hmm ive never noticed any of those problems with my r3. but then again this is my first bike so i dont really have anything to compare it too hahaI'm looking to get an R3, however, a couple of issues cropped up while on a test ride.
One issue is that the engine is somewhat vibey at idle, and seems to keep at that level in the background as the rev's go up.
The second issue has to do with the transmission. I find the shifting from 1st, or 2nd, balky/notchy at times. I have read that it was supposedly be positive and smooth.
Are these issues only pertains to this test-bike, or that's how the R3 is.
In comparison to the test-bike, the Ninja 300 engine feels more refined and smoother. This can be said with the shifting as well. I did not rev past 7500 rpm on the R3 test-bike.
Forum's consensus would be appreciated.
