Yamaha XSR155 was launched in Thailand.
It's a retro version of MT-15.
What do you think?

google translation of official web page

This bike reaches 141km/h(88mph). Fairly quick for 155 isn't this?
Acceleration looks good too.

I like it, its a simple looking thing with basic looking fittings.
The tech is there but its understated.
Gotta have a spin on the 900.

I like this style too. I like conventional long seat better than MT styling.
There's a rumor about 250/300 versions too.

*note : young machine sometimes writes wrong scoops*

I do hope 125, 250, and 300 versions coming too after this 155.

I like that. Thumbs Up

What's with 155cc though? Is that a Thai licence level?

It looks like bigger bikes = heavier tax in Thailand.

But big bikes market is getting little by little larger there I heard.

- - - edit - - -
There seems to be no classification in motorcycle license there.
Only cc restriction for Thai motorcycle licence is 110cc for those under 18 (15-17years old) according to my search result.

Looks pretty cool. I'd imagine they'd sleeve it down for the UK market if they decide to do it here.

I reckon it would have looked better/more retro with different wheels. Maybe like the curly cast alloys you got on LCs or the black with silver detail straight-spoked alloys they used to fit the the XS750.
