Yamaha has revealed the 2020 model year MT-03, with the bike getting a refresh to its styling, suspension, and LCD dash.
According to the Japanese manufacturer, the 2-cylinder A2 middleweight now has the look and feel of its larger capacity MT cousins.
Key changes include a redesigned front-end featuring dual slant-eye position lights as well as an LED headlight positioned centrally beneath the front cowl assembly. Slim and light new LED flashers complete the lighting revisions.
Other styling mods at the front include a 14-litre wide-shouldered fuel tank cover and lightweight air scoops.
Tech upgrades, on the other hand, include new upside down forks featuring gold-coloured outer tubes and 37 mm inner tubes, while at the machine’s midway, a new 573 mm long asymmetrical swingarm reduces the variance in the bike’s angle with the road surface to improve controllability during braking, cornering and acceleration – and together with new shock settings plus a stiffer rear spring the bike’s overall handling performance is claimed to have been improved too.
For 2020, Yamaha’s designers have also opted for a negative LCD display with all data displayed in white on a black background.
The new MT-03 will be available in “Ice Fluo”, “Icon Blue”, and “Midnight Black”, and is expected to arrive at Yamaha dealerships starting in December 2019.
