The striking Yamaha 2022 YZF-R3 World GP 60TH Anniversary Edition Sports Bike has an edition that pays tribute to Yamaha’s passion for racing and winning at the highest levels of motorsport from the distinctive 60th Anniversary Yamaha Heritage White and Rapid Red chain-block livery to the numerous special detailing touches including gold forks, gold wheels. Yamaha factory race-bike gold Tuning Fork emblems, black levers, and special commemorative badging on the airbox cover.
The Yamaha 2022 YZF-R is Yamaha’s championship-winning technology that offers a wide range of power and exciting high-rpm performance. Thanks to perfectly balanced chassis stiffness, a near 50/50 weight balance and damping and spring settings improved for a wide range of road conditions, the R3’s inverted fork combines with a Monocross rear shock to give superb handling.
The YZF-R3 latest edition is ultra-light, nimble, ad confidence-inspiring on anything from tight city streets to wide-open racetracks, with a fully-fueled weight of only 375 pounds and a seat height of only 30.7 inches. It also blends Yamaha’s famed refinement and reliability with exhilarating performance providing all while using fuel at an efficient 56 mpg thanks to a variety of innovative technology.
The brand new Yamaha 2022 YZF-R3 World GP 60TH Anniversary Edition Sports Bike offers the 321cc liquid-cooled inline 2-cylinder engine from Yamaha generates incredible power and performance across the whole rpm range. The configuration reduces vibrations for a smooth and refined engine character thanks to a 180-degree crank design and incorporated counterbalancer. The Yamaha 2022 YZF-R3 motor is built for quick-revving performance and high-rpm efficiency having a compression ratio of 11.2:1, DOHC (Double-Overhead Cams), and 4-valve cylinder heads to give a thrilling ride with a broad range of power.
Whether riding through tight canyon turns or racetrack straightaways, a smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox guarantees the rider always has the appropriate ratio. In all weather conditions, the downdraft induction fuel injection technology provides effortless starting, good fuel economy and responsive performance. The engine block is made of Yamaha’s exclusive DiASil—a high-silicon aluminum alloy—and features a revolutionary offset cylinder arrangement that removes horsepower loss and increases both power and fuel efficiency.
Forged aluminum pistons that are the same as those used on the YZF- R1 are lighter and more robust at harsh temperatures ensuring durability at higher rpm. The small muffler design is contemporary and helps center mass for ultra-responsive handling.
The Yamaha 2022 YZF-R3 World GP 60TH Anniversary Edition Sports Bike has an inverted fork with adjusted spring and damping settings which improves front-end rigidity, feedback, and control feel. For improved supersport style, the design adds a top clamp inspired by the YZR-M1. The solo-shock design concentrates mass even more and is calibrated to balance ride comfort and sporty performance, making it best for a wide range of applications from urban commuting to track days.
It also features a spring preload adjustment that compensates for people or cargo. An anti-lock braking system enhances the rider’s confidence. It eliminates wheel lock-ups in reduced-traction conditions while a 298mm floating-mount front disc brake and a 220mm rear disc provide superb stopping power. For increased suspension responsiveness and refined handling, stylish 10-spoke cast-aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight. For spirited riding, grippy Dunlop® radial tires offer improved traction and feedback.
The Yamaha 2022 YZF-R3 bike has a near 50/50 front/rear weight distribution for improved performance especially in dynamic canyon carving or racetrack riding settings, thanks to the engine placement and overall machine proportions.

The tail light unit and the headlights use Light Emitting Diode (LED) elements. LEDs not only come with a long life span with little power consumption, but they also give outstanding illumination for increased confidence and visibility at any time of day or night.
The rider can naturally hold the machine for confidence thanks to the low-profile fuel tank design and relatively small handlebar position, especially when tucking furiously under the windscreen on the racetrack. The small multi-function meter shows gear position, fuel capacity, real-time and average fuel economy along with water temperature, clock, and an all-new oil change trip meter in a clean, modern arrangement.
