Yamaha’s just unveiled its new MT-03 for 2020 to some markets, and here’s (almost) everything you need to know about the new A2 licence machine. Based around the Japanese factory’s YZF-R3, the new MT shares the same motor and frame as its sportier sibling, but there are a few key differences, including its aggressive streetfighter styling to help the MT stand apart.
There’re a few subtle styling tweaks, including a new front LED headlight, a new LCD dash, and a larger, beefier 14-litre fuel tank, but technically speaking, the MT03 isn’t dramatically different to the outgoing machine. It does get some new inverted 37mm front forks, the monoshock at the rear been revised, and it comes with the ability for riders to set preload and compression. Although there’s been no official information released in the UK just yet, our Italian cousins have confirmed that the new MT-03 will be available in Yamaha dealers from December 2019 at a price of €5,740 plus OTR charges (which works out at £5,105)
