At the heart of the scooter sits a new Aerox 155-derived 155cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine which gets Yamaha's patented Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology. While the company hasn't yet made official claims on the output of this engine, but expect the power and torque to remain the same at 15PS and 13.9Nm. The company though claims to have optimized fuel efficiency to 44.9kmpl against the previous model’s 36.8kmpl.
The scooter makes use of a new frame which has enabled the two-wheeler maker to tweak the overall dimensions as per the requirements. The seat used on the new scooter is flatter than the Aerox and the seat height has risen from 805mm to 815mm on the Force 2.0.
Some of the key features of the scooter include its 5.1-inch LCD cluster that though lacks a connectivity option. Other highlights also include its dual-channel ABS.
It may not be launched in the Indian market anytime soon.
