Cosmetically, the Yamaha Saluto RX draws inspiration from its bigger 125cc sibling, the Saluto. It gets the same conservative styling complete with a host of elegant paint schemes. The front of the Saluto RX features a bikini fairing with a curvy headlamp unit, while the tank is sculpted to give it a slightly muscular look. The instrument cluster is minimalistic and integrates an analogue speedometer and fuel gauge along with other basic functionalities.
The Yamaha Saluto RX is powered by a brand new 110cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine, delivering 7.4bhp and 8.5Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a four-speed constant mesh transmission. Given the Saluto RX’s target audience, Yamaha has developed the engine along the lines of BlueCore technology, to improve the efficiency without compromising on the performance. The Saluto RX tips the scales at just 98 kilograms, and this weight plays an important role in helping the bike deliver a company-claimed 82kmpl.
The Yamaha Saluto RX is available in four paint schemes - blue, black, matte black and red. It competes with other commuter motorcycles like the Hero Splendor iSmart 110, Mahindra Centuro, Honda CD 110 Dream and the recently launched TVS Victor.
