    My First bike was RX100 model 1994 same whine red colour.used for 5 years till the accident I had.
    haha! my first wheelie unintentionally was on a lambretta scootter!
    This link has quite an info about 2 Stroke Direct Injection Engine, including lubrication, scavenging avoidance, etc ...:-->

    Two-stroke engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (See Point 4 on this page- Direct Injection)

    This link has more detailed info about Orbital's DI Projects & their acceptance:-

    Why 2-Stroke Direct Injection is a Big Deal

    However, I think Bajaj did try a 2 Stroke bike, but RTC were not willing to register it in few states, as they thought that all 2 strokes don't comply with anti pollution norms :-->
    Rediff On The Net Business Interview / Rajiv Bajaj, vice-president, Bajaj Auto (Link of 2000, but yes the statement about 2 strokes is clear & relevant)


    Finally, I know I'm making some blind minded wishes, but if 2 Strokes come back anyhow, I'll be happy about everything I did here ... Amen!

    -the history of the RX 100 can be traced from the RX-king series of motorcycles sold in south east asia.

    - RD does not stand for race derived, it merely stands for Road, in yamaha nomenclature, like XD was for off road.

    - The RX135 was not a rebadged RXG, the RXG had a smaller exhaust port for better emission control, and it strangled the performance of the bike severely. The RX135 was a better breathing machine, hence more powerful also.

    - The indian RXZ also was based on the RX-King design, having no engineering similarity with the foreign RXZs.

    If anyone is searching for good condition re built/ restored RX100s, i have about 3-4 machines available. You can either buy them as is where is, and rebuild them. Or you can pick from the ones which have been rebuilt ( two of them, both having sleeved blocks)New blocks/crank/ parts etc are available, and bikes can be rebuilt to your requirements.

    - KTM Duke 200
    - Yamaha RXZ 5 speed
