Yamaha Aerox 155 shares R15’s engine; could become the most powerful scooter in India
Yamaha could show some interesting products at the upcoming 2018 Delhi Auto Expo and one of them could be the Aerox 155 premium scooter. An Aerox 155 premium scooter has been spotted at one of Yamaha’s service workshops without any camouflage. Considering the fact that Yamaha wants to grab a good chunk of the highly in demand scooter market of the country, this seems viable option.
Yamaha Aerox 155 comes with a stylish and upmarket design that grabs attention at the very first glimpse. In several South East Asian markets, this scooter is available already and it gets two different variants that are R-Version and S-Version. The particular model spotted in India is the S-Version and it wears a blue paint scheme.

Also, there will be ABS on offer enhancing safety of the scooter. Suspension duty is done by telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers.
