Latest Updates on Yamaha Aerox 155

  • At the 2022 carandbike Awards, the Yamaha Aerox 155 maxi scooter was named the Two-Wheeler Design of the Year.
  • Yamaha has increased the price of all two-wheelers in India, and Yamaha Aerox 155 is no exception.

Introduction of Yamaha Aerox 155

Yamaha Aerox is the first max scooter the Japanese company has put on the market in India.

The Aerox looks different from other scooters on the Indian market because it doesn’t have the traditional step-through design with a flat floorboard. Instead, it is built like a backbone, with a prominent spine section in front of the seat. Your legs go on the sides of this spine section.

The AEROX 155 was made with three things in mind: a proud body size, athletic proportions, and an X-centre motif and done with the idea of making a “heart-shaking speedster”.

Putting aside how well it works and its features, one main reason people love this scooter is its muscular and sporty looks, and it’s one-of-a-kind because of its features and specification.

The Aerox looks sharp and aggressive because it has two LED headlights that look like they mean business. The big engine and exhaust system also give the back of the scooter an intense look.

Highlights of Yamaha Aerox 155

Design of the Yamaha Aerox 155

The Yamaha Aerox 155 is a scooter that stands out. It looks like it should be in the MotoGP pits, ready to take Valentino Rossi to meet his fans.

There is a huge set of split LED headlights in front with LED DRLs as brows above them. This set-up works well to light up the road in front of you at night.

Like on the R15 V4, the turn signals are traditional bulbs on the sharply designed side panels.

The Aerox is different from other scooters on the market in how the floorboard is made. Instead of a flat floorboard, a column in the middle holds the fuel tank and divides the two footwells. But the lower fuel tank helps the bike handle better because the centre of gravity is lower.

The intelligent design of the scooter continues on the back, with a neatly built-in LED tail light and a nice, chunky 140-section tire.

Unlike a typical Indian scooter, the scooter gets a two-level seat, and the two-level seat keeps both the rider and the passenger steady and comfortable.

Colour and Variants of the Yamaha Aerox 155

Yamaha Aerox 155 comes in 4 colour options. They are:

  • Metallic Black
  • Racing Blue
  • Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition
  • Grey Vermillion.

Yamaha Aerox 155 is available in just one variant.

  • STD

Engine of the Yamaha Aerox 155

The Aerox 155 has a liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 4-valve, fuel-injected, VVA, 155cc, 4-valve, 4-valve, fuel-injected, VVA engine that can produce up to 15.0PS at 8000rpm and 13.9N.m (1.4kgf.m) at 6500rpm.

The engine lost 3.3bhp and 0.3Nm of power and torque when the bike got a CVT gearbox added to make it a good fit for a scooter.

Features of the Yamaha Aerox 155

The Aerox 155 is a scooter that has a lot of features. It has buttons that let you open the storage under the seat or the fuel filler cap—no need to struggle to figure out whether to push or pull on the key to turn it.

When it comes to the gas filler cap, it’s also in a good place- on the column on the floorboard. The space under the seat is 24.5 litres, and Yamaha says it can hold one XL full-face helmet and other things. It can, as long as the top of the helmet is facing down.

The scooter offers a feature to charge a phone, which will be tight for the bigger phones that are so common these days.

Both ends of this scooter have LED lights. Then there is a nice-looking LCD screen with a lot of information, like a tachometer, trip meters, VVA indicator, fuel gauge/consumption and battery status.

The instrument cluster also has Bluetooth and shows incoming call and text alerts, app alerts, and the phone’s battery status.

The Y-connect app lets you do many things, like make phone calls, track your location, get alerts when something goes wrong, track how much fuel you use, and see engine data on your phone screen through the “Revs dashboard.”

Even though the Aerox 155 has all of this, it doesn’t have turn-by-turn navigation, a feature cheaper scooters have.

Transmission, suspension and brakes of the Yamaha Aerox 155

The Aerox 155 has the exact Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) 155 cc engine as the R15. A CVT transmission gets paired with the motor.

The 26mm forks take care of the front suspension, and the back suspension is taken care of by twin shocks. Overall, the ride is pretty stiff, but it’s never too stiff to be uncomfortable. It, along with the thick tires on the 110-section front and 140-section rear 14-inch wheels, makes for a very motorcycle-like ride.

A 230mm disc handles the front brakes and has a single-channel ABS system. But the rear brake is a 130mm drum brake, which is a little disappointing. The force on the front brake is very sharp and straight.

The ABS system is also well-tuned. But the rear brakes aren’t as good as they could be and feel a bit spongy.

Expert Reviews for Yamaha Aerox 155

  • With the VVA technology from the R15 engine and the engine’s speed, the engine rarely runs out of steam. That makes riding a lot less stressful because you never have to hunt for the right gear, and you always have the right amount of power coming out of a turn.

  • The power and torque characteristics of the bore x stroke are excellent. When the cylinder head gets combined with a small combustion chamber, the compression ratio goes up. It makes the combustion process more efficient. It also improves reliability by making the coolant path better.

  • The Aerox doesn’t have quite the same “kick in the rear” as an EV, but once it gets going, it’s fast and linear and doesn’t lose speed until the speedometer reads 100 mph.

  • The Aerox feels much heavier to steer, and you have to work to turn it into corners.

  • Even though it’s big, it’s not the roomiest scooter. There’s no room for bags on the floorboard, and there’s not much room for your feet. Because of how the front apron is made, it will always hit the knees of taller riders, and the step on the seat makes it hard to slide back too far.

  • Under the seat, on the other hand, there is a lot of space. With the fuel tank moved to that prominent part of the backbone, you get a lot of space under the saddle: 24.5 litres. But the fuel tank is only 5.5 litres, which isn’t very big for a scooter with this reputation.

Conclusion

At Rs 1.39 lakh ex-showroom, the Aerox 155 is not cheap! But when you consider that it has a sophisticated engine, a well-thought-out chassis with handling that puts some motorcycles to shame, a long list of features, and a tremendous overall riding experience, the price starts to make more sense.

Yamaha made a bold move when it put the Aerox 155 scooter on the market in India. It is not the kind of scooter that will set sales charts on fire. And Yamaha knows this too. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be a success on its own.

The scooter offers a quick and easy way to get around the city, thanks to its powerful engine and CVT transmission. It’s also more convenient than a motorcycle because it has much more storage space under the seat. It’s also easy to ride on the highway and fun to ride in the curves.

If you like these things, the Aerox should be at the top of your list of things to buy. Yamaha Aerox 155 is a good deal at Rs 1.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
