After the successful sale of Yamaha Saluto, the Yamaha Saluto RX was unveiled. It was more fuel efficient and a lighter bike with the new, stunning BlueCore technology. Adding these extravagant features has just made the motor-enthusiast excited about its release. The RX is especially aimed at the younger generation of urban and rural areas. Although it has a few disadvantages like the vibration from the handlebars and the braking is not as smooth as it should be, but these can be overlooked since the overall features of the bike are extremely good. It is a model that should be considered while buying a bike in this price range. The bike is offered in five colours, which are- Gleaming Black, Dark Knight, Matte Black, Breezy Blue and Inspiring Red.
The following Yamaha Saluto Rx review talks about the in-depth overview of the bike:
Exteriors: The exteriors of the bike are quite simple, but the elegant headlamp along with the colour scheme adds a bit of design. The fuel tank looks like it has been sculpted to perfection. The perfectly padded seats are comfortable for long as well as short distances ride including the daily commute. The instrument cluster is kept minimalistic; it displays the analogue speedometer and fuel gauge along with other functions. The front suspension is a telescopic fork, and rear suspension is swingarm. The diamond chassis gives the bike perfect structure. The bike is designed in such a way that the exteriors complement the bike specifications perfectly. The kerb weight of the bike is only 98 kgs which makes the bike more efficient regarding daily commute.

The maximum power is seven bhp @ 7,000 rpm, and maximum torque is 8.50 Nm @ 4,500 rpm. The bike has four-speed manual transmission, chain drive along with a wet, multi-plate clutch and TCI (Transistor controlled ignition). The fuel type is petrol with a fuel tank capacity of 7.20 litres with a mileage of 82 kmpl which is even better than the Saluto. The front and rear brake type is drum. The self/kickstart continues to be a part of this bike. The Sporty 10-Spoke Aluminum Alloy wheels make the bike look extremely good and give excellent traction control even over rough terrains.
