    2022 Yamaha Aerox 155cc MotoGP Edition Launch Price Rs 1.41 L

    Yamaha Aerox 155 is powered by a performant 155cc engine derived from YZF-R15 V4 and gets a host of mechanical goodies along with itYamaha Aerox 155 Monster Energy MotoGP EditionYamaha Aerox 155 is that one scooter that might come under “Do it all” category. It is not the only one of its kind as we have maxi-styled scooters like Aprilia SXR 160. As their names indicate, Aprilia gets a 160.03cc engine, while Yamaha gets a 155cc engine. We also have maxi-styled scooters in 125cc segments like Suzuki Burgman Street and Aprilia SXR 125.Sticking to higher capacity maxi-styled scooters, Honda is surprisingly absent from this segment. It is not a reflection of Honda’s interest in scooters in India at all. As the Jap is currently the highest-selling scooter manufacturer in the country by an outstanding margin.With Aerox 155, Yamaha has not just offered a maxi-styled scooter and called it a day. Aerox 155 gets a lot of sauce to compete to the highest level. Sauce in the form of an R15-derived 155cc engine with a 4V head, VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) and liquid cooling. Yeah! Show me another scooter this techy and at this price point. I’ll wait.2022 Yamaha Aerox MotoGP EditionTo offer more visual sauce, Yamaha has now launched a Monster Energy MotoGP Edition. This move comes with introduction of 2022 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition line-up, under ‘The Call of the Blue’ brand campaign in India. We also witnessed a MotoGP Edition of R15 V4 earlier this month too.Yamaha Scooter Prices – September 2022In this regard, Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. announced the pricing too. MotoGP Edition of the maxi-sports scooter is priced at Rs. 1,41,300 (Ex-showroom, Delhi), and is available across all premium Blue Square outlets in India. At just Rs. 2,000 increment, the asking price doesn’t seem to be much either. Yamaha promises to offer MotoGP-inspired editions in the future as well.For this extra money, Yamaha Aerox 155 Monster Energy MotoGP Edition draws inspiration from colour schemes of Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP M1 Motorcycle. This sporty scooter now gets an all-black colour treatment along with Yamaha MotoGP branding on the visor, front apron, front mudguard, side panels, rear panels and the ‘X’ Centre Motif. We have seen a similar design before as well.Specs & FeaturesComing to what drives Yamaha Aerox Monster Energy MotoGP Edition forward, we have R15 V4’s engine. It displaces 155cc and makes 15 PS of power at 8,000 RPM and 13.9 Nm of torque at 6,500 RPM. That’s not all. It gets VVA tech, a 4V head, liquid cooling and is mated to a CVT, unlike R15 which is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.Yamaha Motorcycles Prices – September 2022Mechanically, this Yamaha Aerox Monster Energy MotoGP Edition is completely carried over. Talking about its cycle parts, it gets telescopic front suspension, mono-shock suspension at the rear, front disc brake measuring 230mm, and rear drum brake. Yamaha Aerox 155 gets 14” alloy wheels at both ends with 110/80 section rubber at front and 140/70 section rubber at the rear. Also on offer is single-channel ABS as standard.With a low 790mm seat height and relatively low 126 kg of kerb weight, Aerox 155 comes off as an easy scooter to fettle with. Especially considering the performance and equipment it packs. Features include a large 24.5L boot and Bluetooth connectivity among others. Standard trim price start from Rs. 1,39,300 and Yamaha Aerox Monster Energy MotoGP Edition costs Rs. 1,41,300 (both prices ex-sh). More

    2023 Yamaha XMax 300cc Scooter Spied – Honda Forza Rival

    In terms of exterior design, the XMax 300 test mule spotted overseas appears largely the same as current model2023 Yamaha XMax 300ccAs there’s hardly any difference in the skin, it’s likely that Yamaha may be focusing on upgrading the equipment list offered with XMax 300. For example, some new features could be introduced. Another possibility is a new variant, but it’s too early to accurately define such possibilities.Some key features of Yamaha XMax 300 maxi-scooter include an aggressive front fascia, full LED lighting, large windscreen, comfortable riding stance, step-up seat, chunky exhaust and large underseat storage. XMax 300 is preferred for its powerful performance and agile handling, all while offering the comforts typically associated with a scooter.2023 Yamaha XMax 300 to get quieter exhaust?While it’s not clear why XMax 300 is out there on road tests, it may have something to do with upcoming European Union noise restrictions. The official EU statement says that the existing Euro 5 noise limits will be revised and implemented as a separate act. The quantum of changes in noise limit and when exactly it will be implemented is yet to be finalized.However, as OEMs work in a proactive manner, Yamaha may have started working on the exhaust note of XMax 300 even before the new rules are enforced. XMax 300 currently has a throaty exhaust note, which may not comply with the new noise limits. Updated Euro 5 noise limits may take some time to implement, as OEMs and their suppliers will need to make multiple changes. Subsequently, these will need to be tested for reliability and performance in addition to the compliance part.2023 Yamaha XMax 300ccA cost-benefit analysis for different sound levels and their associated practicality and efficacy is currently being evaluated by the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM). As per existing Euro 5 regulations, motorcycles with 175cc engines and above are required to have a noise limit of 80 decibels.Focus is on two-wheelers, as these are among the major contributors to noise pollution. European Union wants to have quieter cities, which is where the revised noise limits will be playing a crucial role. Enforcement of the new noise limit rules will be done with the help of noise radars that are already functional in European cities like Paris.2023 XMax 300 specs unchangedWhile the upcoming version of XMax 300 may be quieter, there are unlikely to be any major changes to the hardware. It may be possible to comply with updated Euro 5 noise limits just by introducing some changes to the exhaust setup. Yamaha XMax 300 is powered by a 292cc, liquid cooled motor that generates 28 PS of max power at 7,250 rpm and 29 Nm of peak torque at 5,750 rpm. It is mated to a V-belt automatic transmission.Suspension system comprises telescopic forks at front and swingarm unit at rear. Both ends have disc brakes, 267 mm front and 245 mm rear. Other key features of Yamaha XMax 300 include traction control system (TCS), smart key with remote locking, 12V outlet at front and white-on-black LCD instrument console. Upon launch, 2023 Yamaha XMax 300cc will take on the Honda Forza 300.Source More

