Thoughts On Yamaha XSR 155.
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.
