Equipped with lightweight forged pistons and carburised con rods, this compact and lightweight engine produces plenty of mid to high rpm torque for enjoyable riding in a range of conditions.
For strong and predictable stopping power, together with plenty of feel, the MT-03 is equipped with a large diameter 298mm front disc brake featuring a floating 2-piston caliper, while the rear wheel is fitted with a 220mm disc. ABS is fitted as standard.
The MT-03’s dynamic new appearance is reinforced by the new LED flashers that perfectly complement the bike’s aggressive looks.
The MT-03’s ergonomic handlebar / seat / footrest layout is designed to give an upright riding position that makes this one of the most comfortable and versatile bikes in its class.
The MT-03’s serious big-bike specification is underlined with the addition of all-new upside-down front forks. Equipped with flex-resistant 37mm tubes and a cast aluminium upper triple clamp, the new front end reinforces the bike’s high-specification and delivers a confident and smooth ride during braking, acceleration and cornering.
To match the MT-03's radical new looks and class-leading specification, Yamaha has fitted state-of-the-art instrumentation. Featuring a stylish new LCD meter with data, this meter panel provides easy-to-absorb information.
With its aggressive new front light assembly as well as bold new air scoops and a re-sculpted fuel tank, the next generation MT-03 looks cooler than ever with its dual slant-eye position lights that emphasise its moody and aggressive big-bike looks. And for excellent night-time visibility there’s a powerful new centrally mounted LED headlight that burns a hole through the darkness to light up the road ahead.
Manufactured from 35mm steel tubing and featuring widely spaced top rails, the MT-03’s compact frame mounts the engine at four points to create a strong and lightweight structure.
