Yamaha XSR155 has been officially revealed in Thailand for 91,500 Thai Baht (INR 2.11 lakh, approximate). The all-new XSR155 motorcycle is based on the brand's 'Sport Heritage' lineup that consists of higher displacement retro motorcycles like XSR700 and XSR900. Powering the motorcycle is the R15 V3’s 155cc, liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine, that is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, which is further assisted by a slipper clutch as standard. The Yamaha Thailand's official website has not listed the power and torque figures though, we can expect the XSR155 to be 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 India-specific model of the Yamaha XSR155 will feature standard telescopic front forks instead of USD (Upside Down) forks to keep the costs under check. The retro bike is equipped with front and rear disc brakes, while the India-spec model is expected to get a 2-channel ABS unit as standard. The brand is likely to launch the motorcycle in India by the end of 2019 or at the Auto Expo in February 2020. The Yamaha XSR155 is likely to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.50-1.60 lakh in the Indian market.
