With the new YZF-R3, Yamaha has taken the very good basis of the first generation and successfully developed it further. It now appears not only visually more mature, but also noticeably more competent at high speeds. When you ride the R3 at the limit, you quickly feel why Yamaha has set up its own Cup on it, as even the standard model gives a safe feeling at high speed. Nevertheless, there is room for improvement, especially in everyday use, when the rough response at low revs and the poor feedback from the brake lever lead to some moments of frustration during the ride.