    Yamaha 150cc Scrambler Custom Built In Blue And White – Looks Rad

    SR150 is a budget commuter by Yamaha which is a Taiwan-specific model and not a retro bike, but is popular with modding communityYamaha 150cc ScramblerYamaha SR series is one of the most popular by the Japanese company. It spawns motorcycles with single-cylinder engines. Especially SR400 and SR500 which are some of the most renowned of this series. But Yamaha SR150 doesn’t get same love as it isn’t a retro bike, unlike its bigger siblings.Heck, SR150 is only Taiwan-specific and is not even sold in JDM. But as we know, motorcycles are beyond just machines with 2 wheels and form an emotional connection with their owner. My father’s 32 years old CD100 is still with us and runs like a charm and will probably outlive me. Same set of emotional connections was with this SR150’s owner.Hence he summoned Twist.Co, a two-man custom shop based in Taichung City in central Taiwan, to make a custom Yamaha SR150 Scrambler. Result is perhaps one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever by Yamaha. Let’s take a look.Yamaha SR150 Scrambler CustomFor starters, its commuter body panels are completely taken off and replaced with what can be described as a work of art. Let’s start with the prettiest part of this build, fuel tank. It is not sourced from other motorcycles which could have made the job easier. But instead, it was fabricated by hand specifically for this build.Yamaha SR150 Scrambler Custom HandlebarFuel tank of Yamaha SR150 Scrambler takes a teardrop shape and the seam where its two panels are welded is converted into a stylish ridge instead of filing it away. It also gets an offset fuel filler cap and gets a neat paint of blue, white and gold. This is the only part of this build that is painted while rest of the body panels get a buffed finish with exposed aluminium. Even Triumph-inspired Yamaha logo is custom.It gets a cute and small round headlight that is reminiscent of retro motorcycles. Handlebar is custom-made too and resembles the ones found on chopper bikes. If you look carefully, it doesn’t get ORVMs at a conventional spot. It doesn’t get bar-end mirrors either. Because it gets a yoke mounted single round ORVM. It is finished in chrome which looks very nice.Other ModsIt also gets a custom leather seat with Twist.Co badging, an analog speedo, round taillights, round turn indicators, custom fender, and a lot more. This custom scrambler also gets telescopic front suspension forks and twin shock absorbers at the rear. It also gets upsized spoked wheels with 19” at front and 18” at the rear which looks a lot better than the stock wheels.Yamaha SR150 ScramblerBeautification is not the only brief that Twist.Co got from their client. Engine is thoroughly cleaned and now looks like it came straight out of the factory. It also gets a new racing-spec carburetor from NIBBI along with a red-coloured choke switch. Rear subframe is also custom, though.Yamaha SR150 Scrambler gets Taiwan-made knobby tyres by Duro. Looking at the finished bike, it looks anything but a Taiwan-spec commuter SR150. With looks like this, it is sure to turn a lot of heads.Source More

