Yamaha MT-03 Review

26 Aug, 2016 11:56 PM


When the taste of naked street sport bikes comes to a rider's tongue, machine like the Yamaha MT-03/MT-320 would be the first name striking to his mind. No doubt the new arrival has many bits to be tested and trusted, the heart under the fuel tank comes from a very prestigious family. The R3's engine has been used for the bike, with its body components and styling nearly matching the MT-25, making it a true naked brother of the R3 as MT-25 was for R25.

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 headlight and front view, making them true cousins from the Yamaha street bike family.

Engine and Performance

The engine on the new comer 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 is 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.
