Hello everyone! I have ridden for about 4 years. I started on a 2017 Buddy Eclipse 125 to learn and get my endorsement with, then bought a 2020 Kawasaki Z125, which is by far my main ride since I brought it home. I also own a 1986 Honda Helix scooter that was just too good to pass on; 1700 original miles, perfect shape, and the price was perfect.

I lurked this forum for a month or so after I became interested in the R3. It’s a beautiful bike for its class and I think it would be a great logical step up from the Z (which I plan on also keeping... it’s just too fun). Always wanted a ”Sport Bike” and being a little on the smaller stature end of things makes me think The R3 would be close enough to perfect for me.

By joining this forum I hope to gain information about the R3 and solidify the purchase that j will inevitably be making in the coming days.

Would love to chat with R3 owners to hear first-hand experiences with these bikes. I’m still a novice in my mind, so I assume that the R3 would be a logical step up from the Z125. So... let’s chat!

Thanks for having me!

I've been ridding for over 40 years (I bought a 2019 R3 last fall). I've run the full circuit..... I've owned everything from a CFR450R, Goldwing, Grom, liter-bikes, and nearly every in between... I had the luxury of having parents that supported me riding throughout my whole childhood (as long as I can remember)... Not everyone was raised this way. You seem like you're doing it the right way. Learning a new skill is MUCH harder as an adult. The R3 is SUCH a good platform!!! Very easy to ride, yet still keeps the interest of veteran riders as well. Such a perfect blend of ease of riding, and performance- and just plain fun!!! I have a dedicated FZ-07 for the track. My R3 is only for the street. Welcome to the forum!!! Most people here are very friendly :cool:-

Thank you! Diving into research tonight.

This is what I was hoping to hear. I still consider myself a novice rider, so I’m not looking for a 1000+cc bike that would just end up getting me in trouble. TBH I’ve never been into the idea of going crazy fast and my first few two-wheelers kept me on the safe, slower side of things. I was hoping that a 300 could work perfectly for mostly city streets with the occasional 60-70mph zone if I needed to hop on the highway for a few miles (even if it’s in the slow lane!) 😂

Thanks again for the replies!
