Yamaha made official the production of the MT-03 model in 2016.
In June, Yamaha announced it will build the MT-25 for the Indonesian market. Now we receive confirmation that the Japanese motorcycle giant will build the MT-03. The bike will most likely be a R3 without fairings and it will probably be named the FZ-03 for the US market. At this point there is no news that the new model will be available for the US market.
The 2016 Yamaha MT-03 has a 321 cc parallel-Twin engine capable of 41 HP and 30 Nm of torque. The naked bike features a single headlight and follows the design pattern of the MT family. It is 4 kilograms lighter than the R3 model. The Japanese engineers fitted a wider handlebar to offer a more comfortable upright seating position. The bike has three colour schemes for customers to choose from: matt silver, black metallic and red metallic.
