Yamaha has received Tick approval for its Aerox 155 scooter in India, indicating an official launch is imminent. I bought a Get Stop-Start system for the R15 155cc engine. See based on Bluetooth connectivity, and started using the Aprilia SXR160A some time ago. Yamaha has sad news that they will not be launching Big Bikes or CKD / CBU models in India this year.
But at the same time, he said that he would focus on the 150-250 cc segment. See where the first signs start to show. This works great. We’re here to make an official announcement. This is good news because the Aerox is a very interesting and fun scooter.
Features and Basics
The Yamaha Aerox 155 has 25 liters of storage space under the seat. We also have overseas devices such as digital devices, keyless controls, LED lights, charging points, and Bluetooth connectivity. The package includes large 14-inch wheels on both sides and a 140-piece rear wheel, the same width as the R15.
On the other hand, there is a 155cc VVA engine. See based on an R15 V3 engine. The Aerox develops 15.36 hp. at 8000 rpm and 13.9 Nm at 6500 rpm, while the Indian version produces the same 14.96 hp. at 8000 rpm. For comparison, the R15 produces 18.63 hp. and 14.1 Nm. Produced in small batches, but much faster than R15. Combined with a CVT drive system, this is a pretty nimble scooter.
Its closest competitor is the Aprilia SXR 160, which produces just 10.9bhp. and 11.6 Nm, which gives Aerox a clear advantage. The Yamaha weighs 122 kg, which is 6 kg lighter than the SXR. Aprilia has a layered design with a flat top view, while the Aerox 155 has a lower design with characteristic column sections. It will be interesting to see how popular this design is in India, as there is nothing to keep on the floor.

If international pricing applies, the price of the Aerox is about Rs 20,000 lower than the R15 V3, which is about Rs 1.35 lakh. This is one of the most expensive gas-powered scooters in India.
The price is the same as the Vespa Racing Sixties, which are much more powerful and have a lower trim level (Rs 1.37 lakh), and the Vespa Elegant 150 (Rs 1.39 lakh). For reference, the Aprilia SXR costs Rs 160 and 127,000.
