Yamaha Motor Australia press release:

Yamaha Motor Australia is excited to announce the Australian release of its 2020 MT-03 hyper naked, now available in a choice of three colours; Ice Fluo, Icon Blue and Tech Black. Ride away pricing is $7299 inc GST.

Aggressive styling and technical upgrades headline MY2020 Yamaha’s 2020 MT-03 hyper naked which has been dubbed Dark Lightning. The new lines flow seamlessly across the motorcycle from headlight to taillight, delivering a large-bike feel in a confidence-inspiring entry-level package.

The eye-catching styling of the 2020 MT-03 features dual-eye position lights that convey a predatory look. A single, powerful LED headlight is positioned inconspicuously beneath the front cowl, with slim integrated LED flashers on either side.

Mass-forward body styling features a wide-shouldered fuel tank cover and lightweight air scoops that flow into a tightly-packed appearance around the engine area, reinforcing the strong MT family links.

Topping off the eye-catching styling upgrades is a new-look state-of-the-art dashboard featuring an LCD dash with an attractive multi-function design and layout.

Technical advancements that will keep the MT-03 at the
head of the entry-level pack have also been incorporated, including sportsbike-style upside-down forks delivering enhanced handling performance during braking, acceleration, and cornering. A the rear, the Monoshock suspension has also been upgraded with revised pre-load and damping settings, along with a stiļ¬€er spring. The technical layout of the proven 321cc two-cylinder engine has been retained.

Despite the major technical and styling upgrades for 2020, ride away pricing has remained unchanged from MY2019, meaning the MT-03 represents even more unbeatable value for money.
