Yamaha Has An Interesting Motorcycle Launch Lined Up For Diwali

Written By:

Yamaha has decided to launch the MT-03 in India, this Diwali. The Yamaha MT-03 is the naked version of the Yamaha R3 that was launched in India a while ago.

If sources are right, the Yamaha MT-03 will be priced around Rs 2.75 lakh in India. The MT-03 was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year, along with the MT-09, that is currently on sale in India.

Powering the Yamaha MT-03 is a 321cc, liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine that produces 41.4bhp and 29.6Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

In terms of styling, the Yamaha MT-03 has an upright riding position, even though it is based on the R3. The MT-03 features 140 section tyre at the rear and 110 section tyre at the front, disc brakes at both ends, telescopic front forks, and a monoshock at the rear.

Yamaha has taken a few measures to cut costs like choosing MRF tyres instead of Michelins or Pirellis, and also, has decided to ignore ABS for India.

When launched, the Yamaha MT-03 will compete against the KTM Duke 390, Benelli TNT300, and the upcoming Bajaj VS400.
