2023 Yamaha MT-03
THE DARK BECKONS
Your entry to the Dark Side. Built to thrill with a twin-cylinder engine, aggressive looks and serious street presence.
Features may include:
- Smooth & Easy To Ride Power Delivery
This 321cc liquid-cooled two-cylinder engine features lightweight forged pistons and carburized connecting rods, delivering easy to manage power in the low rpm range with strong high rpm power. The extremely light clutch feeling makes the MT-03 even more fun in the city, while its offset cylinders and advanced fuel injection system ensures smooth throttle response.
- Dual Position Lights with Singular LED Headlight
The dynamic MT-03 looks cool with its dual angled position lights that emphasize its aggressive big-bike looks. A single compact and powerful LED headlight burns a hole through the darkness to light up the road ahead.
- Potent Twin-Cylinder Powerplant
Yamaha’s 321cc liquid-cooled, inline two-cylinder engine delivers excellent power and performance throughout the rpm range. With a 180-degree crank design and integrated counterbalancer, the layout minimizes vibrations for a smooth, refined engine character.
- Smooth & Useable Power
With double overhead cams (DOHC) and four-valve cylinder heads, the MT-03 engine provides easy-to-manage power at low rpms with strong rpm power—ultimately delivering an exciting ride with a broad spread of power.
- Six-Speed Transmission
A smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox ensures the rider always has the right ratio, whether riding through tight city streets or on the open highway.
- Inverted KYB® Front Fork
The MT-03 features an inverted KYB® fork with optimized spring and damping settings, delivering more solid handling when compared to motorcycles using conventional front forks.
- Monocross Rear Shock
The seven-step preload adjustable single-shock design is tuned to strike a balance between ride comfort and sporty performance with capability across a wide range of uses, from urban commuting to extended rides into the twisty canyons.
- Long Swingarm
The MT-03 is equipped with a 22.6-inch long asymmetrical swingarm that provides a planted ride during braking, cornering and acceleration.
- Stylish LED Turn Signals
Light-Emitting Diode (LED) elements are used for both the front and rear turn signals. Not only do LEDs offer long life with minimal power draw, they provide brilliant illumination for confidence and visibility, during the day or night. The MT-03’s dynamic appearance is reinforced by the LED signals that perfectly complement the bike’s aggressive looks.
- Dynamic Mass Forward Design
Yamaha’s Hyper Naked bikes are instantly recognizable thanks to their aggressive and powerful design. A sculpted fuel tank cover is designed to fit snugly with the rider while the lightweight air scoops enhance the look and feel of the mass-forward body design and highlight the dynamic MT family look.
- Ergonomic Riding Position
With its compact body and low 30.7-inch seat height, the MT-03 is a joy to ride whether you’re escaping traffic or having a blast out on the open road. Behind the aggressive bodywork, a specially sculpted knee area and fuel tank cover work with the high-mounted handlebars to provide an agile and ergonomic riding position.
- Digital LCD Instrumentation
To match the MT-03 Hyper Naked’s radical looks, Yamaha has fitted a stylish LCD meter that provides easy-to-absorb information.
