This is a topic that is always of interest to me as well. It's basically the first thing I try to learn about any bike. So, great minds, I guess, haha... Anyway, it depends a bit on the model year. Some of the pre-2019 models did have some serious issues. I don't remember what all, but it was enough that I would personally never buy one older than 2019. Some people are much less concerned about such things and wouldn't worry about it.Is there any known major issues with the r3 at certain miles? Had my r3 for 2 years and 10000 miles might switch to a vfr800 but it is conceivable that the r3's could push 100,000 miles reliably. Who has the highest mileage r3.
I stumbled on this old thread. I'm curious if others have similar opinions on the reliability of pre-2019 models. Frankly, if the 2015-2018 R3's have serious flaws, it's news to me. Anyhow, I'm curious what others think. Is this is one person's opinion (and he/she omitted to provide any details to substantiate his/her claim) or is this general and accepted knowledge? And if there are serious flaws, well what are they?Some of the pre-2019 models did have some serious issues.
