Over 40 years ago Yamaha released their XT500 in 1976, still seen today as one off the most legendary offroad motorcycles ever produced.
With the modern day factory scrambler trend, we redesigned and rebuild an Yamaha MT-03 facory stock roadbike in honour of Yamaha’s first offroad motorcycle, the legendary XT500.
The earlier models of the Yamaha MT-03 came with a 660cc single cilinder engine, the same engine used in the XT660 Z and Tenere. These models, as XT’s, are directly related to the original XT500. This also makes the MT-03 one of the youngest relatives in de XT family tree. As a naked-roadbike, you could view the MT-03 as the odd stepbrother of the family.
It takes more than just esthetic changes to re-design a roadbike into an offroad capable machine, Ofcourse keeping the original chassis still makes the bike top heavy at its front end, and will never compare to a dirtbike. But the concept was to honour the XT by a modern scrambler, and this worked out great!
After updating the suspention with a full Wilbers set front and rear, calculating and mounting the right radial Brembo mastercylinder to match the calipers, making a custom RVS exhaust with Supertrapp mufflers and adding DNA high flowing filters and a DynoJet Powercommander to get the mixture adjustments right, the bike is more powerful then ever and has a crispy throttle response to its new Dynamo throttle assembly. It brakes as it should, and has an overall better drivability.
To get the right balance between oldskool offroad and the modern scrambler design, we mounted RVS fenders front and rear. We kept the front blank for a more retro look and mounted it on a 80’s inspired offroad/enduro bracket. Scrambler headlight, XL offroad footpegs, stoneguard, and Nekken barclamps, bars and grips perfectly fit the offroad theme. The Miller seat is done in grey suede, as suwde has better grip characteristics then normal leather. The stitching is inspired by the nobby tires. The utility saddle bag just behind the seat is inspired by the bags introduced on 80’s and early 90’s offroad bikes. It functions for storing a small toolroll or lock, and also functions as a passenger seat after fitting a piece of foam made to fit the bag. The little luggage rack mounts right over the utility bag and can hold your tent or tarp and hammock.
We kept the original plastic tank as a nod to modern enduro bikes, and redesigned and tweeked the 76’ XT500 graphics to fit the tank.
Last but not least the bike comes with a set of Continental TKC 80 tires to complete the style.
