One of the most iconic Yamaha motorcycles in India has been the RX 100. The bike, in production from 1985 to 1996, was discontinued nearly 25 years ago.
However, it continues to enjoy fandom among motorcycles enthusiasts in the country. There is still excessive demand for it in the used two-wheeler market.
The resurgence of the RX 100 nameplate in India had gone unmentioned by Yamaha up until this year. However, the Japanese bikemaker is now set to unveil a modernised version of the bike while maintaining the classic design.
In a recent media interview, Eishin Chihana, Chairman of Yamaha India, informed Zigwheels that the company will soon release a new motorcycle bearing the RX 100 nameplate.
Furthermore, to maintain its reputation as a fast motorcycle, Yamaha may opt to launch the new RX100 with a larger four-stroke engine instead of the 100cc one that was previously on the iconic bike.
