Hmmm I wonder if the next model year of the R3 is going to get those nice USD forks.

The girl did say "the launch of R25 and R3". Hopefully it could be modded to fit a ninjette. I'd love to install those!

Kawi should step up the game. Even the new ninja 400 is using the conventional forks.

Love USD forks. Seems to me like even the low end ones, even with their simple damping innards, feel so much better than the conventional heavy side down forks. Not sure why. Unsprung weight maybe? Just stiffer and less of a flexi-flyer?

It's a better starting point for upgrades too.

Nice job Yamaha.

New R3 -

https://www.cycleworld.com/yamaha-yz...or-2019#page-6

USD forks and updated bodywork - in line with the other R-bikes. Much better looking and reportedly gained a few MPH on top end with better aero. Reshaped tank as well.
