Yamaha XSR series has always been based on the Yamaha MT series, and it is a more brand shaping series, targeted for a certain genre of bikers. Yamaha XSR 155 is a classic styled naked motorcycle which is based on the Yamaha R15 version 3 and Yamaha MT-15.
Yamaha XSR series is a lineup of Sports Heritage motorcycles as Japanese people like to call it, and the 155cc variant starts with the deltabox frame and the same suspension setup – upside down telescopic fork at front and monoshock suspension in the rear.

The engine produces 19 bhp of power and 14.7 NM of torque. The power is delivered through a 6-speed gearbox, and there is also a slipper clutch for rider assistance. The bike has alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and all the features of a premium motorcycle.
