Does the new Aerox have what it takes to be the go-to performance scooter?
Yamaha pleasantly surprised scooter enthusiasts with the launch of the Aerox 155, a properly sporty scooter with the iconic Yamaha R15’s pedigree. It may be popular in the south-east Asian market. But can this uniquely designed performance scooter appeal to us Indian customers who are accustomed to conventionally styled, practical scooters?
Take a look at all the aspects of the Aerox 155 in these links:
The Yamaha Aerox 155 was launched on September 21 last year, alongside the Yamaha R15 V4. Check out the pricing and other details in our launch report.

We took the Yamaha Aerox 155 out for a spin and came back pleasantly surprised. However, there were certain aspects that weren’t our cup of tea. Check them all out in our review here.
The Yamaha Aerox 155 is by far the sportiest-looking scooter in the country. Its underbone styling can turn heads and how! Drool over the images here.
Yamaha offers a range of aesthetic and practicality-enhancing accessories for the Aerox 155. If you’re planning to spruce up your Aerox, take a detailed look at the accessory list here.
The Yamaha Aerox 155 was available in three snazzy colours at launch. You can take a clearer look at the colour variants here. The Japanese bikemaker also introduced a new Metallic Black colour in December last year.
The Yamaha Aerox 155 is a daring attempt from the Japanese company, especially in a scooter market where there aren’t many performance-oriented 150+cc scooters. Even though it’s a little expensive, at Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), it’s still the quickest scooter we’ve ever ridden that belies the genre it caters to. It’s perfect for those who want the sportiest scooter out there in the market, and for youngsters whose parents find the Yamaha R15 a little too aggressive and powerful. But if you’re looking for a good balance of sportiness and practicality, then you might want to take a look at the Race XP variant of the TVS NTorq 125, which is a much more affordable alternative.
