Yamaha RX 135 4-Speed Review

15 Feb, 2019 02:06 PM

Overview

Yamaha RX135 is classic Indian legend that performed outstandingly during its time of sale. It is lightweight and has a low ride height, which makes it quite comfortable to drive. This commuter bike was quite popular despite its low mileage. The RX135 was powered by a 132cc single cylinder 2-stroke engine that churns out a maximum power of 12 hp and a peak torque of 10 Nm. The lightweight of the bike, at 106 kg, was a big factor in its performance. The power-to-weight ratio of the bike was the best in its class. There was an option to choose the bike with either a four-speed transmission or a five-speed transmission. The combined mileage of the bike was between 25 kmpl and 35 kmpl and the top speed was 110 kmph.

At its time, there were only a few options available in the Indian markets for this price range, and its only competitor was the Suzuki Shogun. But in terms of performance, the RX135 outshone the Suzuki completely. Many features that we see today on the most basic bikes were missing from the RX135 but still, it was a legend and still continues to be one of the bikes that people want. There are no ABS or Disc brakes on the bike and the front and the rear feature drum brakes. There are telescopic forks on the front and a swing arm at the rear which handle the suspension duties. The RX135 was available in three different shades, Black Gold, Candy Maroon, Riviera Green.
