The 440 cc air/oil-cooled single-cylinder engine isn’t the fastest or most performance-focused model available. A 3.5-inch color TFT display, Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, and full LED illumination are among its respectable feature sets.

Yamaha motorcycles launched in 2023

The Yamaha YZF R3 and MT-03 bikes, which were recently launched in India, are the last two models on our list of top motorcycles launched in 2023. With the introduction of BS6 emission standards, the Yamaha R3 was phased out in India, while the MT-03 is an entirely new bike. A 321 cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine powers both variants, and both have respectable performance. Since these are imported to India from Indonesia as CBUs, both motorcycles have very less features and are extremely expensive.
