New 2020 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition YZF-R3

Yamaha Combines R World Racing DNA with Legendary MotoGP Team Spirit

MARIETTA, Ga. – June 4, 2019 – Built from the racing DNA of Yamaha’s R World Supersport motorcycle pedigree, the YZF-R3’s advanced twin-cylinder engine, nimble handling, and R-series design make it the top choice for street and track riders seeking Lightweight Supersport performance. Beginning in July, the pure racing spirit of Yamaha’s legendary MotoGP team makes its way to the new 2020 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition YZF-R3 Supersport motorcycle, further expanding the racing DNA connection with a special livery.

This special edition YZF-R3 calls to its racing pedigree with an edgy, aggressive look that reflects the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP YZR-M1’s styling, made famous by MotoGP superstars Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales.

A genuine Supersport bike, the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition YZF-R3 has the performance to match the aggressive styling it displays. The 321cc liquid-cooled eight-valve fuel injected engine delivers smooth-running and quick-revving power. Yamaha’s all-aluminum DiASil cylinder combined with forged aluminum pistons ensures excellent heat dissipation with an innovative offset design that improves power and fuel efficiency.

The YZF-R3’s lightweight steel frame delivers the perfect balance of rigidity and weight. The long, asymmetrical swingarm design maximizes the efficient transmission of engine power to the rear wheel, while a preload-adjustable KYB rear shock with Monocross optimizes mass centralization. Combined with a KYB inverted front fork, a 30.7-inch (780mm) seat height, and approximately 50/50 front-rear weight distribution, the YZF-R3 provides nimble handling around town and on the race track.

The new 2020 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition YZF-R3 is the ultimate homage to the YZR-M1 MotoGP look and will be available at authorized Yamaha dealers beginning in July for an MSRP of $5,599.

R-Series body styling with Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP livery

321cc, inline two-cylinder engine

Compact and lightweight chassis

Inverted front fork with optimized spring and damping settings

Digital LCD multi-function meter with a clean, modern layout

Yamaha Introduces 2020 Star Venture Transcontinental Tourer

Riders will Journey Further with Technology, Convenience, Comfort and V-Twin Power

MARIETTA, Ga. – June 4, 2019 – Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, today introduced the 2020 Star Venture, a luxurious, technologically advanced transcontinental touring motorcycle that offers riders the opportunity to journey further than ever before. The Star Venture incorporates convenient features like Sure-Park forward and reverse parking assist, dual-zone audio capability, drive mode settings that adjust throttle response, traction control, an adjustable rider backrest, heated handlebar grips, heated rider and passenger seats and backrests, a multi-function infotainment system and more. Combined with Yamaha’s renowned quality, performance, and reliability, the Star Venture represents the very top of the luxury motorcycle touring segment.

Developed specifically for the needs of long-distance touring, the Star Venture boasts a massive and torque-rich 113 cubic inch (1854cc) air-cooled V-twin engine to deliver a smooth and comfortable ride on long days in the saddle. A six-speed transmission makes the most of the huge low-end torque, from brisk acceleration in lower gears to relaxed highway cruising.

Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T), a ride-by-wire throttle control system, converts the rider’s grip input into calculated throttle control providing precise and refined responsiveness. Yamaha D-Mode allows the rider to choose from two different throttle response settings (an ultra-smooth touring mode, and a sport mode for sharper response), while the traction control system helps prevent wheel spin while accelerating. A finely-tuned cruise control system also comes standard on the Star Venture, assisting with reduced rider fatigue and improved fuel economy.

As the most technologically advanced luxury touring motorcycle in history, the Star Venture features Yamaha’s Sure-Park System that provides forward and reverse drive modes which simplify potentially tricky parking situations, even on rough or poor-traction surfaces. The unique infotainment system provides direct access to vehicle controls, data, and a range of audio sources and wireless Bluetooth communications through a 7-inch, full-color LCD touchscreen that incorporates handlebar controls and voice command accessibility.

The Star Venture’s light and responsive feel results from an advanced hybrid chassis that creates straight-line stability balanced with agile handling, and suspension that provides ideal bump absorption while retaining performance at higher speeds on curvy roads.

Unbeatable braking confidence is achieved through Yamaha’s Unified Braking System, which dynamically adjusts front and rear brake force balance in real time to ensure linear braking feel and power, combined with a refined antilock braking system (ABS) that prevents wheel lock-ups when dealing with reduced-traction road conditions.

Airflow and temperature control has been carefully considered to optimize rider comfort. A stylish full-coverage fairing and electronically adjustable windscreen provide ample wind protection, while external visors at the middle of the fairing and lower vents located near the floorboards can be adjusted to direct air towards or away from riders depending on conditions. Heated contact points in the handlebar grips, seats, and backrests all come as standard equipment to keep riders and passengers warm when the temperature drops.

Packing for long journeys on the Star Venture is no problem thanks to side cases, a top case, and faring storage compartments that provide a combined total of 37.3 gallons of storage volume. Yamaha’s Smart Key system with remote key fob allows for easy access to the luggage system and fuel tank cap, provides for simplified starting, and offers an “answer-back” function for locating the motorcycle in a crowded parking area. All-LED lighting looks sharp and keeps the road bright at night, and a class-leading 6.6-gallon fuel tank means plenty of time between fuel stops.

Transcontinental (TC) Option Package

In addition to LED fog lights, a range of infotainment upgrades comes with the Star Venture Transcontinental Option Package. GPS navigation with points-of-interest and route logging helps to simplify the planning, sharing, and uploading of ride routes from a home computer. A CB radio system can link riders to others on the road, while SiriusXM and SiriusXM Travel Link provides satellite music, weather, and traffic information. An extra pair of high-output passenger speakers and Yamaha’s exclusive Dual Zone audio control allows rider and passenger to select different audio sources, hold private phones calls and more with an accessory headset and mic. Add it all up, and the TC Option Package offers one of the most advanced infotainment systems ever featured on a motorcycle.

The 2020 Yamaha Star Venture will be available in Granite Gray and a new Impact Blue color scheme for an MSRP of $24,999 for base models and $26,999 for models equipped with the Transcontinental Option Package. All models and colors will begin arriving at authorized Yamaha dealerships beginning in November.

Journey Further

Yamaha Star transcontinental tourers combine powerful and emotional fuel-injected V-Twin performance, state-of-the-art infotainment technology, the ultimate in rider/passenger comfort, and heart-pounding style – all designed to help riders journey further than ever before.
