Here is what our experts feel about Saluto RX
Yamaha Saluto RX is an entry-level commuter motorcycle from Yamaha. It takes on the likes of Hero’s Splendor and Passion, Honda’s Livo and Dream series as well as the TVS Victor. When the bike was about to launch, there were rumours flying all over about the relaunch of the Yamaha RX 100. Thankfully, Yamaha named this bike appropriately as it pays homage to the original cult bike. Saluto is a no-nonsense commuter bike with competitive pricing in its segment. Yamaha Saluto RX is available in only one variant at a price of Rs.48,221. When compared to its competitors like the TVS Victor, Honda Dream Yuga, and Hero Passion X Pro, Saluto RX is considerably cheaper and coming from one of the most reliable brands further raise the reliability quotient of the bike.
Saluto RX is one of the best looking bikes in its segment, especially in its Matte Black avatar. Other colours available for the motorcycle are Darknight, Breezy Blue, Gleaming Black and Inspiring Red. Saluto RX does carry design cues from its elder sibling, Saluto 125. You will find similarly styled headlamps with a contrasting black visor that looks really good. Shiny graphics decals on the sides really complement the matte paint job on the bike. The tank is well sculpted and carries the Yamaha logo which is very prominent. Black section running across the top of the tank gives it a very unique look. Side panels along with the rear panels are neatly laid out which highly underscores the commuter character of this motorcycle. Tail light looks very sharp and sculpted on the lines of the rear panel. The seat is very long and comfortable which is a good fit even for riders with larger physique. Rear grab-bar looks very simple but does its job very well by allowing good grip regardless of hand placement. All black exhaust with a black safety plate on it gives it a rather decent look. 10-spoke cast aluminium wheels not only look good but being very light contributes to agile handling characteristics. Being a commuter, the analogue instrument panel has been kept very basic with readouts like speedometer, odometer, and a fuel gauge.
Powering this nimble commuter is an air-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC, 110cc, 2-valve single-cylinder engine that produces maximum power of 7.48PS at 7,000rpm and a peak torque of 8.5Nm. Saluto RX features an all-new Blue Core BSIV compliant engine with optimum fuel efficiency that is mated to a smooth 4-speed gearbox. The Saluto RX comes with a best-in-class mileage of 82kmpl, which is a result of its lightweight. Similar to the legendary RX 100, the Saluto RX leverages its light weight to extract maximum power to speed output and gives a top speed of an amazing 95kmph. Compared to the likes of Hero Passion Pro 110 or the newly launched TVS Radeon, fuel tank capacity on the Saluto RX feels a bit low at 7.2 litres.
Saluto RX's lightweight coupled with the optimized positioning of the centre of gravity makes it much easier to park the bike, manoeuvre it on sloped roads, and push-walk it. The upright seating posture along with the long seat which has plenty of cushioning provides better comfort when riding with a pillion. As it is a basic commuter, it doesn’t come with disc brake even as an option, but rather with drum brakes and has a decent stopping power. The suspension is handled by the telescopic suspension with travel is 120mm at the front and a rear preload adjust swingarm suspension with 100mm of travel. This suspension setup allows for greater usability for carrying loads and also provides good comfort without bottoming out even when riding on rough roads. The grip on the road is provided by 2.75-17 41P section tyre on the front, while the rear gets a 3.00-17 50P section tyre that covers the 17-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels.
Now as the bike is BSIV compliant, it features the Automatic Headlight On (AHO) system. With this system, as soon as the bike is turned on the headlight lights up to make the bike visible and safe to the oncoming traffic on the road.
