New entry into the Thailand market is the 2019 Yamaha XSR 155, priced at 91,500 Thai baht (RM12,364). This naked sports comes in retro styling and is targetted to the young rider looking for something different from the Yamaha MT-15 or YZF-R15.

Carrying the Yamaha VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) liquid-cooled, single-cylinder power plant displacing 155 cc, Yamaha Thailand did not supply any power or torque numbers for the XSR 155. However, based on the R15 which comes with a similar engine, a figure of 19.3 hp with 15 Nm of torque would not be out of the question.

Fuelling is by EFI while power gets tot the ground via a six-speed gearbox and chain final drive. 10 litres of fuel is carried in the tank while seat height is 810 mm off the ground and the XSR 155 has a claimed weight of 134 kg.

Suspension is with telescopic forks in front and a monoshock at the back, adjustable for preload. Braking is done with a single disc front and rear, with hydraulic callipers.

There are four colour options for the 2019 Yamaha XSR 155 – Premium Grey, White/Red Sports Heritage, Black Elegance and Green Wanderlust. Rolling on 17-inch alloy wheels, the XSR 155 is shod with 110/70 rubber in front and 140/70 at the back.
