Yamaha revealed the next-generation model of MT-03 back in October 2019. Unfortunately, as of now, the brand has not officially announced anything regarding the launch of the MT-03 2021 in the Nepalese markets. As per the latest auto details available, the new Yamaha MT-03 motorcycle is expected to be launched in Nepal by the end of 2021. The new Yamaha MT-03 is basically the naked version of the Yamaha YZF-R3 and the styling of the Yamaha MT-03 is exactly similar to the Yamaha MT-25.
The 2021 model of the Yamaha MT-03 comes with a new LED headlamp setup that includes LED turn indicators, an updated LCD display and new fuel tank extensions. The fully-digital LCD instrument cluster is new addition on the updated MT-03. The MT-03 also comes with the equipped 37mm Upside Down (USD) telescopic forks at the front while the rear features a monoshock unit. Braking duties are covered by a 298mm disc up front and a 220mm disc at the rear, with dual-channel ABS as a standard unit. The Yamaha MT-03 will be available in two colours – race blu and midnight black.
The bike is powered by 321cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, twin-cylinder engine producing a maximum power of 42HP @ 10,750 rpm and a peak torque of 29.6Nm @ 9,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission and weighs just 168kgs. The bike is equipped with a new swingarm as well.
