Omg we're all dead.
Dont worry my friend. not all R3 have this..Omg we're all dead.
The R3 here does not have ABS system... If only Yahama here offers ABS system that would be greatMine have the ABS sensor ring where that is.
And a few things look different.
Sorry for being inappropriate but i have encountered so many fake stuff in my entire life that were made in china. Even their food are now being faked (OT). maybe thats the reason why I automatically presume chinese stuff are low quality?... anyways, i dont think Yamaha will jeopardize its quality just because the Rims are made in china. They run the bike in extreme quality control before we get our hand in their product.I don't know why people automatically presume made in China with low quality. Many US manufacturers set up factories there. Under the right equipment and quality control, supervision etc, there isn't a issue.
The problem is due to the laws there everything they learn gets used to make knock off products. Improper equipment, training, quality control etc. Know you have your junk products.
I owned this photo my friend.. I wonder who your colleague is.. ?Hi everyone, I just want to share what my colleague discovered with his R3. He just recently bought the new yamaha R3 weeks ago. He recently discovered while washing his R3 that the rims were made from China. I don't know if this is true but I decided to go to the nearest Yamaha store to confirm if this is true and to my disbelief the rims does says "Made in China". I'm not sure if this would affect the overall build of the bike but since we all know that Chinese quality are not that good. I asked the Yamaha sales person where the bikes were manufactured and he said It came from Indonesia. I guess Yamaha supplied from China and manufactured in Indonesia that's why its relatively cheap compared to the Kawasaki Ninja... but anyways, I would like to hear from you if you have the same Rims. Does this affect the overall build of the bike? (we never know if there are Chinese made parts throughout the bike)..
Any response is greatly appreciated.
