Yamaha YZF-R3, LAMS

Hire our beaut little LAMS Approved Yamaha R3 rocket ship. She'll keep up with the big boys on the straights then eat them alive through the twisties. Low seat height and light weight, my wife loves it more than she does me... Fun all the way.


YAMAHA YZF-R3. Lightweight, nimble, fast, smooth and comfortable. What more could you want from this super little LAMS Approved pocket rocket from Yamaha? A rental motorcycle packed with features – ABS? yep got that. Fuel injection? yep got that. 6 speed box? yep got that too. Cycle World say;


“Once you reach 70 mph or so in fifth or sixth gear, the bike purrs right along. There is a fair amount of roll-on acceleration available at speed, which is really impressive considering it’s only a 321cc engine. Wind protection is good, as I was able to get tucked nicely behind the windscreen on the highway – the more you ride it the better it gets- comfortable and accessible yet still sporty”


Couldn’t agree more. Perfect for those on a budget or wanting a lightweight hire motorbike with a low seat height but still enough get up and go to get gone. Use this for a quick trip around the South Island or a complete New Zealand tour, she’ll love it either way.
