Yamaha Motor Thailand has removed the wraps off the 2021 Aerox 155, which now features smartphone connectivity via a new LCD panel.
Yamaha’s Y-Connect app allows riders not only to view calls and messages, but also to receive information about service schedules, engine diagnosis, and the scooter’s most recent location. The same feature was made available in the Aerox that was unveiled in Indonesia last year.
This new model still draws power from the same 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that uses Yamaha’s Variable Valve Actuation technology. The fuel-efficient mill pumps out 15.1hp and 13.8Nm of torque.
The suspension is made up of telescopic forks up front and a pair of gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Stopping power is provided by an ABS-equipped disc brake and a drum brake fore and fact, respectively. The new Aerox also comes with hazard lights operated via a switch on the right handlebar.
Other standard features include a USB charger, keyless entry, and a 25-liter under-seat compartment big enough to accommodate a full-face helmet. The fuel-tank capacity has also been increased from 4.6 liters to 5.5 liters.
This model is known as the Yamaha Mio Aerox in the Philippines, and it’s logical to assume that before long, this latest iteration will land on our shores. After all, Thailand is the major supplier of Yamaha motorbikes in Southeast Asia. The only question is, when will it arrive?
