    The new Yamaha Sniper 155’s front fairing features sharper lines and edges versus the ones currently offered in the market — with the upper left and right portions stretched for better coverage. The plastic portion that holds the brand emblem now comes with three gaps, unlike the present version that only has one.

    Also, the new Yamaha Sniper 155 wears a Cyan-like body color option in addition to the Race Blu and Black Raven.

    Also, the Yamaha Sniper 155 will likely be fitted with the same four-stroke, four-valve single overhead cam engine with variable valve actuation technology that can dish out as much as 7.6 horsepower and 14.4 Newton-meters of torque.

    The engine will probably be paired with a six-speed transmission with assist and slipper clutch function. Hydraulic disc brakes, as seen in the photo, will provide the motorcycle’s stopping power.
