The XSR155 follows Yamaha’s ‘Sport Heritage’ design similar to the XSR 700 and XSR 900 that are available in international markets. It gets a tear-drop shaped tank, a round full-LED headlamp and full-LED tail lamp along a single-piece seat that adds to its old-school charm.
Furthermore, the XSR155 sports headlamp brackets, a redesigned sump guard and a redesigned exhaust plate that has a pore-like design inspired from retro motorcycles. The bike uses the same Deltabox frame and 155cc engine that does duty on the R15-V3 and the MT-15. This unit produces 19bhp and 14.7Nm and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox along with an assist and slipper clutch.
It rides on upside-down forks at the front along with a monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, braking is done by disc brakes at both ends. However, the Indian-spec model will sport telescopic forks upfront and also get a single-channel ABS to assist in braking.
Yamaha has equipped the XSR155 with a single-pod instrument cluster that displays all vital information and gets a distinctive, semi-circle tachometer. The XSR155 is offered in four paint schemes- Premium Grey, White/Red Sports Heritage, Black Elegance and Green Wanderlust.
