Yamaha Motor India has showcased several new motorcycles to their dealers that they might launch before the year ends. In terms of naked streetfighters, the brand showcased MT-O3, MT-07 and MT-09 whereas, in terms of fully faired motorcycles, there were R7, R1M, R1 and R3.

Then there are the Supersports fully faired motorcycles. The smallest one is the R3 which is powered by the same engine as the MT-03 and the R7 shares its engine with the MT-07. The R1M and R1 use a 998 cc, liquid-cooled, in-line four-cylinder engine that produces 197 bhp and 113 Nm. The difference between the R1 and the R1M is that the M version is more hardcore.
