Yamaha MT-03 650August 8, 2018
I won’t say I hated this bike, but I never enjoyed riding it. Although I kept it for a little over a year I never could get on with it.
It looked the part. But that was all.
If I’d done some online research before I bought this bike perhaps I would’ve learnt that the Yamaha MT-03 has a very bad flaw: it is jerky as hell. The on-off throttle made it impossible for me to enjoy riding it.
I actually think the throttle problem makes this bike dangerous
And for a single cylinder I found this bike to be thirsty, too.
On the plus side, it’s a attractive I think. And it sure did love to wheelie, which is always fun. Perfectly reliable as well.
But for me that on-off throttle was too much of an issue to stick with this machine
Just over a year of ownership I sold it for pretty much what I’d paid for it and went for something completely different.
And this next bike was an absolute gem!
