Three years after Europe, the US market will finally welcome Yamaha’s entry-level naked bike, the 2020 Yamaha MT-03. This smaller-displacement model completes the tuning fork company’s “Masters of Torque” lineup, equipped with the same 321cc parallel twin used in the YZF-R3 supersport model. The MT-03 takes after its larger siblings with taller handlebars, bar-mounted mirrors, and LED lighting, as well as unique bodywork that includes a wide-shouldered fuel tank with lightweight air scoops. This is a hyper naked in a compact package.
