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.
