8 first impressions after taking delivery of my Yamaha Aerox 155

Difficult to keep to the 40-50 km/h limit on the open road for the break-in period.

I’ve been following this thread for a while as I was looking for something that works like a motorcycle but has the characteristics of a scooter. After many permutation combinations, I finally made my decision and bought Aerox. Went to the Hebbal showroom in Bangalore on 10 Mar 23 just to inquire about the Aerox and there was a ready made one in stock in Racing Blue colour. What can I say, fell in love at first sight. Had requested a test drive but no test vehicle was available. There was a customer unit at the service center in the shade of gray and sat and felt the engine sound. Couldn’t drive it as it was a customer unit. Got ahead with booking the color Racing Blue with a delivery date of two working days. I feel like luck was on my side as the waiting time is around 1-2 months as confirmed by the SA.

On 03/13/23 the delivery of the Aerox came.

First Impression (in no particular order):

  1. It’s just fun to drive. I was able to flip this through Bangalore Hebbal traffic at 5pm with ease. Couldn’t feel the 126kg weight factor.
  2. It’s definitely an eye-catcher, especially this color Racing Blue.
  3. Somehow I seem to like the exhaust sound when throttled. It’s not a deep growl like Ntorq’s, but something that puts a smile on my face.
  4. No instruction manuals or instructions were provided upon delivery. Is that the case nowadays or did I miss it? Aerox owners please confirm.
  5. This might be a personal thought, but I’m used to holding the rear grab bar on a two-wheeler while pushing/reversing the bike out of a parking space. On the Aerox, the lack of a mounting bracket surprised me when I took it from the opposite direction. The deepening provided on the back takes some getting used to.
  6. It was found that after changing the brightness of the LCD backlight, the auto start/stop was not working. I didn’t pay much attention as it was getting dark and late. Will check again tomorrow. If others noticed, please comment.
  7. Difficult to keep to the 40-50 km/h limit on the open road for the break-in period. Will schedule a freeway trip over the weekend to see this beauty’s cruising capabilities.
  8. The rear suspension is pretty harsh and you need to be prepared when going over a bad road. You must do something about it. You’ll probably have to plan a set of RCB hangers in the near future.
