New Premium Yamaha Sportbikes & Scooters are Coming: Last year, Yamaha Motor India made their views on the ongoing sales pattern public by clearing the fact that they will need more new premium products to keep up with their target of selling 1.20 million units in India by 2021.

The brand is not so happy with the sales number of its 100-125cc motorcycles as most fans of Yamaha prefer going for bigger displacement options like the R15, FZS, MT-15, R3, and the FZ25. The Yamaha manufacturing plant will reach the maximum production capacity by 2021 with around 1.50 million units for both the Indian as well as offshore markets.

The scooter market is growing competitive with time and Yamaha is planning to introduce new and improved products to take on the market share that has been lost with no new product introduction in the premium 150cc scooter segment.

Yamaha N-MAX and Aerox scooters are powered by the R15 V3-sourced 155cc engine, leaving the brand with the option of bringing the premium scooters that can take on the fans of Piaggio Vespa 150 series and the 150cc Aprilia scooters in India.

However, Yamaha will place their 150cc premium scooters at a higher price point as including best-in-class and high-tech features will definitely demand a bigger price tag. The Aerox and NMAX scooters are expected to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1 lakh in India.

The breakdown of local sales of Yamaha Motor India confirms that they wish to add a big chunk of buyers to their side and take the monthly sales figure to a higher 1 lakh unit mark in the coming months. The brand recently also launched 125cc Fascino and Ray ZR scooters in India.

The most powerful way to drive the new generation of buyers is to launch new 150cc premium scooters while those looking for performance-centric bikes can wait for the MT-03 and the 2020 YZF-R3 sportbikes to enter the Indian market.

At present, the last-gen R3 is available in India with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 3.52 lakh while the 2020 model is expected to get a price jump of around INR 20,000. As far as the MT-03 is concerned, it will be priced around INR 3.25 lakh (ex-showroom). Both sportbikes are expected to launch in India by the mid of this year.

The MT-15 has once again proved that people love Yamaha streetfighters and premium pricing may not be an issue for many around the country. As per one of the recent updates, the brand is also planning to launch the much-talked-about XSR155 in the Indian market.

Yamaha may not take their 100cc and 125cc motorcycles further after the implementation of the BS6 emission norms in April this year, as the motorcycles are already not sitting at a profitable point for the brand. This also means that Yamaha could then place itself as a premium brand with just scooters available under INR 1 lakh.

The association of Yamaha with Monster Energy has resulted in five special edition models for the Indonesian market. The first product is slightly familiar, known by the name R15 V3 and getting just two changes in the Indian market. The R15 Monster Energy Edition in Indonesia is available with USD forks and aluminium rear footpeg holders along with the special livery. For those who love quarter-litre machines, Yamaha has brought the new R25 with USD forks and all the updated features to the Monster Energy list. The model is also available with a 321cc (R3) engine worldwide.

The Indonesia-exclusive Vixion, MX King and Aerox 155 are the three remaining products that went forward with the Monster Energy special edition livery. All of them share the huge M moniker on the panels along with black gloss base paint and blue inserts. The working parts are similar to the stock models while no performance upgrade has been given to the products with special branding.

The launch of the Yamaha R15 V3 Monster Energy edition in India is definitely possible. The sportbike is powered by a 155.1cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. The most powerful production 155cc engine is good for 19.3 HP and 14.7 Nm of torque. The R15 V3 features assist and slipper clutch, VVA, six-speed gearbox, and many other segment-leading features.

The standard model of the R15 V3 is available in India for INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom). Indian market could get the Monster Energy edition based on the existing R15 V3 as Yamaha had earlier launched the MotoGP edition for a price jump of INR 2000. The Darknight Edition is currently available with the same price difference and expecting the R15 V3 Monster Energy edition to get a price tag of INR 1.42 lakh won’t be wrong at all.

2019 Yamaha Aerox 155 is now officially available in Thailand for 74,400 baht (INR 1.62 lakh approx). The price mentioned here is for the ABS variant and practically, this is the only version that fits the Indian market requirement. However, the Aerox 155 R variant at 67,400 baht (INR 1.46 lakh approx) comes without ABS while adding the sporty bits like painted alloy wheels and rear suspension with gas-charged function. The smart key function and start/stop system is exclusive to the ABS variant and thus, the high price gets justified for the Thai market.

The fuel tank measures 4.6-litres, strictly announcing the 2019 Yamaha Aerox 155 as a city-specific sport scooter with R15 V3-derived engine. The gearbox is automatic and thus, those who feel manual shifting is a problem can concentrate more on the fun factor. The scooter is available in three variants in Thailand, considering the local market demand and taking into account the number of buyers for every added detail. ABS is not yet mandatory in Thailand and most brands offer dual-channel unit as optional on their products. Aerox 155 has a different power output in comparison to the R15 V3, resulting in a bit more decent ride quality for the owners.

The scooter is available in a limited number of colour combinations, with R variant being the most radical with neon-painted wheels and golden gas canisters. If launched in India, the model cannot be priced competitively in the commuter scooter segment and will rival the premium counterparts like SR 150 from Aprilia and Vespa 150cc series. The pricing will fall in the same segment (around INR 1 lakh) as the present generation FZ and thus, may not prove to be as frugal as most expectations. The 2019 Yamaha Aerox 155 comes with water cooling and fuel injection.

Yamaha Aerox 155 was recently spotted at a dealership in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. According to the dealer (Vaishnavi Automobile), the scooter is not for sale and it has been specially imported from Indonesia to put on display at the showroom. Yamaha Aerox was officially unveiled in 2016 and the 155cc scooter currently sells in select markets around the globe.

Calling it the scooter version of R15 V3 won’t be wrong as it shares the same VVA engine. The 155.1cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled engine on the scooter is good for 14.8 BHP at 8,000 rpm and 14.4 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The engine is available in this de-tuned state for scooter friendly dynamics.

Yamaha offers impressive design lines that includes twin LED front headlights and LED rear lights on Aerox 155. Features are class leading as it comes with 5.8 inch LCD display, smart key ignition and ABS. Scooter market is growing rapidly and more powerful products will further help riders select comfort packed performance for improved riding experience in India.

Yamaha launched the R15 V3 and 2018 model of R3 in India @ Auto Expo 2018. As of now, Yamaha has not made any official announcement regarding the launch of Aerox in India. Aerox is one of the most-awaited products in India and we hope the brand brings it here in coming months.

Yamaha is presently gaining traction through commuter centric products and scooters as introducing new products has helped them retain the number five spot in terms of sale number in India. If launched in India, Aerox 155 is expected to demand something close to INR 80,000-90,000 (ex-showroom).

Quick Specs of Yamaha Aerox 155

Maximum Power 14.89 HP @ 8000 rpm
