With the Yamaha MT-125 in the market as version of the Yamaha YZF-R125 naked was logical to think that Yamaha would do the same with the Yamaha YZF-R3. Just occur in Japan the Yamaha MT-03, with all the ingredients to storm A2 licence. In the land of the rising sun will be available on October 10 and at the moment is not confirmed for Europe, but almost certain is arrival at the previous continent step by 2015 EICMA. The price should be below the 5,000 euros.
The Yamaha MT-03 derives directly from the sport, with a more upright due to their different handlebar driving position and some extra more helpful detail for the passenger. Both the diamond-like chassis and 321 cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, 42 HP at 10,750 rpm and 30 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm remain intact. Also shared brakes (of 298 mm and 220 mm back) and its weight in running order falls to the 165 kilos, 4 fewer than the R3.
As we say a good additive for meat A2 in Europe and a top range model for the countries of Southeast Asia in the form of Yamaha MT-25. Very suitable as a motorbike school.
Yamaha is preparing the launch of the new MT-03, naked version of the small sport R3, newcomer. Expected to be presented officially in the coming months, the new youngest MT family had its first images made public this week.

As well as in the larger sisters MT-09 and MT-07, the new MT-03 is distinguished by style invoked, with sharp edges and headlight fairings well clipped. Mirrors, top lever and on two levels are similar to those of R3 (below), but the MT-03 differs by handlebars higher and open, providing a more relaxed riding position to the city. Also the bubble windshield is a lot smaller in the case of naked, acting more like an air deflector.
