Considering the rise in the sales of retro-inspired small displacement motorcycles in Europe, Yamaha is planning the same for the Indonesian market. The brand is likely to introduce the Yamaha XSR 155 in Indonesia which will be based on its heritage lineup that consists of higher displacement retro motorcycles like XSR 700 and XSR 900. Yamaha will be adopting the same design language of the 'Sports Heritage' series for the XSR 155. Powering the motorcycle will be the R15 V3's 155cc, liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine, capable of churning out a maximum power of 19.3 HP at 10,000 rpm and an utmost torque of 14.7 Nm at 8500 rpm. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox that will be assisted by a slipper clutch as standard.

The retro-inspired round headlamp will give the bike an overall 'Sports Heritage' look while it is likely to feature the same fully-digital instrument console as seen on the Yamaha XSR 700 and XSR 900. According to the reports, Yamaha might use a deltabox chassis for the XSR 155 instead of the trellis frame in order to keep the price in check. The brand is likely to launch the motorcycle in India as well after its initial launch in Indonesia by the end of 2019. It is also being rumoured that Yamaha may showcase the India-spec XSR 155 at the Auto Expo in February 2020. The India-specific model of the Yamaha XSR 155 will feature standard telescopic front forks instead of USD (Upside Down) forks. The motorcycle is likely to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.50-1.60 lakh in the Indian market.
