Rumour: Yamaha R3 & MT-03 bookings open unofficially

Rumours suggest that Yamaha might launch the R3 and MT-03 in India in a couple of months from now.

Earlier this month, Yamaha showcased its range of big bikes in India. On display were models like the Yamaha R3, R7, R1M, MT-03, MT-07 and MT-09. This led to speculations that some of these might be launched in the market soon, especially those at the lower end of the price range.

Now, according to a media report, some dealerships have started accepting bookings for the Yamaha R3 and MT-03. The dealers are charging Rs 5,000-20,000 and it said that the bikes are likely to be launched in the next two months.

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.
