About MT-03

The Yamaha MT-03 is the streetfighter version of YZF-R3 supersports motorcycle and is the fourth model in the MT range. A compact and easy to use motorcycle, the MT-03 will lock horns with the likes of the Kawasaki Z250, Benelli TNT 300 and the KTM Duke 390.
The headlamp, sculpted fuel tank and the air intakes of the MT-25 have been designed along the lines of bigger MT motorcycles. The exposed parallel-twin engine and the semi-trellis steel frame emphasise the motorcycle’s hooligan character. A majority of its components from the rear section, suspension, brakes and the exhaust have been shared with the R3.
The MT-03 is powered by the same 321cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine from its fully-faired counterpart. Delivering 35bhp and 22Nm of torque, the engine is mated to a six-speed transmission. At 168 kilograms (wet), the MT-03 is just one kilogram lighter than the R3, which means that both the siblings should be on par in terms of performance, though better aerodynamics should help R3 achieve a higher top speed.
The Yamaha MT-03 will be available in two colours – race blu and midnight black. We can expect it to retail in the Rs 2.8 lakh to Rs 3.0 lakh price bracket.
