 India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. has confirmed that they will launch the MT-03, according to a report by the Economic Times. The MT-03, unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan is the naked street-fighter version of the Yamaha R3 that was recently launched in India. Expect the MT-03 to be locally assembled at either of India Yamaha Motor’s two manufacturing facilities at Faridabad (Haryana) and Surajpur (Uttar Pradesh).

The MT-03  features a single pod headlamp as opposed to the twin headlamps on the R3 and a single piece wide handle-bar replaces the clip on handle-bar from the R3. Other features include a fuel tank mounted air intake, a digital analogue instrument console and dual channel ABS brakes. An upright riding stance is provided by the new styling for comfortable urban riding.

The MT-03 borrows its engine from its sibling, the Yamaha R3. The said engine is a 321 cc, four stroke liquid cooled DOHC parallel twin engine producing 41 hp of peak power at 10,750 rpm and a peak torque of 30 Nm at 9,000 rpm. Transmission duties will be taken care of by a 6 speed transmission. While a majority of the aspects remain the same, expect the MT-03 to have a meager power to weight advantage. 165 kg is what the bike weighs sans the fairing.

The MT-03 once launched will lock horns with the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Benelli TNT300 and the BMW G310 R. We expect the MT-03 to priced Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 30,000 lower than the R3 that retails at a price of Rs. 3.25 lakh, Ex-Showroom (Delhi).
