Yamaha Aerox 155 first test

The Aerox 155 has a highly intelligent multi-function key switch with buttons for accessing the under-seat storage or fuel filler cap. No need to struggle to turn the key wondering whether to push or pull. Speaking of the fuel filler cap, which is also conveniently located – the column on the floor. The under-seat storage has a capacity of 24.5 liters and Yamaha claims it can hold an XL size full-face helmet and a few other stuff. This is possible, as long as you keep the crown of your helmet facing down. Then there is also a compartment with a charger for the phone. Which will be a constraint for the bigger phones that have now become so mainstream.

The Aerox 155 is a feature rich scooter. As I mentioned before, this scooter receives LED lighting at both ends. Then there is a nice, well laid out LCD display which contains a bunch of information like tachometer, trip meters, VVA indicator, fuel / consumption gauge and battery status. Apart from that, the instrument cluster is also Bluetooth enabled, which displays incoming call / text notifications, app notifications and the phone’s battery status. And the Y-connect app enables a plethora of functions such as telephony, geolocation, malfunction notification, fuel consumption monitoring, “revs dashboard” – which provides engine telemetry on the go. screen of your smartphone. Despite all this, the Aerox 155 does not offer turn-by-turn navigation, a feature available in much more affordable scooters.

Yamaha Aerox 155 verdict

At Rs 1.29 lakh ex-showroom, the Aerox 155 doesn’t come cheap! But when you stop to think about what it brings to the table in terms of a sophisticated engine, a sorted chassis with stunning handling that can put some bikes to shame, a long list of features, and a brilliant overall riding experience, this price is starting to drop. make more sense. Now, in terms of rivals, the closest on paper is the Aprilia SXR 160 which costs around Rs 1.26 lakh. Would I recommend this over the Aprilia? I certainly think so. It makes more horsepower, is the better of the two and also has more kit for around Rs 4000 more. You are also supported by the extensive Yamaha dealer and service network. So win-win. Did the Yamaha Aerox 155 then become our favorite sports scooter? Maybe it is!
