bike of the year." (something like that from -MCN, -Motorcycle USA, -etc...)

Nice. I look forward to seeing how the R3 compares to the RC390 on the track.

The R3 def seems to be a track focused lower CC motorcycle just like the RC390

I have a feeling it might be a tight battle.
Both brands are capable of creating fast sporty bikes.

Once the R3 comes out and the RC390 I will probably test ride both of them for about 30min to an 1hour with GoPro.

I take it that there are KTM dealers near you?
seems like dealers are few and not as easy to find

Yeah, lucky I got all the dealers here lol. We have 4 KTM dealer in my state and closes one to me is 20 minute away, Truimph dealer and BMW dealer are together within 20 minute from me, a bunch of Kawasaki dealer closes one is 10 minutes. Yamaha dealer is about 20 minutes, and Suzuki dealer is about 20 minutes too. 20 minutes are not bad of a travel since I like to travel lol and willing to drive 4 - 6 hours anywhere if neccessary. All dealers are here is because probably due to "Tail of the Dragon."

Awesome! Nothing better than that combination of dealers near you, being that the dragon is their, it makes sense why they set up their.

I guess you've been to the dragon many times?

Bing here.

Never tried google's, but apparently the chrome browser comes with the translator, asks if you want to translate pages not in your language on the fly

Seems like information on the R3 has died down quite a bit, don't see anything new floating around, looks like those real reviews could be much farther away!

Yeah, we really have to wait until the main magazines and YouTube channels get their hands on an R3 and put it up against the main contenders (and possibly R125 and R6).

Only then we will know if it is as good as we hope it is.
