Purple and Red Yamaha RX100 Exhaust Sound and Details

Yamaha, one of the famous Japanese Trio gave its gem to the Indian market more than 3 decades ago. The RX-100 was the best a company could do with a small-sized engine and conservative styling. Built with a 98cc engine, the 2-stroke machine was a pocket rocket. With its lightweight body and high power output, the power-to-weight ratio of the bike made it the best 100cc bike ever built for mass production.

Rammy Wanderer, one of the aspiring YouTubers, recently posted a quick walkaround video of two Yamaha RX100 motorcycles on his YouTube channel and he has explained most of the details of these perfectly-restored models. He also took one of the RX100s for a quick test ride and he also made some points clear regarding the ownership of such retro motorcycles. Here is the complete video -

The engine of the Yamaha RX100 produced a maximum of 11 BHP and 10.39 NM of torque, which were definitely the power values of a 125cc or 135cc machine. The weight of 95 kg made it more responsive and the bike successfully made a 0-400 meter run in 14 seconds.

Some people even say that the top speed of 100 kmph made some of the authorities worry that Yamaha has plonked a high displacement engine (more than 100cc) in the bike, which was then opened and tested, resulting in a 98cc engine. This would have been a really proud moment for an automaker and Yamaha continued its legacy from that day to the present.
