    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.

  • Iconic bike

    "The Yamaha RX100 was a legendary Indian bike known for its power, simple handling, and iconic two-stroke engine sound. The RX100 was a very lightweight bike, weighing around 105 kg. It came in various colors throughout its production run. The RX100 had a simple yet sporty design with a round headlight, sculpted fuel tank, and sleek bodywork . The Yamaha RX100 was a fantastic motorcycle for its time, offering a thrilling ride, lightweight handling, and easy maintenance. Keep in mind the potential challenges of finding service and spare parts for a discontinued model."

  • Yamaha RX 100_old style with new technology

    I have owned my Yamaha RX 100 for over a year now and it has been quite the trip down memory lane. The bike's 98cc, 2 stroke engine really packs a punch, specially considering its lightweight frame. This iconic motorcycle revs up to about 7000 RPM and offers a surprisingly smooth ride, perfect for city commuting and occasional short escapes on the countryside roads.However, as thrilling as it is, the RX 100 does have its drawbacks primarily its age. Finding spare parts can be a hassle and the lack of modern features like disk brakes or an electric start, definitely makes it feel dated.
