Yamaha RX100 Reportedly Making a Comeback in India in New Avatar

Yamaha is considering relaunching its iconic RX100 model, albeit with a larger engine. The new bike, carrying the RX nomenclature, may omit the “100” from its name due to its larger 225.9 cc engine capacity. According to sources, the revamped model is anticipated to deliver an impressive power output of 20.1 bhp and peak torque of 19.93 Nm.

It is expected that the successor to the RX100 will retain some design elements from its predecessor. Reports suggest that the bike could be priced in the range of Rs 1.25 lakh to Rs 1.50 lakh.

Yamaha has however not confirmed anything about it yet.

This is not the first time that such a report has surfaced.

In 2022 too, there were reports about the Yamaha RX100’s successor.

Then Yamaha India President Ishin Chihana stated that the RX100 would make a reappearance. He had then said that the RX100 would keep its current moniker. There will be no other motorcycle to take its place.

This is done on purpose since the firm intends to reintroduce this emblem.

This bike, which was popular from 1980 until recently, was recognized for its speed. However, the company discontinued this bike a few years ago, and it is now being reintroduced.

Yamaha used to make the two-stroke motorcycle from 1985 to 1996. Thereafter it introduced various iterations of it till 2005.
