It was back in 1961 that the company entered its very first international road race at the French Grand Prix. And to mark 60 years of racing success, Yamaha has created the very special R3 World GP 60th Anniversary featuring historic white and red racing colours – to pay tribute to the machines that took more than 500 wins in World Grand Prix racing between 1961 and 2021.
The R3 World GP 60th Anniversary’s white bodywork features the famous red ‘speed block’ graphics that were made famous by Yamaha’s legendary race bikes from previous decades. A red front fender and red stripe on the tank reinforce the GP pedigree – while the historic racing style is competed with golden wheels, a gold tank badge and a yellow race-style number plate.
The exclusive R3 World GP 60th Anniversary embodies 60 years of racing with the historic racing colour scheme, that was made famous by the company’s pioneering GP bikes. With its timeless red ‘speed block’ graphics, pure white fairing, golden wheels and 60th anniversary emblem, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary pays tribute to a special era in Yamaha’s journey.
The R3 World GP 60th Anniversary’s historic racing colour scheme replicates the famous design used on Yamaha’s Grand Prix race bikes from a previous era. Its pure white bodywork features the iconic red ‘speed block’ graphics, and to complete the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary’s authentic factory bike look there’s a red front fender, yellow number plate, golden wheels, gold tank badge – and a solid red stripe on top of the tank and tail.
Inspired by the Yamaha’s MotoGP® race bike, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary’s bodywork is sleek and aerodynamic. The central M1-style air duct gives this compact supersport a pure race-bred look – and with a high overall specification and idealized 50/50 weight distribution, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary is ready to thrill you on the street and track.
With its glaring face, this bike is pure R-Series, and features a dynamic front fairing and a race-type screen inspired by the iconic R1. Dual LED headlights and a central air duct work with the cross-layered fairing panels to maximize cooling airflow for the EU5 engine, making this the most outstanding supersport in the 300cc A2 license class.
With a compression ratio of 11,2:1, double overhead cams (DOHC) and 4-valve cylinder heads, the 321cc 2-cylinder engine is designed for quick-revving performance and high-rpm efficiency. With a maximum power output of 30,9kW (42PS) at 10.750 rpm, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary’s potent EU5 engine delivers thrilling acceleration with an exciting ride and a broad spread of power.
Whether you're an A2 license rider or someone who wants the ultimate lightweight supersport, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary has the technology, performance and style that you're looking for. Developed using the same no-compromise philosophy that goes into every R-Series model, this bike's race-bred DNA is built to thrill.
The compact and lightweight chassis is manufactured from high tensile steel tubing that gives an optimum balance of strength and rigidity. For sporty and agile handling characteristics the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary's short wheelbase gives outstanding agility – while the near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution and accessible seat height deliver a confident and balanced ride.
The front fairing is equipped with R1-style headlights that underline the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary's strong genetic links with Yamaha’s larger R-Series supersport models. Utilizing bright and long-lasting LED technology, the dual headlights produce excellent visibility and illumination with minimal power draw – and give the bike a true race-bred look.
The R3 World GP 60th Anniversary features 37mm KYB USD forks with optimized spring and damping settings. This design gives a large surface area for the sliding tube, that ensures high levels of fork rigidity for sporty front-end feel and feedback without losing real-world comfort – and the special top clamp reinforces the radical M1-inspired style.
Thanks to the low fuel tank design and low handlebars, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary's ergonomics give a pure supersport riding experience. As well as being extremely comfortable, the riding position makes it easy to grip the machine with your knees for improved confidence, especially when you’re tucking in close to the bodywork for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
Featuring five pairs of thin cast spokes that complement the bike's sleek R-Series looks, the 17-inch wheels are fitted with a 110/70-17 radial front tyre and a wide 140/70-17 radial rear tyre. These cast aluminum wheels with light hollow axles are both strong and stylish, while also minimizing unsprung weight for refined handling performance.
The 298mm floating-mount front disc brake ensures excellent stopping power with plenty of feel at the lever, while a 220mm floating disc handles the braking performance at the rear. And with its ABS anti-lock braking system, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary rider can ride confidently – even when traction is reduced in wet or slippery conditions.
Thanks to the engine placement and overall machine dimensions, the R3 World GP 60th Anniversary features a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution – widely regarded as being the ideal set up for supersport bikes – giving precise handling performance, easy agility and plenty of feedback from the road.
