Yamaha FZ-03



Following the recent unveiling of the MT-25 in Indonesia, introduction of the larger MT-320/FZ-03 is expected shortly.

The only official confirmation we have of the new naked model are patent filings that surfaced a few weeks ago.Regardless Yamaha's strategy for the naked MT/FZ series is following the same trajectory as the R25 and R3 did.

Yamaha is in for a tough fight in the budding light weight naked category. Honda has had their CB300F on the market for almost a year now, Kawasaki will be adding the Z300 alongside the Ninjette and even KTM has skin in the game with their new to America this summer Duke 390.

Look for the MT-320/FZ-03 to make its debut later this year at EICMA and AIMExpo.

They've been sold in Asia already for a while and there is a thriving aftermarket for accessories already established.

See my post from yesterday...

I like it, considering switching over the wife's bike to that when it drops in the US... but I don't understand why they felt the need to make the front headlight look near identical to the Honda CB300F.

so this will be lighter and faster than R3 because fairings are dropped?

Without the fairings it should definitely weigh less, which should make it a bit quicker from stoplights and in accelerating, but it won't be as aerodynamic without the fairings so the top speed will suffer, so not faster.

This is assuming they keep the front and rear sprocket sizes the same as the R3...

Being quicker in those two areas mentioned is BIG, considering where most will be riding these, those changes result in big value added
