The Yamaha Aerox 155 can now be had with a new skin. Alongside the Grey and Blue colour options, Yamaha India will now retail the maxi-scooter in a new Black colour option as well.
Yamaha recently introduced the Aerox 155 maxi-scooter in India, which was available in two colour schemes – the Racing Blue and Grey Vermillion. Now, Yamaha has added one more colour into the mix. The Yamaha Aerox 155 can now be had in the Metallic Black colour scheme as well.
The new colour option has been added at no extra cost. The maxi-scooter continues to retail for Rs 1.29 lakh (ex-showroom).
The new colour scheme includes a mix of black and white, with graphics on the apron and rear cowl. The front mudguard is finished in gloss white.
Mechanically, there are no changes. The engine is the same 155cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor, also which powers the Yamaha R15 V4. The unit is, however, detuned to make only 14.8bhp at 8,000rpm and 13.9Nm at 6,500rpm. The features on offer are Bluetooth connectivity for the rider’s smartphone, an all-LED headlamp, and an all-digital instrument cluster.
The scooter mainly rivals the likes of the Aprilia SXR 160, which was the only maxi-scooter on sale in India until a few months ago. The Aerox 155 is now eating into Aprilia SXR 160’s market share, given the former's impressive price tag and enough equipment on offer.
The Aerox 155 has been attracting new customers lately, but the manufacturer is finding it difficult to deliver scooters to customers in some cities of India, which has resulted in a drastic increase in the waiting period.
