FEATURES

It has a liquid-cooled 155cc SOHC 4-valve fuel-injected engine with model specific settings. It also has a 4.6-liter air cleaner box resonator with optimized specifications. Its ample volume contributes to linear response when the throttle is opened and closed. These result in strong acceleration from a stop and excellent performance at high speeds.

Fuel-injected Engine

Allows smooth riding in both low rpm range and at high speeds. There are two cams that drive the intake valves: one for the low and mid-rpm and one for high rpm. These are switched between depending on riding conditions. The intake valves used at high rpm are open longer, increasing intake efficiency and raising the overall performance.

Variable Valve Actuation (VVA)

+
Image

This feature efficiently draws out the power of the VVA-equipped engine. A first for a Yamaha moped. The maps switch when the VVA system is active or inactive and there are separate maps for low speeds and high speeds. This makes the engine easy to use when in gear at low speeds, but also provides lasting pull at higher speeds.

This reduces clutch lever load, eases the machine’s behavior during downshifts and contributes to a more comfortable ride. It is comprised of an assist cam and a slipper cam, and is the same system used in models like the YZF-R1 and YZF-R15.

The low beam light is mounted to the handlebar assembly which allows the headlight to shine in the same direction as the handlebars, while the high beams are built into the body. This layout is a first for Yamaha and gives the high beams excellent dispersion.

The seat offers a good grip, is slip-resistant and provides excellent ride comfort. The shape of the area that contacts the rider’s inner thighs has been carefully shaped and offers easy leg reach to the ground. The Sniper155R edition features a special material and stitching.

Sports Style Seat

A newly designed backbone frame with an excellent balance of strength and rigidity is adopted to achieve both a feeling of stability at mid- to high-range speeds and maneuverability in tight, low-speed maneuvers.

A large 5.4-liter fuel tank in tandem with the fuel-efficient engine allows you to ride farther and longer.

Both the exhaust pipe and muffler are designed for power output across the entire rpm range, but to also reduce noise. To quicken catalyzation in the catalytic converter, it is positioned closer to the tail end of the exhaust pipe inside the muffler to better use the high temperature of the exiting exhaust.
