“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Yamaha R3 launch in August, MT-320 coming March '16

2015 Yamaha YZF R3 First Ride Video Review

A lot has been said about Yamaha India's plan to bring in a small sportsbike since the R25 and the R3 were revealed. Will it be the R25 or the R3, will it be powered by a twin like it is abroad or a single, and to add to the confusion, spy shots of both bikes being tested on our roads have surfaced on the interwebs.

Now, we can put the debate to rest. We can re-confirm that it is the R3 that is on its way here. Launch is scheduled for August, though the date hasn't been finalised yet. It will be shipped to India in completely-knocked down (CKD) kit form from Indonesia, which also clears any doubt about Yamaha manufacturing the bike at one of its Indian plants. It will be available in three colours - red, blue and black - and ABS will be available as an option.

After Yamaha took the fairing off the R25 to create the MT-25, we'd told you something similar would also be done with the R3. It is coming to India, but it'll be called the MT-320, and not the MT-03, as we'd understood earlier. This, too, will take the R3's CKD route from Indonesia, with three colour options to choose from, and like with the R3, an ABS version will also be on offer. It will, in all likelihood, be showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo in February next year, and Yamaha will launch it right after that, sometime in March.

Now, with that out of the way, the only mystery is the price. Which shall remain so, but at least now that we know the bike's only a month away, we can take some solace in the fact that the wait isn't too long.
