Yamaha MT-03 Price, Specification, Features And Launch Date

Yamaha About:

Yamaha Corporation  [jamaha]) is a Japanese multinational corporation and conglomerate with a very wide range of products and services, predominantly musical instruments, electronics and power sports equipment.

It is one of the constituents of Nikkei 225 and is the world’s largest piano manufacturing company. The former motorcycle division became independent from the main company in 1955, forming Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd, although Yamaha Corporation is still the largest shareholder.

Yamaha MT-03 Preview

The MT-03 sits on 120/70 and 140/70 tires at the front and rear respectively both of which feature 17-inch alloy wheels. Braking will be provided by a 298mm front and 220mm rear disc brake which are aided by a dual-channel Anti-lock Braking System which is as yet unavailable on the India-spec YZF-R3.

The chunky fuel tank, sharp lines, and the naked frame is indicative of its street bike heritage as is the low seat height of 780mm which gives the rider a more upright riding position.

The bike is fitted with a single piece headlamp, tank-mounted shrouds with air intake pods, monoshock rear suspension and a telescopic fork at the front.

Yamaha MT-03

Estimated Price Rs. 3.2 lakh
Specifications Fuel-injected, parallel-twin, 321cc
Launch Date July 2018

The MT-03 is the naked version of the YZF-R3. It gets the same engine (of course, in a different state of tune) along with most of the same mechanicals. Thanks to the streetnaked look, it looks beefier and arguably more stylish than its faired sibling. This should be one of the most important of upcoming new Yamaha bikes at Auto Expo 2018.

Design and Style

The design of the bike has been seen in the patented images, pointing directly to a non-faired R3, whose rear is 100 percent the same as the race machine. The front gets a street fighter design, making the bike a muscular and intelligent choice when not willing for the R3. The bike comes with an FZ like the headlight and the front view, making them true cousins from the Yamaha street bike family.

Engine and Performance

The engine on the newcomer is the truly tested 321 cc, liquid cooled, fuel injected unit. It produces 41.4 BHP @ 10,750 rpm and 29.6 NM @ 9000 rpm. The twin cylinder machine is a gem to the Yamaha bikes, making it an economical choice among the riders. It will be mated to the same 6-speed gearbox, keeping the mechanical specifications exactly the same.

Brakes and Suspension

The MT-320 will get the same brakes as its race sibling. The front comes with a 298 mm disc brake whereas the rear has a 220 mm unit. ABS is not there, like its faired brother YZF-R3. The suspension is telescopic for the front and monoshock for the rear.

Expected Ex-showroom Price

MT-03 will be available in 3 shades: – Red Metallic, Black Metallic & Matt Silver, and the bike are expected to be available in a single non-ABS variant. The price is expected to stay close to INR 3,00,000 and MT-03 is expected to be launched in India in coming months.
