    HERE IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE YAMAHA F-155 (CONCEPT) WHICH WAS SHOWCASED DURING THE LAUNCH OF THE NEW 2021 YAMAHA EXCITER 155 VVA.

    Yamaha Vietnam ended the year with a bang last week with the launch of the much anticipated Yamaha Exciter 155 VVA. During the launch, alongside the production Exciter 155 VVA,  Yamaha Vietnam presented the Prototype F-155 moped concept developed by Yamaha Japan.

    Although it gets inspiration from the production Yamaha Exciter 150 and the new Exciter 155, the Yamaha F-155 concept is entirely different from the ground up. According to sources, Yamaha Japan spent around USD 100,000 (approximately SGD 135,000) in the development of this prototype. Given it is a moped prototype, it’s safe to say Yamaha has poured in a lot of cash in the development of this beast. So the question is, how special is it?

    Starting with the design, the F-155’s styling is sharp and aggressive. Upfront, it closely resembles the front fascia of the Yamaha Exciter, however, Yamaha has given the F-155 numerous added touches to make it more special.

    If you look closely,  the F-155 gets MotoGP inspired winglets upfront alongside a functional ram air intake in the centre.

    On the inside, the F-155 features a minimalist handlebar and instrument cluster which blend in well with the sharp look of the bike.

    To make it look more sporty Yamaha has added in a lot of ducts and vents on the side. The F-155 is a single-seater so it features a multilevel sporty seat.

    At the rear, the F-155 features R1 inspired rear cowl and taillight design. Moreover, to make it look more muscular, Yamaha has added in a twin underbelly exhaust system as well a set of sportier alloy wheels. We personally love how the orange accent complements the stealth matte grey base colour.

    On the inside, unlike the Yamaha Exciter, the F-155 is built around a delta box frame and gets an aluminium swingarm. In the case of the suspension, the F-155 features an upside-down fork at the front and a mono-shock at the rear. As for the brakes, the F-155 features a 2 pot calliper upfront and single-pot calliper at the rear.

    In the case of the engine, Yamaha hasn’t announced any details yet. However, sources claim the model uses a 155cc liquid-cooled engine that’s found on the new Exciter 155 VVA. However, thanks to the deltabox frame, the engine looks bigger and looks a lot more packed than usual.

    Would the F-155 ever make it into production? Well, most likely not. However, judging from the Exciter Concept 202X badge found on the side, we think Yamaha would most likely use the F-155 as the design benchmark for the next generation Exciter/Y15ZR/Sniper. We can't wait!

    Let us know what you think about this exciting development from Yamaha in the comments section below! With such an awesome looking bike, Yamaha might just have the edge over Honda when it comes to low-displacement runabouts unless Honda launches an exciting concept soon!
