Yamaha recently announced that the new Yamaha RX100 would go on sale in India and will be marketed to consumers as a motorcycle with a neo-retro aesthetic. The new-gen Yamaha RX100 will provide purchasers with a significantly enhanced package and be positioned as one of the cheapest bikes in the brand’s lineup.
The new Yamaha RX100 will continue to provide a small and durable package for purchasers searching for a reliable commuter and is likely to be supplied with a bigger and more potent fuel-injected petrol engine. It will also have electric starts, LED DRLs, and a semi-digital instrument panel.
It will have an improved suspension system and be built on a new basis. According to what we know, the bike will have twin shock absorbers at the back and telescopic forks up front. It will also have wire-spoke wheels. The front disc brakes and the rear drum brakes will likely be in charge of stopping the vehicle.
According to reports, the bike would likely have the same 125 cc engine available with many of its scooters in the Indian market. The new RX100, which has a larger 150cc engine that produces superior power output ratings, may be available from the brand. When it is introduced in India, this new motorcycle will likely compete with models like the TVS Raider 125.
Although Yamaha has yet to confirm the new RX100’s launch date in India, it is anticipated that it will be unveiled in late 2023 or early 2024. The bike will likely have a starting price of between Rs. 1.25 and 1.5 lack (ex-showroom) and would be among the nation’s most reasonably priced Yamaha models.
The Japanese automaker also plans soon to introduce a new electric scooter to the market to compete with competitors like the TVS iQube, Ather 450x, Ola S1 Pro, and the future Honda electric scooter.
