India Yamaha Motors Pvt Ltd. has just launched a new variant of the Saluto. The Yamaha Saluto has been catering to the fast growing executive commuter segment since April this year and the new variant is aimed at the young and the stylish. It should help Yamaha bring in more customers to the Saluto motorcycle brand. The Yamaha Saluto RX finds itself slotted kust below the SZ series in Yamaha India’s product portfolio and the latest commuter motorcycle from Yamaha rivals the 110cc executive commuters from Bajaj, Hero MotoCorp and Honda. Here, in this post, we have put together all the available information on the Yamaha Saluto RX price, specifications and mileage of new Yamaha 110cc bike in India.
Yamaha Saluto RX Price

Apart from these, the Saluto RX will also lock horns with the likes of Honda Dream Yuga, TVS Star City Plus and Bajaj CT100. Basically, the new bike is a slightly toned down version of the regular Saluto 125cc executive commuter that was launched over a year ago.
