The Yamaha R3 is an incredibly sweet motorcycle, one that we’re very fond of. The MT-03 is essentially the same bike but with minimal bodywork and more comfortable, upright ergonomics. Under the MT-03’s minimal and angular bodywork resides the same high revving 42PS parallel twin engine that displaces 321cc. We do expect Yamaha to launch the MT-03 in India at some point but there is no clarity on when this will happen. Expect it to be priced Rs 20,000-30,000 cheaper than the R3. hopefully Yamaha won’t make the same glaring omission like the did with the R3 and offer this bike with ABS, at least as a choice

Minimal body work, but well executed and this bike should be quite the eye catcher

The Yamaha R3 is a stable, confidence inspiring and entertaining handler. We expect nothing less from the MT-03
