The Yamaha XSR 155 was launched in Thailand recently.
It’s the neo classic model in Yamaha’s “155 family.”
It’s equipped with the 155cc VVA unit shared from the YZF-R15.
The Yamaha XSR 155 was just launched in Thailand to a rousing welcome.
It completes the “Yamaha 155” family which already includes the NVX (automatic scooter), Y15ZR, MT-15 naked bike and YZF-R15 sportbike.
As with its bigger brother the XSR 700 and XSR 900, the XSR 155 takes on the “neo classic” styling which combines modern and classic elements. Think round headlight and taillight, teardrop shaped fuel tank, ribbed bench seat (some call it the “bread loaf” seat”), megaphone exhaust. The seat features a tan-colour cover to lend an even more classic look. The exhaust heat shield is in perforated tommy gun style. The instrument cluster is round in shape. Finally, a tall handlebar completes the package.
Powering the XSR 155 is the 155cc liquid-cooled Single with VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) from the YZF-R15. Yamaha didn’t fettle with it in any way thus the performance figures are 19 hp and 14.7 Nm of torque.
The engine is suspended in Yamaha’s signature Deltabox, while the front forks are upside-down. A monoshock takes care of rear end suspension duties.
The bike is priced at THB 91,500 (RM 12,363 as of 17thAugust). Plan on seeing the bike in Malaysia at the end of 2020, should Hong Leong Yamaha Motor chooses to assembled it locally.
