    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.

    Yamaha Rx 100 is absolutely the most iconic and phenomenal bike and now it come in the modern avatar and this bike was love and family member for many indian. This bike gives class leading performance and is a very reliable bike that comes in the affordable pricing. The top speed of this bike is 110 kmph but the tubeless tyres are missing. It get a 10 litre of fuel tank and the seat of this bike is large and comfortable but the long rides is not good with this bike.

  • Classy, iconic and unique

    Commonly owned two wheeler model, the Yamaha Rx 100 comes with many options. The price is quite affordable i feel. It is quite versatile and has been built practically. The seat is extremely comfortable imparting a comfortable and seamless journey. The specifications are nice and it is well equipped with modern technology and designing which really turns head on the road. I really like the kind of rides that it provides.
