Yamaha Saluto Summary

The Saluto 125 is Yamaha’s premium commuter motorcycle positioned in the 125cc segment. It comes with Yamaha’s 'Blue Core' technology that is offered in the brand’s other models.

The Saluto looks more or less similar to the Yamaha SZ-R and gets all the basic features of a commuter bike. It features a front cowl with windscreen, 7.6-litre fuel tank, large horn and an electric starter. The Saluto 125 comes with telescopic forks up front and dual shocks at the rear. Braking is performed by drum brakes with an option of disc setup for the front. For the 2018 update, the motorcycle features Yamaha’s Unified Braking System (UBS) which partially applies the front brake simultaneously during complete application of the rear brake.

The Yamaha Saluto is powered by a 125cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, carburetted mill that produces 8.2bhp of power and 9.8Nm of torque. This motor comes mated to a four-speed gearbox. The motorcycle weighs 112kg and the Japanese maker says that with the new 'Blue Core' technology, the Saluto 125 is capable of delivering good fuel economy.

The motorcycle is offered in four colour shades with new graphics. The Yamaha Saluto competes with the Bajaj Discover 125, Hero Super Splendor and Honda CB Shine in India.

Yamaha Saluto Review

  • Good Things

    • Offers a comfortable riding position
    • The 125cc engine is smooth
    • Known for good mileage
  • Could be Better

    • The front brake is quite poor
    • Engine could be more refined
    • Instrument cluster looks boring

BikeWale's Take

The Yamaha Saluto offers good looks, great efficiency for a 125cc motorcycle and good quality components. Nevertheless, it could do with a better braking setup and a more refined engine.

      While the bike boasts overall commendable qualities, its seating position leaves something to be desired. Riders often find themselves slightly leaning forward, which can be uncomfortable. However, aside from this aspect, the bike performs well in all other aspects Fighter Attitude
      It's really nice, mostly the look of a sports and smooth bike and the average is best. Thank you, Yamaha, for providing the most special bike. It's a favorite because of the look and the price is also affordable for everyone. If my sports bike is the best bike for my budget, then go for it, and everyone thanks me for changing to the right feedback. My riding experience is very good; I use my bike every day to go to work.

      Amazing experience of Yamaha Saluto 125 CC

      34 weeks ago


      Shivam Kumar

      The Yamaha Saluto is an amazing Bike, Comfortable riding on this bike and an easy handling bike. Performance and Look both are amazing in this class bike. The servicing cost is very low. Only time-to-time servicing is done, No extra maintenance cost of this bike. If Yamaha did not close this bike sale, 100% of this bike would be a superb selling bike for Yamaha. Saluto is one of the best mileage, Low maintenance, and service cost riding performance bikes.
      Request to Yamaha Company please relaunch of Saluto again.

      Yamaha saluto 125 experience

      1 year ago


      Snehasis Ghosh Mozumder

      I am using it for approximately 1.5 years, its engine is superb, mileage is good till now, low oil consumption, brakes are awesome, self-start is great and the most likely thing is it looks it's modern looking plus under budget for many middle-class peoples, all riding lovers like me who can not afford above 80000/- could buy this.

      Bijoy Paul

      I purchase Yamaha Saluto 125 drum break on 06.07.2019. I review after 3 years of running 35000 km.
      Pros-
      Run 40 average speed in local road milage give 72 km/ltr.
      Sudden pickup is good compared with other bikes in the same range.
      Con:-
      Starting problem in winter season
      Halogen light is deemed after a few days.
      The main problem is the seat is very hard, not comfortable for long distances. Heavy use may be affected by the bone problems.

      Babu

      I trust yamaha engine so i purchased yamaha saluto 110cc. But my bike's engine has a main drawback. It not easy to start, petrol supply to engine is the problem. Engine sound is not good. Bike silencer looks like a old product. It's paint coating is destroyed.

      East or west yamaha is the best

      3 years ago


      Ajit Kumar Mala

      I purchased Yamaha Saluto 125 disc in first quarter of 2016. Since then I have driven it for nearly 3 lakh km because I am a salesman. Really this bike is value for money. I never faced any problem on the road because I really take care of it and take my bike for its regular servicing . I never use any low quality or duplicate parts or cheaper engine oil. Still i am getting mileage of 55 km/l in town and 50 to 70 km/l on highways depending on driving speed. I would like to thank the entire team of Yamaha for making this bike the best bike in 125 category.

      Tips for other riders

      Maintenance is the lifeline of your bike. Few tips to follow. 1. Start your bike in morning with kick instead of self starter and heat your bike for 3 to 5 minutes. 2. Change your Air filter at regular interval @ 3000-4000 kms. 3. Change both brake pads @ 9000 to 15000 kms. 4. Check your Air pressure regularly. 5. Change chain sprocket in 3000 to 40000 km 6. Change suspension oil @ every 70000 km.
