Power for the Saluto comes from a newly-developed air-cooled, single-cylinder 125 cc engine, which has been developed under the brand's Blue Core ideal. It features a more compact combustion chamber than Yamaha's previous engines in this segment. This gives the Saluto the title of the lightest motorcycle in its class, at a mere 112 kg.

Yamaha rates the engine for 8.3 PS at 7,000 rpm and 10.1 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm, matched to a 4-speed transmission. The Saluto is good for 78 km/l.
