Small, but perfectly formed. Yamaha's baby boomer is the perfect antidote to the humdrum urban commute
AS IT'S CHRISTMAS time you've perhaps had to face that snap decision when someone passes a tin of chocolates around the office. It's a tough call. Not wishing to hold up proceedings by spending ages checking what's what, you have to take a pot shot. Sometimes you hit the jackpot and land a toffee, but there's always the nightmare of the coffee cream.Buying a middleweight bike is almost as confusing and risky a decision. Just look at what's on show; at the last count I made it over 30 bikes of about 600cc, covering every style and nearly every engine configuration imaginable. The key to selecting your perfect match is to be honest with yourself about what you want the bike to do, and where you're going to ride it.Why do I say this? Take the new MT-03 as an example. Yamaha's latest addition to the fledgling MT range will be a great bike for some riders, but a disaster for others. It's all about what potential owners are planning to do with it.Which Yamaha obviously knows since it chose the roads for this launch to perfectly emphasise the best bits of the bike.
