Here's what I found guys:

Running on MT
The 1999 Tokyo Motor Show had a concept called the Yamaha MT-01 which was, frankly speaking, very scary to look at. The bike was on the lines of the V-Max power cruiser, and was little more than a massive engine with wheels. The ultimate expression on power. Now, at the Milan Show, comes the Yamaha MT-03 concept. The design brief was that of a Roadster (read naked, aggressive and immediately enjoyable) Motard (from supermotard. Read agile, in vogue). The result is a stunning, compact machine powered by a crisp, torquey single cylinder engine, with LED lights front and rear and the promise of an exciting ride. Even in traffic. Designers say that the bike was designed so that it could be put into production should the crowd reaction be favourable. Fine, we'll take three.
