FIRST LOOK. THIS is the 2020 MT-03 from Yamaha.

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 factories 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’s 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 MT-03 isn’t dramatically different to the outgoing machine. It does get some new inverted 37mm front forks, and the monoshock at the rear’s been revised too, and comes with ability for riders to set preload and compression.
