- Yamaha XSR 155 new colour launched in Thailand
- Remains unchanged mechanically
As a part of the 2021 update, Yamaha has introduced a new grey colour scheme for the XSR 155 in Thailand. This new paint scheme is slightly different from the older black, grey and white-red colour options. It sports a bold ‘XSR155’ decal on the grey fuel tank, as opposed to the ‘Yamaha’ sticker on older colours. It also gets white under seat panels that adds a bit more coolness than the black unit. Moreover, the ribber-pattern seat gets beige finishing.
The XSR 155 is based on Yamaha’s highly popular YZF R15 V3 as both share a common engine and frame. Interestingly, the motorcycle is extremely popular amongst Indian riders who want it to come to India, as observed by the relentless queries we receive about its India launch. Paying heed to this demand, Yamaha has developed the India-specific FZ X that gets a similar styling but is based on the cheaper FZ FI.

Apart from the introduction of a new paint scheme, the 2021 Yamaha XSR 155 has remained unchanged in Thailand. Holding on to its perimeter frame is a 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with VVA (variable valve actuation) that makes 18.7bhp and 14.7Nm. It comes mated to a six-speed gearbox along with a slipper clutch. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels that are suspended by inverted forks and a monoshock while braking is handled by a single disc at both ends.
