Following Honda, Yamaha is the next manufacturer to enter the entry-level adventure motorcycle market. Yamaha has introduced the 2022 Yamaha Crosser 150 ABS in Brazil, which will be the brand’s entry-level ADV offering. R$ 15,590 is the starting price (approx. INR 2.09 lakh).
The motorcycle will be offered in two models: the 150S and the 150Z, with the latter costing R$ 15,790. (approx. INR 2.12 lakh). Black Eclipse, Sports White, Competition Blue, and Dakar Sand are the four colour options available. The Crosser 150’s design is in keeping with today’s adventure motorcycles.
2022 Yamaha Crosser 150 – Design
Signature ADV features include a lofty posture and a rough appearance with sparse body panels on the Crosser 150. The Z model has a longer beak and fork gaiters, making it seem a little tougher. Both models, however, have a small headlamp and a small flyscreen, which is a slight divergence from modern ADVs.
Fuel tank extensions with air scoops, arrowhead-shaped mirrors, and a side-mounted high-slung exhaust are among the other highlights. When it comes to the style of the Crosser 150, it has a long handlebar, a high saddle, and plenty of ground clearance. The Crosser 150 also has a luggage rack at the back, which improves its touring capabilities.
2022 Yamaha Crosser 150 Features
The bike is rather simple in terms of features, with the semi-digital instrument console being the most notable feature. The motorcycle’s lighting is provided by simple bulb-type lighting. The Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose tyres are mounted on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoke wheels on the Crosser 150. When walking into off-road conditions, these units are reported to provide great grip.
While the suspension is modest, with telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock at the back, there is enough of travel on both ends for undulated ground. Each wheel has a single disc brake, which is assisted by ABS to prevent skidding while braking aggressively.
2022 Yamaha Crosser 150 Powertrain
A 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine produces 12.2 horsepower and 12.74 Nm of peak torque, powering the Crosser 150. This engine is mated to a five-speed transmission. The nicest part about this motor is that it can run on a variety of fuels, including gasoline, ethanol, or both, resulting in increased fuel economy.
