Yamaha RX 100 Blue shade modified Edition | video

Meet Yamaha RX 100 Blue Edition: RX100 can be still seen running around the town with its unique exhaust note. The immense popularity attached to 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.

This RX100 comes with dual projector headlight supporting round headlight, multiple spoke chrome and black alloy wheels and an impressive belly pan with a raised design for impressive looks. 

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.

The CKD model was then followed by the 11.8 bhp (8.8 kW), 132cc (8.1 cu in) RXG, with a taller primary and secondary reduction. It had the same lightened flywheel from the RX 100 that causes a jerky ride. It was replaced by the manufacturer by a heavier flywheel the following year. Then came the RXZ in 1997, with a new chassis and a shorter wheelbase with the same primary reduction ratio as the RX100 but with a taller final reduction.

The Yamaha RX100 was powered by a 98-cc, single-cylinder, two-stroke engine that produced a maximum power of 11 bhp at 7,500 RPM and a peak torque of 10.39 Nm at 6,500 RPM. The engine came mated to a four-speed transmission. The RX100 has a kerb weight of just 103 KGs. The low weight plays a key role in the strong acceleration that this motorcycle offers. We don’t know if the RX100 you see in the video carries any performance updates. However, we must say that it’s the most well restored Yamaha RX100 we’ve ever seen.

The original spoke wheels have been replaced with multi-spoke alloys. The chrome-finished front fender has made way for a body-coloured plastic unit. There’s also a body-colored engine cowl with Yamaha decals. The biggest highlight, however, is the custom headlamp that carries LED DRLs and projector units. Other than these modifications, this RX100 remains true to the original motorcycle. We feel that these changes come together pretty well to infuse a touch of modern-ness to the ageing design.
