Yamaha Motor Vietnam has officially introduced its latest 2021 Yamaha Exciter 155 VVA for its local market yesterday. Regarded as the third evolution for the Exciter aka Y15ZR aka “Waisuku” here in Malaysia, this new 155cc cub comes with a host of upgrades and updates that are certainly very exciting indeed.
The new Yamaha Exciter now carries some design cues taken from the brand’s sports bike options like the YZF-R6 and YZF-R1. More aggressive in its presence, there’s a whole new front LED headlight and fairing design that’s sportier and that theme flows right onto its rear. Its rear end shares a lot of similarities with the R15 entry-level sports bike.
Going down to what’s inside, the Exciter 155 VVA now carries the same 155cc SOHC engine as the R15 and MT-15, which means that it now produces 17.7hp at 9,500rpm and 14.4Nm torque at 8,000rpm. Best of all, its six-speed manual transmission is further enhanced with an assist/slipper clutch!
Other notable specs include a new LCD screen, Smart Key system, USB port, front dual-piston caliper (only for Premium variant), and a 5.4-litre fuel tank. Sadly, no ABS yet. As for pricing, the Vietnamese market can get the 2021 Yamaha Exciter 155 VVA from VND46.99 million to VND50.49 million (around RM8,235 to RM8,848).
