2022 Yamaha Aerox 155
Yamaha Aerox is a part of one-cylinder scooters made by Yamaha that launched on 1997, available in 50 ccs or 100 ccs for the European market, and 125 ccs or 155 ccs for the Southeast Asian market with several some different designs. Yamaha Aerox was first launched with a single-cylinder engine, liquid-cooled, 2-stroke.

Yamaha Aerox has long been used by the Yamaha MotoGP paddock bike team, but only entered and circulated widely in Indonesia in 2016. In addition to looking sporty, Yamaha Aerox is also famous as a scooter with powerful and agile power when manoeuvring. Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, who at that time joined the Yamaha Factory Racing Team, had used this scooter during MotoGP. Some that have been driven by the two drivers include the Aerox-R2007 Special Edition, the 2007 Aerox-R Race Replica, the Aerox-R Race Replica, and the 2012 Aerox-R GP Edition. All of these motors still use 2-stroke engines.
Small changes were made in 2003. The Aerox was named after the Aerox R and the 100 cc model was discontinued. The 2-stroke 50 cc model is updated with a new exhaust, tachometer, and a new type of ignition and CDI. In 2013, Yamaha launched a new modification type of Aerox with a completely design and the introduction of Aerox Naked and Aerox 4 (equipped with a 4-stroke engine).
