There is an on going discussion in R3 owners in India nowadays. Many are having vibes in their R3s which can lead to hand numbness if ridden for long time. Also the stock engine oil is not good for a bike like this. I'm now using Motul 7100 10w40 which is not a big leap to reduce the vibes by the way. Most people get vibes in certain RPM like 4.5-6. Some have vibes in more areas too. Whoever having the vibes, still now there has been no exact root cause of issue that has been found. Vibes are coming from the seats, tank and foot pegs.
Some say it's because of the poorly built or assembled in India. Some put double sided tapes and rubber bushes for that.

Anyone facing such issues globally?

It's a twin engine, and twin parallels generally have secondary harmonics, iirc. Sure my R3 has some vibes, but nothing that I find excessive. My Ninja 25 also had some vibes at various rpms. My I-4 FZ6R was pretty smooth.

Want to reduce vibes like the smooth Honda 500 bikes? Guess what, just add another 55 pounds ...
