Experience the difference, feel superiority in your hands, and ride above the rest.
155cc Fuel-injected engine (Upgraded Feature)
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.
Variable Valve Actuation (VVA)
Allows smooth riding in both low rpm range and at high speeds. There are two cams that drive thei ntake 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.
Exhaust system layout
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.
Assist & Slipper Clutch (A&S)
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.
A 6-speed transmission is adopted to reduce the feeling of a busy engine at higher rpm, lower noise levels, and improve fuel economy.
New lightweight frame
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.
Sports Style seat
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 Sniper 155R edition features a special material and stitching.
The new Sniper155 has an SRP of 114,900 with Race Blu, Yellow Hornet, and Black Raven colors.
The new Sniper155R is designed for your high paced lifestyle in the city. This version comes in Matte Titan with an SRP of 120,900.
It’s now available at the YZONE, REV ZONES and Yamaha 3S Shops Nationwide.
