2023 Yamaha Crosser 150cc motorbike launched | Autocar India

Written by Ravi Kapoor

Yamaha has launched the up to date Crosser in Brazil, and the explanation this piques our curiosity is as a result of it’s based mostly on the Yamaha FZ-Fi platform that’s on sale in India. Whereas it doesn’t indicate that Yamaha India goes to launch the motorbike right here within the close to future, it positive is value looking.

Beginning with the design, the Crosser appears each bit like a twin sport motorbike and the LED projector headlight is akin to what we’ve seen in different 150cc Yamaha bikes just like the FZ25 and MT-15. The headlight is surrounded by an LED Daytime Working Mild, whereas the sharp beak is positioned proper beneath. The 12-litre gasoline tank and tail part appears to attract inspiration from Yamaha’s off-road bikes and the general design appears purposeful.

The bike will get a full-digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity, which is once more just like the one seen within the Indian FZ, besides that it will get a gear place indicator as nicely. There’s a nifty charging socket as nicely, positioned subsequent to the ignition slot.

The ergonomics appear to be just about upright, though the seat peak, at 845mm, is on the taller aspect – 20mm greater than that of the Hero Xpulse 200 4V. 

Powering the Yamaha crosser is a 12.4hp, 12.7Nm, 149cc, air-cooled single-cylinder engine that’s paired with a five-speed gearbox. Whereas the bore/stroke and energy figures are similar to the engine within the FZ-Fi and FZ-X in India, the Crosser’s engine makes barely much less torque.

The bike is suspended by a telescopic fork with 180mm journey and a monoshock with 160mm journey. The bike runs on tube kind wire-spoke wheels and will get disc brakes on the entrance and rear with single-channel ABS. The motorbike suggestions the scales at 137kg. 

The Yamaha Crosser isn’t on the playing cards for India, however wouldn’t it’s good to see one other 150cc dual-sport on sale right here, particularly for the reason that Hero Impulse is not accessible? Tell us within the feedback.
