Yamaha MT-03 320 2016

Menus

The roadster has evolved in many ways. Basic in its early days, it has gradually spread to trends of all kinds: streamlined (XJ6 Diversion, Bandit 1250 S) or even road (XJ6 Diversion F, Z 1000 SX, GSX-S 1000 F), streetfighter (1290 Superduke, S 1000 R, MT-10, Tuono 1100, etc …), motorcycle school (XJ6, CB 500 F, ER-6n), player (MT-07, 800 Scrambler), muscular and atypical (MT-09, Street Triple , 690 Duke) up to cross-over (Tracer, S 1000 XR).

As we can see, Yamaha is not the last to offer a wide range of arrangements. There was just a missing link between the small MT-125 and the beginning of the mid-range. And although the 300 category is not the most strategic for the most manufacturers (in our country) nor the most requested, it is enriched each year with new models. The MT-03, or MT-320, completes the Masters of Torque clan and joins a club in the making of the Z 300, Benelli BN 302, BMW G 310 R and KTM 390 Duke.

STOP! The MT-03 is the roadster-supermot with the mono of the XTs, released in the mid-2000s after a big reception of the eponymous concept-bike. There is not a mistake somewhere ?!?
No. Everything is fine. In the current MT range, the figure refers to the displacement. However, there is a 320 that revolves around its name to avoid confusion with the old roadster. Let the papers fight each other and see who is behind the lighthouse.

Under the dressing, there are people that we know. Let’s examine. Tubular steel frame with 35mm sections, engine as structural member of the chassis, 298mm front brake disc with dual piston caliper, 220mm rear disc, 41mm fork, tires not too wide (and favoring reactivity) of 110 and 140 mm … It is exactly the technical sheet of the sporty R3. This will flatter the owner. A roadster derived from a sports car, it always has its small effect. Yamaha therefore screwed up its mid-displacement YZF naked to create the MT-03. A more upright driving position, less plastic, a suit with a touch of aggressiveness, and we roll. But with what as power and as a mill ?

With a twin cylinder. The most symbiotic engine with the motorcycle. This 321 cm3 block contains the current and most widely used solutions. 4 valves per cylinder, injection, double ACT, forged pistons, case-hardened connecting rods and super-square ribs: technology that will soon be forgotten when the bi is in operation. Because once out for a walk with friends, will the MT-03 be able to tease the club’s friends? Yes, there is plenty to do. The maximum power, reached above 10,000 rpm, is displayed at 42 horsepower. A small 3 mkg is in addition. Values ​​located between the Kawa and the KTM, and above all, not so far from the CB 500. 6 horses separate them, but the Yamaha roadster weighs 24 kilos less. At the time of the fight, it can play teasing.

With the MT-03, the A2 licenses have an additional choice to discover the consistency of an average displacement. No need for clamping – the bike being below the legal threshold, ABS as standard, correct weight overall but plump compared to the 390 Duke, saddle height accessible with 780 mm, sporty touch with the dashed dashboard. also to the R3 and the mean little air of the MT family. The main obstacle for this MT-03 320 will be, as for all its friends, its proximity to pricing with more rewarding machines. For 1,500 euros more, the MT-07 offers a formidable price / pleasure / performance ratio and a very different resale rating..


****** Update May 2019:

On May 9, 2019, Yamaha launched a recall campaign of its YZF-R3 and MT-03 for a problem with the fragile front brake lever..

Nature of the problem:

Under certain circumstances, the front brake lever may break during use due to porosity formed by unsaturated material during the low temperature non-pressure molding process. Further investigation revealed that these suspicious levers should have been identified during the testing process and discarded but they accidentally ended up on the production line due to an incorrect cycle..
During normal use, the brake lever cannot break.

To remedy this, Yamaha is initiating a recall campaign which consists of checking the production marking of the front brake lever and replacing the front brake lever if necessary..

In total, 115 machines are concerned for the French market.

Machines concerned:

· MT-03 (B9A7) with serial numbers between RH125 0010041 and RH125 0010640.

· YZF-R3 (B7P1) with serial numbers between RH12D 0002001 and RH12D 0002315.

Yamaha specifies that customers who own these machines have been notified by registered mail and must make an appointment as soon as possible with their Yamaha dealer in order to have this intervention carried out free of charge..


***** Update December 2018:

Yamaha recalled its YZF-R3 and MT-03 for two faults: one on the radiator hoses side, the other on the selector.

Here are the details of these two recalls:

1 / Faulty radiator hose

Due to non-conforming material properties as a result of an improper curing (vulcanization) process, a crack may appear on a radiator hose and, in extreme cases, coolant may leak. Yamaha is therefore initiating a recall campaign which consists of replacing the radiator hose (s)..

Customers who own these machines have been notified by registered mail and must make an appointment as soon as possible with their Yamaha dealer in order to have this intervention carried out free of charge..

Machines concerned:
• YZF-R3 model 2017 (BR51) with serial numbers between RH121 0001001 and RH121 0003280.
• YZF-R3 2015–2016 models (B023 / B02B) with serial numbers between RH071 0001001 and RH071 0006680.
• MT03 model 2018 (B9A1) whose serial numbers are between RH125 0001001 and RH125 0005280.
• MT03 model 2016 (B082) whose serial numbers are between RH07K 0001001 and RH07K 0006640.

In total, 1101 machines concerned for the French market.

2 / Defective selector torsion spring

Due to insufficient shot peening process of the torsion spring, the torsion spring has insufficient strength. Therefore on some machines it may be difficult to change the gearbox ratio. In extreme cases, the torsion spring can break and it will therefore be impossible to change the gearbox ratio. Yamaha is therefore initiating a recall campaign which consists of replacing the torsion spring..

Customers who own these machines have been notified by registered mail and must make an appointment as soon as possible with their Yamaha dealer in order to have this intervention carried out free of charge..

Machines concerned:

• YZF-R3 2015–2016 (B023 / B02B) with serial numbers between RH071 0001001 and RH071 0006000.
• MT03 model 2016 (B082) whose serial numbers are between RH07K 0001001 and RH07K 0004520.

That is, a total of 731 machines concerned for the French market.
