Yamaha is set to introduce two new bikes, the R3 and MT-03, in India on December 15, with deliveries slated to commence by the month-end. The company’s plans to reintroduce the R3 and unveil the MT-03 have been in the works for a while. According to ‘Auto Car India,’ the pricing details for these models will be unveiled on December 15, 2023. Post-launch, the bikes will hit the roads in over 100 cities nationwide. However, these models will be exclusively available at select Blue Square dealerships.

Performance and Build

The YZF-R3, a fully faired bike previously sold during the BS4 era, will make its return to the Indian market. Meanwhile, the naked version, MT-03, marks its debut in India. Both models will share a 321cc parallel-twin engine, delivering 42hp and 29.5Nm torque, mounted on a diamond-type frame. Unlike the R3’s previous version, both bikes will feature an upside-down fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear.

Pricing and Availability

Expectedly, the initial availability of these bikes will be as completely built units (CBU), possibly impacting their price point. As a result, they might be priced slightly higher than the KTM 390 Duke (Rs 3.11 lakh) and RC 390 (Rs 3.18 lakh), but could be more affordable compared to the Kawasaki Ninja 400 (Rs 5.24 lakh). The company’s strategy may position these bikes as a niche offering with a balance between performance and price, aiming to capture a specific market segment.
