2022 Yamaha Crosser 150
The signature ADV highlights on the Design Crosser 150 such as a rough look with a long stance and minimal body panel. The Jade variant feels a little more rugged because of the long beak and forked guitar on the front. However, both variants use a smaller headlamp and a smaller flyscreen, a slight departure from the contemporary ADV. Other highlights include fuel tank extensions with air scoops, arrow head-shaped mirrors and a side-mounted high-slang exhaust. There are other notable references to the styling of the Crosser 150, including a longer handlebar, a higher saddle, and ground clearance. The Crosser 150 has a luggage mounting rack on the back that enhances its Turing certification. In terms of the 2022 Yamaha Crosser 150 Adv motorcycle launch feature and mobility features, the bike is quite basic and its semi-digital instrument console is the biggest highlight. Motorcycle illumination is taken care of by moderate bulb-type lighting. The Crosser 150 rides on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoke wheels that are paired with dual-purpose Metzler Turans tires. These units are said to provide great grip when running on off-road surfaces.

Although the suspension setup features a simple telescopic fork at the front and a mono-shock at the rear, there is plenty of travel offer for undulating surfaces on both ends. Each wheel supported by ABS is braked by a single disc brake to avoid skidding when stopping aggressively.
The Powertrain Specs Powering Crusher 150 is a 149cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 12.2 bhp of power and 12.74 Nm of peak torque. This unit is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The best part about this motor is that it can run on multiple types of fuels like petrol, ethanol or both which improves fuel efficiency. Considering the overall package of the 2022 Yamaha Crosser 150 Adv motorcycle launched, the Crosser 150 could indeed be a very good proposition in the Indian mass market if the price is right. However, Yamaha is unlikely to launch this entry-level ADV Tourer off our coast anytime soon. But given the growing popularity of adventure tours in India in recent years, Yamaha may want to tap into this category at some point in the future.
