Yamaha XSR 155 Walk around and First Impression, Bangladesh


Hello everyone this is the all new Yamaha
XSR 2019 which is also known as the sports heritage. Yamaha gave this motorcycle an entirely
classic look from scratch. starting from tank to the seat I can see the theme has been maintained
and the best part is the meter console of this motorcycle, which is a fully digital
console while maintaining the classic theme. Also, the tail and the headlamp has been made
with the classic theme. We can also see that they have use led headlamp. Although the exhaust looks a little bulky but it goes very well with the theme. Moving towards the engine
bay, here I can see that they have used the Yamaha r15 version 3 engine which is powered
by 155 4 valve liquid cooling SOHC engine also the Horse power and torque is equivalent
to the R15 v3 and the MT 15. Another thing that I have noticed is the radiator, usually
Yamaha uses a silver color radiator but this one has a black one. Moving towards the forks,
they have used the USD(Upside down) forks for a premium ride experience.They have given
IRC as stock tires. The motorcycle has been imported in 4 different color variants, the
one that I am showing is red and white here I can see the gun metal color and matt olive
color which is also known as Army green color. Lastly there’s the matt black edition. Usually
we observe that the model name of the motorcycle is mostly highlighted but here Yamaha has
just used an emblem of the XSR to give a classic look beside that the aluminium angle looks
very attractive is has a good sense of tuning with the overall design. Me having a height
of 6’1, I thought the sitting position would be upright or downright but I’m feeling very
comfortable and doesn’t feels that I will have any issues for regular commute and highway
cruise. The sit is kind of on the stiffer side given the classic motorcycle, this is
understandable. The handlebar feels like a mixture of both a commuter and a cruise motorcycle.
For the first time in Bangladesh this has been imported in 4 color variants and the
stock is available on a first come first serve basis. The importer has set a price tag of
5.25 lacs
