Yamaha RX 100 Overview

The Yamaha RX100 was undoubtedly one of the most iconic motorcycles to be launched in the country. This bike was responsible for single-handedly changing the way India travelled, while setting a benchmark for two-stroke bikes with its class-leading performance figures. Since its launch in 1985, it more or less ruled the two-wheeler market up until 1996, the year Yamaha discontinued it. The Japanese manufacturer was forced to pull the plug on the icon thanks to stringent emission norms enforced by the government, which spelled doom for all two-stroke vehicles on Indian roads.

The RX100 was the result of a radical experiment that Yamaha embarked on to compensate for the RD350’s lack of success in the Indian two-wheeler market. The result was something that even Yamaha couldn’t have anticipated, helping the RX100 became the legend that it is today. In fact, many enthusiasts are still willing to pay a bomb for a well-maintained example.

The RX100 was powered by an air-cooled, 98cc, single-cylinder motor that produced 11PS @ 7500rpm. The company also claimed a 0-60kmph time of 7.5 seconds. Its impeccable reliability and the affordability factor made the Yamaha RX100 a no brainer for enthusiasts back then. In fact, it was one of India’s best-selling two-stroke machines until Yamaha replaced it with the RX-G.

Now, rumours of Yamaha reviving the iconic name, albeit with a four-stroke engine, has given hope to many enthusiasts across the country. However, there is no official confirmation from Yamaha so far. So, until we get some concrete details, all we can do right now is to wait and hope for the RX100 to make a comeback and once again redefine the commuter segment in India.

Q. Is rx100 going to be manufactured again in India? If, So when We can expect to be in showrooms?
  • I have a 1991 model RX-100 of my own. Excellent bike, raw power and fun to drive. However this is a two stroke engine. World is worried about smoke emissions and hence government legislation has ensured that nobody can manufacture two stroke engines anymore. Your only option is to buy a pre 1991 bike and restore it. It might cost you almost like a new bike and take up to 6 months or more.Yamaha knows the public loves the RX monicker but is helpless. However you shall be pleased to know that sometime ago they made a small and compact motorcycle just about the size of the original and they put in a four-stroke 100cc motor and named it RX- Saluto 100cc. This bike is perfectly street legal to sell and any Yamaha dealer can procure this for you.
  • They actually have a new model called RX Saluto. Dimensions are small like the original. However it features a four stroke 100cc engine instead of the torque induced two stroke engine of the original. If you still want the original, you will have to buy an old model (1985-1991) and get it refurbished to original specs. If you get a got mechanic it is very much doable. No short cuts here. You need to invest your time plus your money if you need a good functional RX 100.
  • Government has no brains bro. 2T smoke just emits smoke but doesn't pollute the environment. The white smoke and black smoke which comes from the 4 strokes when the engine is not good in condition causes more pollution.

    I am the 5th owner of this bike. When I bought it, it was in poor overall shape. However by sheer dedicated effort, I contacted an expert in RX matters and slowly but surely managed to revive my bike to the original standards of performance. Then I met a mechanic who took on the job of painting my bike and then it was almost looking like a new bike. I would get frequent enquiries from many youngsters, asking if I was willing to sell my bike to them. Little did they know the blood, sweat and tears which had gone into restoring this bike. Now I hear that the central government wants to do away with all two stroke vehicles, no matter what their lineage. This is an injustice to the future generation, who will otherwise only see them in photos.
