Design: 2020 Yamaha Aerox 155: At a glance
Yamaha Aerox 155 has a sharp aerodynamic look and features a wide apron housing a sleek dual-pod headlight cluster with DRLs, a small visor on the handlebar cowl, and a slightly stepped-up seat.
The scooter packs a blue-backlit LCD screen with Bluetooth connectivity, 25-liter under-seat storage, an all-LED lighting setup, key-less ignition, and engine kill switch. It also has a 5.5-liter fuel tank.
Fact: Power and performance
The 2020 Yamaha Aerox 155 draws power from a 155cc, single-cylinder engine with variable valve actuation (VVA), which generates 15.36hp of maximum power at 8,000rpm and 13.9Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. The mill is mated to a CVT gearbox.
Safety: What about safety and suspension setup?
To ensure the rider's safety, the 2020 Yamaha Aerox 155 is equipped with a disc brake on the front wheel and a drum brake on the rear, along with single-channel ABS, for improved handling on the roads.
Meanwhile, the suspension duties on the scooter are taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and a unit swing on the rear end.
Fact: How much does it cost?
In Indonesia, the 2020 Yamaha Aerox 155 scooter carries a price-tag of IDR 25.5 million (roughly Rs. 1.29 lakh). However, the premium two-wheeler is unlikely to make its way to India.
