Don’t miss this chance to own a racing superstar. The new Yamaha Sniper 155 and 155R are out now.

After watching Yamaha Philippines Racing Team’s McKinley Kyle Paz, April King Mascardo and Gian Carlo Mauricio use the new Yamaha Sniper to dominate Motul MotoIR’s Underbone GP segment, we can now see it in the metal and take it for an actual spin on the road. 

It’s undebatable that the Yamaha Sniper 155 is a leader in the underbone segment, being the steed of choice for champion riders for its lightness,  speed and agility.  Now, fans can finally get their hands on the latest iterations of the underbone king.

The new Yamaha Sniper 155 and 155R were launched at Yamaha Motor Philippines’ FastFest at SM by the Bay last May 4 and 5.  MotoIR Championship racers McKinley Kyle Paz, April King Mascardo, and Gian Carlo Mauricio made an appearance at the event. They have had their careers shaped by the legacy of the Yamaha Sniper, and spoke fondly about their history with the machine and shared their excitement with the bike’s newest editions. 

Champion racers Paz, Mascardo and Mauricio were special guests at Yamaha Motor Philippines’ FastFest.


As a surprise treat for all in attendance, Yamaha debuted the original soundtrack of Yamaha Racing Philippines, named ‘Creating Champions’ by music artist and newest Yamaha Brand Ambassador, Nik Makino. 

The latest editions of the Yamaha Sniper 155 and 155R retain a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 155cc single-cylinder engine that has always delivered ‌ smooth and responsive performance.  The new bikes feature a sportier aesthetic, as well as upgraded tech–the new Sniper 155R is now equipped with ABS for better stopping control. The R also it retains its Smart Key System and 2-pot brake caliper.

The standard 155 edition keeps key features, including an Inverted LCD Panel, Assist & Slipper Clutch, and Variable Valve Actuation (VVA), which allows smooth riding at both low and high RPMs.
