For 2023, Indonesia has welcomed Yamaha's extremely popular neo-retro model, the XSR155. In Yamaha's premium small-displacement class, the XSR155 has become one of the most well-liked models in the Asian market. It mixes the commuter's practicality with the bigger XSR family members' attractiveness and road presence.
For the 2023 model year, the XSR155 mainly keeps its electronics and performance, but gets a new coat of paint for a little bit of aesthetic appeal. Yamaha has introduced four new colors for the XSR155, specifically: Metallic Red Authentic, Light Blue Wanderlust, Metallic Black Elegance, and Matte Silver Premium. While the blue and red color schemes are adorned with new decals, the silver and black color schemes are left without graphics and instead have a Yamaha symbol on the fuel tank.
Front and rear disc brakes, an inverted front fork, and a rear monoshock with preload adjustability are all included in the XSR155's chassis. The XSR155 still has a round headlight, an offset console, a streamlined fuel tank cover, a single-piece, tuck-and-roll saddle, and a retro-styled tail section. On the performance side of the equation, we have Yamaha's proven and tested 155cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine. The engine has variable valve actuation (VVA), which significantly reduces fuel consumption while producing respectable power and torque outputs of 19 horsepower and 10.3 lb-ft.
An LED lighting system throughout and a digital instrument pod round out the pretty neat tech package. The new XSR155's introduction in Indonesia is a sign that it may soon arrive in other countries in Asia like Malaysia and the Philippines, where Yamaha's entry-level neo-retro model is very popular. Due to its affordable pricing, strong performance, and eye-catching appearance, the almost similar XSR125 is incredibly well-liked among first-time riders in Europe.
