The Yamaha RD300 Concept by Autologue Design is yet another digital marvel for Indian car fans. The retro-modern machine shown here features the body of an RD350 and uses pieces from the popular Yamaha YZF-R3 motorcycle. The motorcycle is designed with the same big frame and golden USD front forks to give it a muscular appearance.

To add a titanium Akrapovic exhaust and minimal belly protection to the cafe racer style, the Yamaha R3’s whole fairing was removed. The RD350 provided the inspiration for the fuel tank, side panels, and headlight. Autologue has yet to say whether or not a production version of the game will be released.
The motorcycle’s front and rear tyres, as seen in the projected image, are track-friendly, while spoke wheels give retro charm. The back fender is self-contained, while the front end is equipped with dual disc brakes. The seat features a two-step design, and the rear light is inspired by the 350cc RD model.
For the Indian market, the Yamaha RD350 had a 30.5BHP engine, whereas the international version had a 39BHP engine. The Yamaha R3 is a worthy successor to the RD350, which was one of the few twin-cylinder motorcycles available at the time.

Yamaha has also revised the R3 in a few markets, although India will have to wait until 2022 to see the model. In compared to the current-generation Indian R3, the new R3 features USD front forks, LED headlamps, an all-new digital console, and much more.
The R3 is powered by a 321cc twin-cylinder engine with a maximum output of 42 horsepower and peak torque of 29.6 Nm. The BS4-compliant R3 model was available in India with an ex-showroom price of INR 3.52 lakhs before being withdrawn, while the all-new variant is slated to appear in India with a price tag of roughly INR 3.70 lakhs (ex-showroom).
