Yamaha Motor India launched the new Aerox 155 maxi-scooter in September this year. Upon launch, the Yamaha Aerox 155 was offered in three colour shades, including a MotoGP Edition. But now, the company has introduced one more colour scheme for this sporty gearless scooter. The Yamaha Aerox 155 is now available in India in a new Metallic Black colour shade too. Its other colour variants include Racing Blue, Grey Vermillion, and Monster Energy MotoGP Edition.
What’s further interesting is the fact that the Japanese two-wheeler maker isn’t charging any premium for this new colour shade. All the standard colour variants of the Yamaha Aerox 155 are priced at Rs 1,29,000, while the Monster Energy MotoGP Edition costs Rs 1,500 extra and is priced at Rs 1,30,500, all prices ex-showroom Delhi. Apart from the introduction of this new colour scheme, the rest of the bits on this maxi-scooter remain the same as before. 100w Electric Inwheel Motor
