New Delhi: India Yamaha Motor has unveiled the Aerox S, the top-of-the-line variant of its popular Aerox 155 scooter. Retailing at ₹1,50,600 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and available exclusively in Silver and Racing Blue through Blue Square showrooms, the Aerox S boasts a host of features designed to elevate the urban riding experience.

Smart key for effortless starts

Gone are the days of fumbling for keys. The Aerox S introduces a revolutionary "Extra Smart Key" system. This keyless ignition technology uses proximity detection to identify the key fob. Riders simply need to turn a knob for a seamless and convenient start-up process. The system even features a helpful buzzer sound and flashing indicators for added ease of use.

Traction control for enhanced safety

Ensuring rider confidence in all conditions, the Aerox S incorporates a sophisticated traction control system. This technology prevents the rear wheel from losing traction on slippery surfaces, maximizing control and minimizing the risk of skidding.

Staying connected with Yamaha's Y-Connect app

The Aerox S embraces the digital age with Bluetooth connectivity. By pairing the scooter with the Y-Connect app, riders gain access to a range of valuable features, including call and message alerts, last parked location tracking, and even estimated maintenance schedules.

Convenience and performance

The Aerox S isn't all about high-tech features. It prioritizes rider comfort with a convenient front pocket featuring a 12V power socket for mobile charging. Additionally, the under-seat storage provides ample space for essentials with a capacity of 24.5 liters.

Powering the Aerox S is a tried-and-tested 155cc, liquid-cooled engine derived from Yamaha's renowned YZF-R15 and MT-15 motorcycles. This engine, tuned specifically for scooter application, delivers a maximum power output of 14.8bhp at 8,000rpm and peak torque of 13.9nm at 6,500rpm, ensuring a responsive and exhilarating ride.
