        More excitement awaits the Asian region as Yamaha unveils the new Exciter 155 VVA, known as the Sniper 155 in the Philippines, for the Vietnamese market. This sport underbone is now powered by a 155cc, single-cylinder, SOHC engine that boasts Variable Valve Actuation technology.

        Capable of producing 17.7hp at 9,500rpm and 14.4Nm of torque at 8,000rpm, the new powerplant is mated to a six-speed manual transmission and now gets an assist and slipper clutch. The Sniper shares the same engine with the other 155cc bikes in Yamaha’s lineup: the XSR155, the MT-15, the R15, the WR155, and even the Mio variants.

        Located underneath the sporty two-step seat is a 5.4-liter fuel tank which is larger than the previous model’s 4.2-liter. In terms of styling, the Sniper inherits the fascia and taillight designs from Yamaha’s flagship products, the R1 and R6 sportbikes, but with beefier body panels.

        Are you looking forward to seeing this here in the Philippines?
