Yamaha’s neo-retro entry-level motorcycle viewed and explained in pictures from all angles

Yamaha's 155cc platform seems to have worked wonders for the company and has already spawned two performance-oriented bikes - the MT-15 and R15 V3.0. The same unit also powers the Yamaah NMax 155, which is essentially a maxi-scooter. In order to capitalise on the demand, Yamaha has now launched the XSR155 in Thailand, a beginner-friendly neo-retro motorcycle using the same powerplant and mechanicals as its streetfighter and supersport siblings. Here’s everything you need to know about the XSR155 in detailed images. 

The bike looks like a watered-down version of the bigger, more powerful XSR900 and XSR700. It retains the same neo-retro design language coupled with modern components.

Naturally, the bike is sleeker and more compact compared to its elder siblings. Aside from its 155cc engine, the XSR155 features a slim seat and narrow fuel tank coupled with wide handlebars.  

The dome-shaped headlamp retains the classic appeal, but features modern LED lighting. The turn indicators, on the other hand, are conventional bulb units to keep costs in check.

The neo-retro design language also flows through the XSR155’s full-digital instrument console. The circular dial displays readouts such as a speedometer, odometer, two trip metres, fuel gauge and gear position indicator. All the tell-tale lights are neatly stacked at the bottom of the console.

The bike's teardrop-shaped fuel tank gets dual-tone panels and a tank-mounted key fob. Unfortunately, it can only hold 10 litres of fuel which may affect its overall range. 

The tan coloured seat gets a flat profile and a ribbed design that gels well with the bike's old school theme. The seat height of 810mm is the same as the MT-15 and should be ideal of average-sized riders. 

The tail light is an all-LED unit which is mounted on top of the rear fender for better visibility. 

No surprise here! The XSR155 is powered by the same 155cc, liquid-cooled motor seen on the the MT-15 and R15 V3.0 which features VVA (Variable Valve Actuation). The motor generates 19.3PS and 14.7Nm mated to a 6-speed transmission. The slip and assist clutch system is found on this bike too.

The XSR155’s 17-inch alloys come wrapped in dual-purpose tyres instead of the road-going rubber seen on the MT-15 and Yamaha R15 V3.0. 

In terms of underpinnings, the XSR155 employs a deltabox frame, an upside-down fork and a monoshock. Anchoring the bike are disc brakes at both ends. 

Unfortunately, the XSR155 is only available in Thailand as of now with a sticker price of 91,500 baht. Considering that Yamaha already manufacturers most of the bike's mechanical components in India, we could expect the entry-level roadster to be launched at the 2020 Auto Expo. And if the bike makes its way to India, we could expect it to come with a BS6-compliant engine, a conventional telescopic fork and a price tag of around Rs 1.4 lakh (ex-showroom).
