In terms of styling, the XSR155 is similar to the larger XSR900 and XSR700 and gets the same circular headlamp and neo-retro roadster stance.
The new XSR155 has a narrow profile thanks to a slim fuel tank and narrow seat. It gets wide handlebars though.
The teardrop-shaped fuel tank can hold 10 litres of fuel. It gets two-tone plastics and a tank-mounted ignition switch.
The seat has a flat profile and gets a ribbed finish. Seat height at 810mm is similar to the MT-15.
The old-school round headlamp gets modern LED lighting. It gets an inbuilt LED DRL as well.
The unique-looking minimalist round headlamp gets LED lighting. However, the turn indicators are bulb-type units.
The circular instrument console gets all-digital readout. This minimalist unit includes a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and gear position indicator.
The XSR155 gets a deltabox frame, upside down forks and monoshock. It gets disc brakes at both ends.
While the 17-inch alloy wheels and tyre sizes are similar to the MT-15, the XSR155 gets dual-purpose tyres.
The XSR155 is only available in Thailand for now and is priced at 91,500 baht there. There is a possibility that Yamaha India could launch the bike here next year at the 2020 Auto Expo. If launched we expect the bike to come in a BS6 compliant state of tune and be priced around Rs 1.4 lakh (ex-showroom).
