Known globally for the passion to put all of their engineering skills to develop models with notable results, Yamaha has always believed in offering custom made products by taking into account roads and traffic conditions. Being committed towards India, the launch of the unique 110 cc bike is a clear illustration of Yamaha’s endeavor to cater to the aspirations of young India.

    They announced during this launch that it has the soul of the RX. What nonsense
    Every Motorcycle has a tale to be told and there is no greater privilage in the life of a rider than to have truly understood what his Motorcycle stands to tell. Some of the greatest stories in the world are not written, they are experienced.

    One of the many reasons they say, "Four Wheels Move the Body, Two Wheels Move the Soul"

    Luckily,they added the name Saluto next to the RX or it would have tarnished the name of a legend.
