The Yamaha Sniper 155 has an indicator-mounted front apron, a stepped-up single-piece seat, and an upswept exhaust. The 155R variant also gets a smart key system and a 12V power socket. The scooter packs a negative LCD instrument cluster, an all-LED lighting setup, and rides on designer wheels. It is available in Yellow Hornet, Race Blue, Matte Titan, and Black Raven shades.
Fact: It is fueled by an 18hp, 155cc engine

To make sure that the riders are safe, the Yamaha Sniper 155 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front as well as rear wheels. However, there seems to be no ABS for better handling on roads. Suspension duties on the sports scooter are taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
