Yamaha’s funky looking Aerox 155 scooter has been spotted in a dealership in India. Now before we get our hopes high and start dreaming of buying a proper moto scooter in India, let’s give ourselves a reality check. Even though we hate to say it, but we feel the new 155cc scooter is here to be showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. We say so because at the 2016 Auto Expo, Yamaha had showcased the Nmax 155 but it was never launched in India. And hence, we believe that the Aerox 155 will also be showcased as a brand building exercise only. All said and done, Yamaha is expected to launch a new scooter at the 2018 Auto Expo and our bet is that it will be a new 125cc scooter on the lines of the Nozza Grande.

According to reports, officials from the dealership, where the Yamaha Aerox 155 was spotted, have said that it will be launched on February 25, 2017. We take the above with a pinch of salt though. If dealership officials are to be believed, we should expect a 155cc scooter with ABS as that was the one spied. However, considering the fact that Yamaha had skipped ABS on the R3, to keep costs under check, it is highly doubtful that it will offer the same on a 155cc scooter. Also, with the current specification, the Aerox would easily be priced north of Rs 1 lakh and the Indian market isn’t ready for such an expensive scooter yet.

The Yamaha Aerox 155 is a proper moto-scooter that looks sporty and futuristic with its sculpted body panels. The scooter has been equipped with features like a LED headlamp and tail light, a massive 5.9-inch all-digital instrument console, mobile charger, smart key and generous 25 litres of underseat storage space. The fuel tank has been placed under the footboard, whereas the external fuel filler cap has been placed on top of it and can be opened via a switch next to the keyhole.

Powering the scooter is a 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor generating 15PS of power and 13.8Nm of peak torque. Yamaha engineers have also equipped the engine with VVA (variable valve actuation) as seen on the upcoming Yamaha R15 Version 3.0. The scooter runs on large 14-inch wheels on both ends and it tips the scale at 116kg which should make it a peppy scooter to ride. We will be reporting live from the 2018 Auto Expo.
