RX100 can be still seen running around the town with its unique exhaust note. The immense popularity attached with this bike forced Yamaha to bring RX moniker to its youngest Saluto variant. As it was a different motorcycle than the original RX, sales never witnessed any special surge. Royal Enfield Classic 350 Gunmetal became popular in just a few days of its arrival and this typical RX100 Gunmetal Grey Edition seen here takes skin inspiration from the highest selling 350cc bike of India.
The motorcycle you see here comes with a completely restored body and certain aftermarket additions for added practicality and head-turning first look appeal. According to the modifier, the approximate cost of this modification is INR 55,000 (excluding the donor bike). It has been modified by ‘Durga Spray Painting Works’ for a client in Khammam, Telangana.
This RX100 comes with dual projector headlight supporting round headlight, multiple spoke chrome and black alloy wheels and impressive belly pan with a raised design for impressive looks. The fuel tank flaunts Gunmetal Grey with black pinstripes and Yamaha branding while side panels carry RX100 branding over the same shade.
An all-new seat with perfect space for two riders has been installed on the motorcycle. Most moving parts of the engine were retained from the original bike and no disc brake was added to keep originality intact. Yamaha RX100 is powered by a 98cc, single cylinder, two-stroke engine producing 11 BHP at 7500 rpm and 10.4 Nm at 6500 rpm.
This amount of power is expected from 125cc bikes of the present era but those also weight almost 20 kg over the wet weight of Yamaha RX100. That makes the power to weight ratio of RX100 comparable to performance spec 150cc bikes of India.
The top speed gets limited to 100 kmph due to lower overall output. This typical version here also gets Gunmetal Grey shade in the engine section. The motorcycle was built during 1985-1996, coming to a sudden end with the government bringing strict emission laws banning two-stroke bike sales in India.
