Yamaha Aerox 155: engine and gearbox
One of the biggest highlights of the new Aerox 155 is, as its name suggests, the 155cc, VVA, single-cylinder engine that’s based on the one that R15 uses. In global markets, the Aerox makes 15.36hp and 13.9Nm, while the Indian version makes 15hp and 13.9Nm.
While these figures are less than those of the R15, they are much higher than any other scooter on sale in India. Combined with a CVT drivetrain, this should make for a rather sprightly scooter. At 126kg, the Yamaha Aerox 155 also has quite a competitive kerb weight.

Yamaha Aerox 155: pricing
At Rs 1.29 lakh, the Aerox 155 is quite well priced. The limited-edition MotoGP edition is priced at Rs 1.30 lakh. The pricing puts it below the Vespa Racing Sixties (Rs 1.37 lakh) and Vespa Elegante 150 (Rs 1.39 lakh), which are far less powerful and feature lower equipment levels too. For reference, the Aprilia SXR 160 costs Rs 1.27 lakh.
