The long awaited MT-03 marks the latest addition to the hugely successful MT family. It bridges the gap between the single-cylinder MT-125 and parallel-twin MT-07 by offering riders a step-up bike that’s A2 compliant. Yamaha has used the YZF-R3 as the donor bike, given it a naked makeover and tweaked the ergonomics. Everything else remains the same, it uses the same 321cc parallel-twin motor with 42bhp and 22ftlbs torque on tap. The chassis, wheels and suspension all remain the same. The MT-03 is priced at £4,499.
We'll be riding the bike tomorrow so check back for the first ride report.
