Yamaha R3, MT-03 to be launched on December 15

The Yamaha MT-03 will rival the KTM Duke 390, while the R3 take on the KTM RC 390.

According to a media report, Yamaha is all set to launch the R3 and MT-03 in India on December 15, 2023. The bikes will be sold through select Blue Square dealerships across 100 cities. 

The Yamaha R3 is a fully-faired bike that will be positioned above the YZF R15. It is powered by a 321cc, liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine that makes 42 BHP and 29.5 Nm.

The MT-03 is the naked version of the R3. It uses the same 321cc engine and is expected to compete with the KTM Duke 390. The R3, on the other hand, will rival the KTM RC 390. Both bikes will be imported via the CBU route.

Yamaha had showcased its new range of big bikes in India in April this year. Apart from the R3 and MT-03, the line-up included the R7, R1M, MT-07 and MT-09.
