Yamaha XSR155 features include dual purpose tyres which would provide it a more versatile usability than the streetfighter MT15…
So R15’s sibling XSR155 is here (…here in Thailand!) and it has already created a lot of interest in other countries, including India! This classic machine is being badged as ‘Sports Heritage‘ in Thailand and comes in the following four colour themes –
- Sport Heritage – It is a combination of dual colours of red and white. The base is painted in white whereas there is a red coloured stripe and the front fender is also painted in red. It is the only colour in the palette which comes with golden coloured upside down front forks, which enhance the looks of the minimalist machine!
- Premium – It gets grey colour with contrast brown/tan seat
- Elegance – It is done in single matte black colour throughout the motorcycle and looks dope!
- Wanderlust – Done in military green colour with matte shade, it sports silver decals on the tank.
Apart from a differentiated colour palette, XSR155 is offered with these following features…
Yamaha XSR155 Features
- Round LED Headlamp & Taillamp – The circular headlamp has a nice DRL over it. The protruding round tail lamp also has a retro touch to it.
- Digital Meter – XSR gets a nice little all digital LCD meter which shows speed, engine rpm, gears, fuel etc.
- 155cc Engine – XSR uses the same single cylinder liquid cooled motor of the MT15. It continues to be equipped with VVA (Variable Valve Actuation). However, for some reason Yamaha has not shared the power and torque figures on its website yet.
- Dual Purpose Tyres – Unlike road-tyres for the R15 and MT15, XSR155 is equipped with dual purpose, semi-knobby tyres which can take a wee bit of bad roads.
After the XSR155, rumours of a possible XSR300 (based on R3) have also resurfaced (details here) which will further enhance the XSR lineup which currently has a 700cc (XSR700) as the next model. You can check out pics of XSR155 here.
