- Yamaha WR 155 R India launch in 2021? - Yamaha WR 155 R price in India could be Rs 1.50 lakh - Yamaha WR 155 R vs Hero XPulse 200 - Yamaha WR 155 top speed could be around 130kmph With the COVI-19 lockdown across India getting extended we have started a new series on the ZigWheels YT channel. In this series we are talking about the motorcycles that we want to see in India and kicking-off proceedings is the Yamaha WR 155 R. The Japanese brand doesn’t have an off-road bike in its India portfolio and the WR 155 R can bridge the gap between the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the Hero XPulse 200. It is powered by the same motor as seen on the Yamaha R15, which is already being manufactured in India. However, in the WR, the engine has been detuned and produces 16.7PS (19.3PS on the R15) and slightly lower torque at 14.3Nm. Talking about off-road riding, the WR 155R has all the necessary hardware 21-18inch spoke wheels wrapped around knobby tyre, long travel suspension and 245mm ground clearance. The Indonesia-spec model doesn’t get ABS, the India-spec variant could feature a single-channel unit. The biggest hurdle for Yamaha will be pricing and if they can get the price around Rs 1.50 lakh (ex-showroom), the WR 155R does look like an interesting option!
