Gets features like cornering and adaptive colour temperature headlight

Sporty scooters are what’s trending now, but Yamaha has an ace up its sleeve, combining sportiness along with high aesthetic value as well as features. Aerox 155’s Taiwanese sibling, the Augur is a charmer, flaunting features like no other based on the platform.

When it comes to the design, we can write paragraphs and it still won’t be enough. This devilishly gorgeous-looking scooter adopts quite an alien-like design language. One would also think that it is something designed by MV Agusta.

It gets a sharp, arrow-like ‘face’ with LED projector headlights and tri-LED DRLs (star design). The sides are quite sharp and sporty, and at the same time minimal. Also, unlike the NMax 155 and Aerox 155, the Augur gets a flat floorboard.

Powering this lucid scooter is the same engine as the Aerox 155 – a 155cc liquid-cooled engine with variable valve actuation (VVA). Although the power and torque figures have not been revealed, expect them to be similar to Aerox’s figures – 15PS and 13.9Nm.

Features are where the Augur sweeps us off our feet. Apart from a 4.3-inch digital instrument console and smartphone connectivity, it comes packed with a traction control system, ABS, keyless operation and all-LED lighting.

The headlight on this scooter is quite fascinating as it also gets cornering assist, a feature mostly seen on big bikes and an adaptive colour headlight which changes the light temperature depending on the riding condition, something that’s not seen even in high-end cars!

It runs on a telescopic fork and dual shock absorber suspension setup with disc brakes at both ends. Just like the Yamaha NMax 155, this scooter too runs on 13-inch rims at both ends.

Sadly, the Augur is unlikely to come to India, but we wish that it does. However, if it does get launched in India, it would carry a pretty expensive price tag as the Aerox 155 costs Rs 1,40,800 (ex-showroom Delhi).
