One of the most important feature of the scooter is the addition of ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), but because this only has a front disc brake the ABS is only for the front wheel while the rear wheel gets conventional drum brake.
The scooter weighs 118 kg & under the belly it can carry only 5 litres of fuel. The scooter is equipped with a 5.8 inch LCD display speedometer. The speedometer is fully digital. Among the safety features it has smart lock key on the left brake & side stand indicator.
We are still to test the scooter so for the time being we don’t have any data about the mileage & performance of the scooter but what we can say is that the ABS version of Yamaha Aerox 155 price in Bangladesh 380,000 BDT.
Moped & Scooter are very popular in countries like Thailand, Indonesia & Vietnam. In India Honda Activa is the most sold two wheels for best part for the last 3 years.
