Comparing Specifications of Yamaha LEXi LX 155 Versus Honda Vario 160, Which One is Superior? – After the Yamaha LEXi LX 155 was officially launched yesterday in Jakarta and Surabaya, now PT. RSSM (Roda Sakti Surya Megah), which is the main dealer for Yamaha Malang, also presents the MAXi scooter to the people of Malang.

It is very likely that this scooter will compete with the Honda Vario 160 which has recently received an update. Therefore, I will review the engine specifications and features that complement the two motorbikes and which one is superior?

Which is Superior?

After briefly looking at the engine data above, the Vario 160’s engine capacity is indeed larger, although it is only slightly different. What’s interesting is that the power produced is exactly the same, but on the LEXi LX 155 it can be achieved at lower rpm. And in terms of torque, the LEXi is superior by around 0.4 Nm and is achieved at lower rpm too.

Regarding piston size, the Vario 160 has a larger size at 60mm with a stroke of 55.5mm and the LEXi LX 155 measures 58mm with a longer stroke at 58.7mm. And the Vario 160 engine compression is higher at 12:1 compared to the LEXi LX 155 which has compression of 11.6:1.

Turning to the features section, both are equipped with a full-digital instrument panel, ABS braking system (for ABS type) and a flat deck. The difference is in the lighting sector, the Honda Vario 160 is superior because it is full LED up to the turn signal lights, while the Yamaha LEXi LX 155’s turn signal lights and number plate lights still use ordinary bulbs.

There is a drawer at the front complete with a USB type-A port for charging on the Vario 160, while the LEXi LX 155 is also available but it is still an electric power socket which requires adding another adapter. The trunk capacity of the Vario is 18 liters and the LEXi is 12.8 liters. The fuel tank capacity of the Vario 160 is larger at 5.5 liters and the LEXi LX 155 is 4.2 liters. However, LEXi is superior in connectivity to cellphones via the Y-Connect application and Vario cannot connect to cellphones.
