Yamaha has revealed the Crosser 150cc adventure motorcycle. The motorcycle is based on the Yamaha FZ-Fi, on sale in India. The adventure motorcycle segment is booming in India with lots of new options. The Hero Honda XPulse 200 is the entry-level adventure motorcycle in India. There are currently no 150cc adventure motorcycle options in the country. The last 150cc adventure motorcycle option was the Hero Honda Impulse. However, Yamaha India has no plans to launch the Crosser in India.

The Yamaha Crosser gets an upright stance and minimum body panels. The bike sports a LED-projector headlight similar to the Indian FZ-25 and MT-15. The motorcycle gets a sharp beak, and right above that, the LED DRLs surround the headlight. The overall silhouette of the bike draws inspiration from the off-road motorcycles by the brand. The high-mounted exhaust, tail section and the 12-litre fuel tank make it look purposeful.
