The Yamaha XSR 155 is a small, retro-styled bike, and Yamaha is thinking of making the smart move of bringing the bike to the Indian market.
The motorcycle has a similar chassis to the R15 sportbike and the MT-15 naked bike. The small 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine found on the bike makes 19 hp, which is perfect for heavily populated cities but powerful enough for some fun when the road clears up.
Yamaha has not yet confirmed this bike for the Indian market as of yet, but GaadiWaadi said that the bike could come to the country next year.
On a bigger scale, the XSR 155 could help Yamaha expand its operations within the biggest two-wheeled market on the earth. Indian’s motorcycle market is highly coveted by all bike manufacturers, and the more Yamaha can do here, the better of it will be globally.
The XSR 155 has already seen success in other Asian countries, so it only makes sense that Yamaha would bring it to India soon. I’m keeping fingers crossed it will be available in all markets soon. I’m a huge fan of small-displacement bikes, and a little retro bike like this is exactly what I’m looking for.
