NEW YAMAHA MT-03 2020: Highlights
According to New Model Yamaha, the new model was inspired by the fastest land animal, the cheetah, which has a long tail, small head and flexible spine, ensuring lightness, aerodynamics and stability throughout the riding experience.
The new MT-03 is able to impress: by its wide fairing, it seems to be larger than it is. It’s actually a naked small low-cylinder of the premium category, very powerful, with innovative design and a lot of lightness when it comes to driving around.
Some experts have piloted the new MT-03 and have concluded that it has the potential to take paved roads because its excellent torque makes it an excellent choice for urban use, where responsiveness is generally more important than final speed.
In addition, it was found that the new MT-03, weighing only 166kg, becomes easy to maneuver. Such lightness also makes a lot of difference when the rider speeds up or makes curves.

There is no way to complain about the consumption of MT-03.
Its 16bit ERCU manages the admission system. This, in turn, together with the electronic injection system, makes the mixture of fuel and air arrive quickly to the combustion chamber, which results in a very balanced consumption and, consequently, more economy for the pilot.
