2023 Yamaha XSR155 Review – My Attitude My Bike : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Bike” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “2023 Yamaha XSR155 Review”.

Yamaha Motor has introduced the new XSR155 in Thailand. The new Yamaha XSR 155 is a retro-styled offering based on the YZF-R15 V3.0 and shares the same underpinnings as the latter. The design language though is completely new, bringing a retro touch to the Japanese bike maker’s 155 cc line-up and is an extremely likeable addition to the range. Mechanically, the XSR155 carries over the Deltabox frame and other cycle parts and also the powertrain.

The styling and design though gives it a completely new look despite the sporty underpinnings. The design language is borrowed from the XSR900 and comes with the distinctive round LED headlamp, followed by the teardrop fuel tank and tan coloured ribbed single seat. The side panels covering the frame add a muscular touch to the motorcycle, while the circular LED taillight certainly stands out. The changes to the XSR155 also include a raised handlebar for a more comfortable riding position, while the wheelbase too is narrower by 5 mm over the R15. The ground clearance is also higher at 170 mm, while the XSR is heavier than the MT-15 by a kilogram at 134 kg (kerb), with the additions of an engine cowl and a heat shield on the exhaust.

2023 Yamaha XSR155 Review : Powertrain & Range

You may be only packing 155 ccs, but Yamaha’s Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology makes the bike come alive at higher RPMs. Past about 7,000 RPM, the engine sings thanks to the VVA technology baked in. Riders who are used to bigger-displacement motors will find the 155 Liquid-cooled SOHC engine a little bit lacking to get up to speed, however, for most riders who are used to smaller bikes, the XSR155 is a joy to wring out and reach the end of its rev range.

While most bikes will start to taper off at higher speeds, the XSR still has a noticeable pull even when in 4th gear. At 19.3 hp and 14.7 Nm of torque, the engine is rather powerful for its size, and it is pretty substantial. At lower speeds, the XSR is can be lugged thanks to the rich fueling and amazing slipper clutch, so you can either wring it out or putter around town and save some fuel. Speaking of the clutch, Yamaha’s slipper clutch is one of the highlights in terms of performance. The lever only requires a light squeeze to operate, and downshifting is smooth even in less experienced hands.

Paired with a 6-speed gearbox that is very easy to actuate and use, banging up and down the gears as well as finding neutral is a breeze. The feedback is very crispy, and the lever is sturdy.

As for handling, the bike features a more modern street-fighter stance with wide handlebars and slightly rear-set footpegs that are similar to many modern naked bikes like Yamaha’s very own MT-15. The seat is also relatively flat, which allows the rider to choke up on the tank or lean forward for a more aggressive riding stance. The pegs are still flat enough to give you a nice surface to stand on, which is apt if you want to turn this motorcycle into a scrambler or tracker down the line.

Out of the factory, Yamaha installed a set of IRC Trail Winners, which is a road-biased dual-sport tire that measures in at 110 mm in the front and 140 mm in the rear. In traffic and during in-city commutes, the bike handles exceptionally well given that it only has a wet weight of 134 kilograms making it very flickable. Though the rather tall seat height of 810 mm may pose a challenge for shorter riders, the tradeoff is a rather substantial ground clearance metric of 170mm. On a high note, disc brakes in the front and in the rear help bring the XSR155 to a stop smoothly, with great feel and modulation.

The rear brake is easy to modulate and the front has decent stopping power. With better tires, expect braking distance to get shorter and shorter.

Fuel efficiency is quite stellar in our opinion. With city rides clocking in a very respectable 39 kilometers per liter. Leisurely rides on the XSR could get you past 40km/L without traffic, but if you’re more liberal with the throttle, the number dibs down to about 35 km/L.

2022 Yamaha XSR155 Review : Performance

The 155cc engine features Yamaha’s VVA technology that promises to deliver an equal amount of power and torque across the rev range. It also gets a slipper clutch as standard with the six-speed gearbox.

The retro-styled motorcycle sports a round-shaped full LED headlamp at the front, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, and a flat ribbed tan coloured single-piece seat for the rider and pillion. The motorcycle also features a round-shaped full digital instrument cluster and a circular LED taillamp.

The XSR 155 uses the same delta box frame and it depends on a USD fork at the front and a monoshock setup at the rear. The motorcycle also uses die-cast aluminium swingarm and relies on a disc brake on both wheels to bring it to a halt. A dual-channel ABS system is also offered for the safety of the rider.

The XSR 155 has been fitted with a raised and wider handlebar while it also gets a narrower wheelbase and a slightly higher ground clearance compared to the MT-15. The good news is that the motorcycle is a just a kilogram heavier than the MT-15.

Our Opinion

XSR 155 is surely a beautiful retro look motorcycle and with the tried and tested engine of the R15 V3 and MT 15, it will be an exciting motorcycle. But, as we all know before an international spec Yamaha enters the Indian market it has to go through a lot of changes to keep its price low.

Currently, there are no other motorcycle like the XSR 155 in the entry-level segment, so basically Yamaha has no on to compete if they priced this little beauty wisely, it could be a success as it is already famous among the Indian audience.
