Safeguarding the spirit of Yamaha RX bikes and to steer ahead the spirit of adventure and excitement, 500 owners of Yamaha RX have formed a new club. This owners club plans long distance rides and portray the spirit of the adventure bike which had its beginnings way back in 1985.
The club which is formed on the same lines as most Royal Enfield Bullet clubs in India, will see owners of Yamaha RX take part in various activities and protect the identity of this much loved bike.
Owners who have been riding the Yamaha RX over the past few years find it exceedingly comfortable for long distance travel while it can take on any sort of Indian terrain. HM Jayaprakash, an avid RX owner has stated that this bike offers excellent pickup, comfort and sound. Even as he purchased the bike for INR 58,000, its resale value was well over INR 75,000.
Though discontinued years ago, the two-stroke machines have been missed badly by fans across India. The formation of such groups will bring old days back, though for a brief period.
Yamaha RX is a discontinued bike and only available through second-hand bike portals and second hand bike dealers in the country. The most popular RX, RX100 is powered by a 98 cc 2-stroke, reed valve, air-cooled, single-cylinder, gasoline engine offering 11 bhp power at 7,500 rpm and 10.39 Nm torque at 6,500 rpm. It offers ground clearance at 145mm, sports a fuel tank of 10.5 liter capacity and commands a top speed of 100 kmph.