    2023 Yamaha FZ15 Facelift Unveiled – Can Run On Petrol, Ethanol

    Running motorcycles on Ethanol is a lot cleaner and also a lot more economical and also ecologically friendly2023 Yamaha FZ15 FaceliftEven though you can’t create fuel-grade pure Ethanol at your house. The idea still holds true. Rather than pumping more and more crude oil that might sway the ecological and geological system that this earth is, we can make our own fuel from agricultural crops. This sustainable fuel is also beneficial for the growth of agricultural sector.The wastes of produce are let to decompose with yeast and other microbes and due to fermentation, Ethanol is created. But you can’t just take Ethanol and put it in your vehicle that was designed to run on petroleum products like petrol and diesel. With high price tags of electric vehicles and not so many advances made in solar and hydrogen fields, Ethanol sounds feasible for developing countries like India, Brazil and the likes.2023 Yamaha FZ15 FaceliftHonda has always been hot for this flex fuel idea where an engine is designed to run on both fuels. Honda has been pioneering flex fuel tech for over a decade now. Brazil gets a Honda CG 160 Titan motorcycle in Brazil which can run on both petrol and ethanol. But emissions norms for India are in keeping with BS6 / Euro 5 levels. Whereas emission norms in Brazil are less than Euro 4 levels. This makes it easier to implement flex-fuel technology in the South American country.Now Yamaha has stepped into the arena in Brazil with 2023 Fazer FZ15 facelift. Brazil-spec FZ15 comes with a slightly updated design that is also likely to make it to India. But both displace the same 149cc. While Brazil-spec motor can run on both petrol and ethanol. This engine develops 12.2bhp with both fuels and develops 12.7Nm of torque.2023 Yamaha FZ15 FaceliftThis engine’s power and torque figures are mostly similar to India-spec FZ V3 which produces 12.4bhp and 13.3Nm. Also, cycle parts are mostly the same too. Brazil gets the same suspension, braking components, 17” alloy wheels, and probably the 5-speed gearbox too. But Brazil-spec 2023 Yamaha FZ15 Facelift gets some new things that FZ V3 in India doesn’t.Design Changes & ComponentryThe most impressive part that Brazilian FZ gets is Pirelli’s Diablo Rosso 2, which is offered as standard. Other changes include a new headlight assembly unit that seems to be inspired by the FZ25 that we have in India. FZ15 now gets a projector unit along with twin LED DRLs flanking the projector that looks very handsome.Rest of its design is kept intact, though. It still gets the same body panels, rear section, seats, fuel tank and everything. One design change that I wholeheartedly welcome is a black finish on the trim around its fake air vents situated on its muscular fuel tank shrouds. Earlier it was chrome and looked absolutely atrocious and gaudy.2023 Yamaha FZ15 FaceliftEven though Yamaha FZ15 ethanol that could run on both fuels is less likely to make it to India, the design changes are highly likely to make it to India. We can expect a refresh of FZ V3 by the end of this year and receive the same projector headlight assembly as Brazilian-spec FZ15. When launched, it will lock horns with Pulsar 150 and the likes.

    Yamaha R3 And R7 Get Updated With New Colours – India Launch ?

    Yamaha R3 used to be sold in India with BS4 engine and couldn’t make the switch over to BS6 emission norms2023 Yamaha R3 New ColourYamaha India used to offer big bikes with high-capacity engines before. We used to get a lot of premium and enthusiast motorcycles of various genres and price segments. But now, the most expensive bike Yamaha sells in India is the 150cc YZF-R15M V4. At Rs.1.8 lakh (ex-sh), it is in no way justified for its ridiculous pricing.We can’t tell you why Yamaha’s big bikes are not on sale in India currently. But what we can tell you is that Yamaha seems to be making a comeback. We understand that since the launch of Royal Enfield 650 twins, 500cc+ segment is kinda one sided owing to their outstanding value. But there is a place for sporty Japs too.2023 Yamaha R3 & R7 Gets New ColoursEven though Yamaha’s higher-capacity YZF-R bikes are not offered in India, they are in huge demand in North American, European and even South East Asian markets too. Especially the liter-class R1. In America, JDM culture has been evolving at a rapid pace and Japanese motorcycles are gaining popularity too. So, Yamaha has introduced new colours for YZF-R7 and YZF-R3 in America.Yamaha R3 has been one of the favourites of supersport machine enthusiasts in India. It offered a decent bang for the buck and competed with the Kawasaki Ninja 300 which started this segment, to begin with. After it was discontinued due to stricter emission norms, it was due for a comeback. But that has not happened yet. New R3 India launch is expected by Diwali this year.2023 Yamaha R3 New ColourIn USA, R3 now gets a glossy Phantom Purple colour shade that looks outstanding. Looks wise, new R3 gets an aerodynamic shape and sharp aesthetics, largely inspired by MotoGP YZR-M1. It gets twin LED headlights, a central air duct for instant engine cooling, a compact, yet functional windscreen, RVMs and turn indicators mounted on fairing, a sporty fuel tank, sporty seats and an upswept exhaust. R3 is powered by a 321cc liquid-cooled DOHC twin-cylinder engine that generates 40.4 bhp and 29.4 Nm of torque. It gets a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch.New Yamaha R7 ColourYamaha R7 is the successor of the mighty and beloved R6. R7 is a little disappointing when directly compared to R6. We say this because the R6 had a screamer of a 4-cylinder engine. It had the perfect ratio of capacity to cylinder count ensuring the best of both touring and also sporty track days. But R7 is just a twin-cylinder and can’t match the outright manic performance of a 4-cylinder.So, while R7 loses on raw performance, it also loses weight as twin-cylinder engines are generally lighter. For America, Yamaha has added Intensity White colour that is jaw-dropping in terms of appeal. There’s something about white colour that tickles the fancy of buyers. Even BMW charges Rs. 20,000 more for a white-coloured Apache RR 310.New Yamaha R7 White ColourIntensity White also gets red coloured wheels that just add more drama to the machine. Yamaha is expected to bring this R7 to our shores too. But that might happen in 2023. While R3 may launch in India around Diwali. When launched, we hope Yamaha offers these colours at least as an option. More
