The Sniper 155 is available in 3 colourways - Black, Blue, and Yellow
Now, in case you didn't know, the Sniper 155 is a high-performance moped. Well, mopeds (or kup chais as they are better known in Singapore) are used in Singapore for their functional purpose but they are quite popular in several other Asian markets like India, Malaysia, Vietnam, and more. The Sniper 155 has a machine price of around S$4,800 which makes it one of the more affordable runaround bikes here in Singapore!
Yamaha Sniper 155 borrows some styling cues from YZF R1, especially the twin LED headlamp setup. The moped also gets an angular front apron, side fairing, a step-up seat, ten-spoke alloy wheels, blacked-out mechanical bits, and an upswept exhaust canister. As for features, the moped gets a digital LCD panel, smart key system, 12V power point, hazard lamp, and LED taillights and indicators.
Yamaha Sniper 155 is propelled by R15 V3.0's 155 cc, liquid-cooled engine. This powerplant is available in combination with a six-speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch and generates 18 bhp with 14 Nm of peak torque. This is 1 bhp and 1 Nm less than the power available on the R15. However, the moped makes use of VVA (variable valve actuation) for linear power delivery. The suspension duties on the Sniper 155 are tended to by telescopic forks with a swingarm while braking force comes from the front and rear disc brakes.
If you're looking for a affordable motorcycle that is packed with the latest engine technology, simple maintenance upkeep and no-hassle riding, the Sniper 155 might just be the perfect choice for you!
