Yamaha Saluto RX launch
The Yamaha Saluto RX is powered by a 110 cc engine as compared to the Saluto’s 125 cc unit.

The key difference between the Saluto RX and the Saluto is the engine. Where the Saluto gets a 125 cc engine, the Saluto RX opts for a smaller, and more fuel efficient 110 cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine. Compared to the Saluto’s 78 km/l, the Saluto RX returns 82 km/l.

The Saluto RX gets a 4-speed gearbox, similar to the regular Saluto. The engine in the Saluto RX develops 7.5 PS at 7,000 rpm and 8.5 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm. It weighs 98 kg, as compared to the Saluto’s 112 kg, which Yamaha says is lightest in the segment. The fuel tank capacity is rated at 7.2 liters.
