The newly introduced moped gets the same 155cc engine that has been borrowed from the popular YZF R15 V3 motorcycle. The engine benefits from the VVA technology which as per the company helps in delivering a stronger top-end power delivery. This engine is known to deliver 17.5bhp of maximum power and 14.4Nm in the Y16ZR. For the record, the same engine delivers a similar 18.3bhp and 14.1Nm in the R15 motorcycle. The moped gets a six-speed transmission along with assist and slipper clutch.

The chances of its India launch are slim as there's no significant demand for sporty mopeds such as the Yamaha Y16ZR. On the other hand, products such as the Yamaha NMax 155 scooter do attract a lot of eyeballs on the Indian roads.
