Yamaha is set to make a big entry into the Indian market with the launch of the highly anticipated YZF-R3 and MT-03 motorcycles on 15 December. While the debut of these two Japanese bikes has already created quite a buzz, let’s take a closer look at what they have to offer for potential buyers.
Both the Yamaha YZF-R3 and MT-03 share a common platform but boast distinct design elements. Under the hood, they are powered by a robust 321cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that delivers an impressive 42bhp and 29.6Nm of torque. This power is efficiently managed by a smooth six-speed gearbox, ensuring an exhilarating ride.
When it comes to features, both bikes showcase LED illumination and an informative LCD display. From essentials like speedometer, odometer, and fuel level readout to more advanced features like gear position indicator and trip meter, the display offers a range of useful information to enhance the riding experience. However, it is worth noting that Bluetooth connectivity is not available for either model.
The Yamaha MT-03 and YZF-R3 share similar hardware components such as USD front forks and a monoshock suspension. Braking duties are handled by a single front and rear disc, equipped with dual-channel ABS for maximum safety. These high-performance components are complemented by 17-inch wheels wrapped in road-biased tires, ensuring a thrilling journey on any terrain.
While the YZF-R3 boasts an elegant full-faired body with a striking split LED headlight and a sporty duct in between, the MT-03 exhibits a raw and aggressive naked design. Its unique single-pod headlight, featuring a centrally mounted projector LED flanked by Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), adds to its charismatic appeal. The beefy fuel tank further enhances its muscular appearance.
Excitingly, Yamaha plans to make both the YZF-R3 and MT-03 available at select Blue Square dealerships. Once launched, these motorcycles will go head-to-head with their competitors, offering riders an exceptional blend of performance, style, and excitement. So mark your calendars for 15 December and get ready to experience the thrill of Yamaha’s latest offerings.
