We break down the new MT-03 via detailed images

Yamaha has taken the motorcycling world by surprise with the recent introduction of a new MT-03. Since this bike is expected to make its way to India, we delve into the details and decipher it via detailed images.

The styling of the MT-03 has been reworked to more closely resemble its larger MT siblings. The new headlight unit and bodywork give the updated 03 a sharper, more aggressive design that is more befitting of the MT lineup’s 'Dark Side of Japan' tagline. 

The previous version’s single headlight unit has been replaced with a new design that features two position lamps and a single LED headlight. This gives the new MT a mean frown that is sure to turn heads at traffic lights.

Lighting at the rear looks crisp too, with a smart-looking tail lamp coupled with new LED turn indicators.

Also new on the 2020 MT-03 is a fully digital LCD instrument cluster, replacing the digi-analogue unit seen on its predecessor.

The 37mm upside-down front fork is provided by KYB, and is all new on the 2020 bike. The previous version featured a 41mm conventional telescopic fork. Suspension at the rear is new as well, in the form of a seven-step preload-adjustable monoshock.

While the tank itself is unchanged, the extensions, side panels and belly cowl have been redesigned, refreshing the overall appearance of the MT-03.

The engine is carried over from the R3, which means a 321cc parallel-twin motor paired with a 6-speed gearbox. We expect the MT-03 to get the same output as the R3, which currently stands at 42PS and 29.6Nm. However, we are not yet sure whether this bike meets Euro5/BS6 emission norms. There is a possibility that the output could change after the engine has been reworked to meet these norms.

The braking setup on the MT-03 is identical to that deployed on the R3, with a 298mm disc up front and a 220mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS is standard.

Colour options for the new MT-03 are Ice Fluo (the white bike seen in the first image), Icon Blue (the blue bike in the image above) and Raven Black (the black bike in the image below).

The MT-03 is expected to make its way to India sometime next year and compete against the likes of the KTM 390 Duke, BMW G 310 R and Honda CB 300R.
