The MT-03 is powered by the 321cc, 4-stroke, Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valves engine which produces 41.42 BHP and 29.5 NM of torque mated to the 6 Speed Gearbox.
The bike has a telescopic upside-down fork suspension at front, and swingarm at the rear. It rides on 110/70 17-inch wheels at front, and 140/70 17-inch wheels at the rear with both the wheels equipped with disc brakes, and it features dual-channel ABS. It has a LED Projector headlamps, and LED taillamps, and digital cluster with bluetooth connectivity.
In the market, the KTM Duke 390 emerges as the MT-03’s closest competitor in terms of competition. While there are currently no other twin-cylinder street naked bikes in this segment in India, the landscape may evolve in the future with the possibility of Aprilla developing a naked sibling to the recently launched RS 457.
