The 2022 XSR155 comes in fresh set of color themes for the new year. The motorcycle is the retro version of the very modern platform of the R15…
While we in India are (im)patiently waiting for Yamaha to heed our prayers and bring their XSR155 to our shores, the Indonesian market has received the 2022 version of the bike with two new colours.
The Yamaha XSR155 is the retro avatar of MT15 which we get in India. It carries the trademark big round headlight, single-unit seat and big exhaust unit which adds to its retro pedigree.
For 2022, the XSR155 has received two new paint schemes. The first colour on offer is a dark shade of Blue which combines with Gray and overall Black theme to give the retro naked a distinct presence.
The Blue shade can only be seen on the front fender, under the seat and the fuel tank. The rest of the bike, including the engine, exhaust muffler, alloys and the seat, is all-Black with a little hint of Gray sprayed over the tank, engine cover etc.
The second paint scheme is the celebration of Yamaha’s 60 years in the World GP. The special livery consists of a combination of White and Red colours bringing out a special character in the machines.
The very same livery has been introduced by Yamaha on their R1, R7, R3 and R15 machines to celebrate their 60 years of heritage.
The special livery is further enhanced with Gold coloured front forks which sets this variant apart from every other machine in the line-up. Other than these visual updates, the 2022 XSR155 remains largely the same.
Feature-wise it gets a round LED headlamp, full-digital LCD digital instrumentation, tear-drop shaped fuel tank, single-unit seat and perforated exhaust canister.
Mechanically, the XSR155 borrows its heart from the MT15. It is powered by a 155 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, SOHC, engine that produces 19 BHP of power at 10,000 RPM and 14.7 Nm of torque at 8,500 RPM utilising the VVA system. It gets a 6-speed gearbox combined with a slipper clutch.
Chassis consists of a deltabox frame with USD front forks and linked monoshock suspension at rear. The bike rides on 17” alloy wheels at both ends. It weighs 134 kg (dry) and carries 10.4 litre of fuel.
In Indonesia, Yamaha offers the XSR155 for IDR 36,905,000/- (approx. Rs. 1,92,946/-) and the XSR155 60th anniversary edition for IDR 37,505,000 (approx. Rs. 1,96,102/-).
