- Yamaha XSR155 is a graceful-looking bike with decent performance. The introduction of its special version in Indonesia should aid in attracting more customers.
- If the model proves to be successful in the country, it might also make its way to India. Provided it is competitively priced, it will raise the competition in the two-wheeler segment on our shores.
The Yamaha XSR155 WGP 60th anniversary edition sits on a deltabox frame and has a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a flat-type seat with a ribbed pattern, an upswept exhaust, and a circular headlamp. The bike packs a digital instrument console, a full-LED setup for lighting, and rides on alloy wheels shod in dual-purpose tires. It can store 10.4-liter of fuel.

In terms of safety equipment, the Yamaha XSR155 WGP 60th anniversary edition is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with single-channel ABS for better handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by inverted telescopic forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
