Summary
Yamaha RX 135 was the star performer of its time, carrying a 5-speed gearbox and claiming a top speed of 110 kmph at that time. The 132 cc engine was 2-stroke, producing 14 BHP and 12.25 Nm of torque. Its 116 kg of lightweight body made it perform like a pocket rocket while mileage was never a strong point for the RX 135. It came with drum brakes on both ends while competition for the bike was simply ended as all of the two strokes were banned under strict emission norms by the government. Its performance makes it still better than most 150 cc bikes of the country.Yamaha RX135 is classic Indian legend that performed outstandingly during its time of sale. It was using a 132cc, single cylinder, 2-stroke engine, good for 12 BHP and 10 Nm of torque. Its light 106 kg of weight provided the bike with the best in class power to weight ratio. It came with an option between 4-speed and 5-speed gearbox and claimed a top speed of 110 kmph. It used 130 mm drum brake for both front and rear wheel. When Yamaha RX135 was being sold, there were very few options in the biking industry, limiting the competition to just Suzuki Shogun and other RX series bikes.
