Yamaha launched the YZF-R3 in India last year which seems to be having a hard time lifiting up sales for the Japanese motorcycle brand. The naked version of the same, the MT-03 was launched in the international market and the company also hinted that the same will be headed to the Indian market soon. With the images appearing on the internet, it looks like finally Yamaha is getting serious about the MT-03 stories.
Our friends at Autoblogindia.com has recently published some spy shots of what seems to be the Yamaha MT-03 (India spec).The interesting part is the spied motorbike looks more of the Yamaha M-slaz type than the MT-03, on the contrary the bike rear tyre looks way bigger than the one of the M-slaz. The rear and front of the spied bike looks taken directly from Yamaha M-Slaz bike while rest of the body lines reminds of the MT-03. This also indicates that Yamaha might come up with a whole new bike bound to Indian market. We just hope the bike to have the 313cc, twin-cylinder engine from the YZF-R3. Fingers crossed! When launched Yamaha MT 03 price in India should touch around Rs 3 lakh. It will compete against bikes like 2017 KTM 390 Duke, Kawasaki Z250 and the Benelli TNT 300. The Yamaha MT 03 launch date is yet not confirmed but we hope the bike should make it to the production version by mid-2017.
