Barely two months after it launched the 15hp Aerox 155, India’s most powerful scooter, on September 21. India Yamaha Motor today introduced a new variant – in metallic black colour – priced at Rs 129,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). The company claims to have received a strong market response to the Aerox 155 since the scooter’s launch.
With the addition of the new colour, the Aerox is now sold in three colours – Racing Blue, Grey Vermillion and Metallic Black.
The new Yamaha uses the 155cc, VVA, single-cylinder engine that’s based on the one that the R15 uses and develops 15hp and 13.9 Nm. While these figures are less than those of the R15, they are much higher than any other scooter on sale in India. Combined with a CVT drivetrain, this should make for a rather sprightly scooter. At 126kg, the Yamaha Aerox 155 also has quite a competitive kerb weight.
The Aerox 155 has an underbone design with a prominent spine section. As far as features go, it has a large 25-litre underseat storage space. Other features include digital instrumentation, start-stop tech, LED lighting, a charging socket and Bluetooth connectivity. It also comes equipped with large 14-inch wheels at both ends, and a wide 140-section rear tyre.
