In fact, this model has been a constant in both local and international racing scene. In this regard, the Yamaha Sniper 155 has an edge over its market competitors.

    The Sniper 155 is available in Standard variant which is priced at Php 120,400 and R variant with a price tag of Php, 126,900.

  • Design

    The overall styling of the Yamaha Sniper 155 is inspired by the brand’s flagship sport bike, the YZF-R1. The low beam light is mounted to the handlebar assembly which allows the headlight to shine in the same direction as the handlebars, while the high beams are built into the body. This layout is a first for Yamaha and gives the high beams excellent dispersion. The new designed rear light is consistent with Yamaha’s R-Series styling cues.


    The full LCD multi-function instrument panel displays a speedometer, tachometer, gear indicator, VVA indicator, and other information in a compact arrangement. The angle of the panel itself has also been optimized to suit the riding position for better readability.

  • Powertrain


    The engine of the Yamaha Sniper 155 is a liquid-cooled 155cc SOHC 4-valve fuel-injected with model specific settings. It also has a 4.6-liter air cleaner box resonator with optimized specifications. Its ample volume contributes to linear response when the throttle is opened and closed. These result in strong acceleration from a stop and excellent performance at high speeds.


    For the Sniper 155 a 6-speed transmission is adopted to reduce the feeling of a busy engine at higher rpm, lower noise levels, and improve fuel economy. Yamaha also added in a slipper and assist clutch to reduce lever load, ease the machine’s behavior during downshifts and contribute to a more comfortable ride. It is comprised of an assist cam and a slipper cam, and is the same system used in performance bikes like the YZF-R1 and YZF-R15.

    The Sniper 155 also has Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) which allows smooth riding in both low rpm range and at high speeds. There are two cams that drive the intake valves: one for the low and mid-rpm and one for high rpm. These are switched depending on riding conditions. The intake valves used at high rpm are open longer, increasing intake efficiency and raising the overall performance.

    The Sniper 155’s VVA also has individual ignition timing for each gear. This feature efficiently draws out the power of the VVA-equipped engine. A first for a Yamaha moped. The maps switch when the VVA system is active or inactive and there are separate maps for low speeds and high speeds. This makes the engine easy to use when in gear at low speeds, but also provides lasting pull at higher speeds.

    Both the exhaust pipe and muffler of the Sniper 155 are designed for power output across the entire rpm range, but to also reduce noise. To quicken catalyzation in the catalytic converter, it is positioned closer to the tail end of the exhaust pipe inside the muffler to better use the high temperature of the exiting exhaust.

  • Ride & Handling

    While technically an underbone motorcycle, the Sniper 155 uses a newly designed backbone frame with an excellent balance of strength and rigidity is adopted to achieve both a feeling of stability at mid- to high-range speeds and maneuverability in tight, low-speed maneuvers.

    The seat offers a good grip, is slip-resistant and provides excellent ride comfort. The shape of the area that contacts the rider’s inner thighs has been carefully shaped and offers easy leg reach to the ground. The Sniper 155R edition features a special material and stitching.

  • Engine & Fuel Consumption

    The large 5.4-liter fuel tank of the Sniper 155, in tandem with the fuel-efficient engine, allows you to ride farther and longer between fill ups.

  • Braking & Safety

    The Sniper 155 gets disc brakes on both ends but the R variant’s front brake employs a 245 mm disc to ensure excellent stopping power.

    The R version also features a Smart Key system. When the rider carries the Smart Key, the machine detects the rider and allows the engine to be started with a simple turn of the knob. It also has an answer-back function to help find its current position and is equipped with an immobilizer for theft deterrent.

  • Summary

    The Sniper 155 is a sport underbone that draws inspiration from race bikes in Yamaha’s stable. It offers performance for spirited riding but still gives consideration to practicality and comfort. Its rider-friendly ergonomics and operation makes the Sniper 155 a viable option for a wider range of buyers who enjoy riding at a brisk pace.

    The full manual transmission and clutch assist feature on the Sniper 155 effectively eliminates the jerky experience in most underbones during gear shifts. While it might not be the most thrifty option in its category, the Sniper 155 makes up the lesser miles per liter with more smiles per liter.
