        The Yamaha 2021 Sniper 155 and Sniper 155 R have now arrived in the Philippines after several days of teaser posters and silhouette reveals. The new bikes were announced through a live event on Yamaha Motor Philippines’ official Facebook page, which featured ‘The Wonderboy’ Mckinley Kyle Paz, ‘The Chairman’ Masato Fernando, and former racing driver Marlon Stockinger.

        The first thing to note is the new 155cc engine, as implied by the updated Sniper 155 designation, which is claimed to be 17% more powerful than the outgoing 150cc mill. This 155cc, SOHC, single-cylinder engine can also be found in the YZF-R15, XSR155, MT-15, and the WR155.

        In Sniper 155 and Sniper 155 R trim, the Variable Valve Actuation (VVA)-equipped powerplant is capable of 17.7hp at 9,500rpm and 14.4Nm of torque at 8,000rpm. Mated to this engine is a six-speed manual transmission that now features an assist and slipper clutch for smoother, easier gear changes.

        Other technical updates include an all-new lightweight frame, a revised exhaust system layout, and individual ignition timing maps for each gear. A kill switch has been added to the right handlebar, while a passing light has been installed on the left. The new multifunction LCD instrument panel also includes a gear position indicator, VVA indicator, and a tachometer, among other nifty features.

        What sets the Sniper 155 R apart from the standard model is a 245mm front brake with a two-pot caliper compared to the standards single-piston unit, a 12V power socket for all your gadget charging needs, and a smart key system with keyless ignition and answer back functionality.
