YZF-R3 or MT- 03?

Ba­si­cally the same ma­chine. The key dif­fer­ences are in the styling and the han­dle­bar po­si­tion, which puts the de­ci­sion down to per­sonal

pref­er­ence. Al­though, the MT- 03 does have a slight edge over the R3 in practicality thanks to its more upright

rid­ing po­si­tion.

Is it a worth­while step-up from the MT-125?

The MT-03 is £400 more ex­pen­sive than its smaller sib­ling. But for the ex­tra cash you get an­other cylin­der, bags more power and torque and a proper big bike, which is still friendly

and loads of fun. So yes, def­i­nitely.
