Yamaha may resurrect RX 100 in 4-stroke!
Yamaha Motors is working on a relaunch of its once-popular model, the RX 100.

The company is examing various options, such as engine type and styling. However, sources say it would largely maintain the basic design of the earlier vehicle, which drove demand for the company.

Known for its acceleration and agility, the RX 100 was the choice of many young Indians in the mid and late 1980's, after Yamaha (in partnership with Escorts Ltd) launched it in 1985.

Pankaj Dubey, national business head, India Yamaha Motor, said: “We are working on the lines of the RX 100 and are looking to have something of a similar product for India. It will be early to talk about it but we will come out with a product there.”

One reason the RX 100 was phased out by Yamaha was the adoption of stricter emission control norms in the country. The RX 100 was a high polluter. Its two-stroke engine had a problem meeting the required norms, first brought about in the mid-1990s.

Eventually, most two-stroke bike manufacturers either upgraded their models with four-stroke engines or simply terminated production and replaced these with different models. Yamaha opted to shut production of the RX 100 in 1996, as more frugal, fuel-efficient and low on maintenance four-stroke bikes made their way into the market.

However, the two-stroke range were considered special by many owners worldwide because of the higher power option they offered, compared to the four-stroke powered engines. In addition, they allowed riders to ride the bike at very low rpm in higher gears (10 km/hr in fourth gear, for instance).

Yamaha will not relaunch the RX 100 with a two-stroke bike, as India would upgrade to even stricter Bharat Stage IV emission norms in the coming months. “We cannot launch the RX (100) with a two-stroke engine but we are working on a four-stroke version for the bike,” added Dubey.

The launch could catapult Yamaha’s volumes multi-fold if the bike is priced in the same category as other entry or commuter level bikes, says experts.

“It is difficult to find the bike in the resale market, as current owners do not want to part with it. Many bike enthusiasts have asked Yamaha to reintroduce the RX 100, known for its legendary style and performance. If the company manages to do what Enfield did to the Classic model, then it will be a success,” said a motoring expert.

From a share of about 3 per cent currently, Yamaha is targeting 10 per cent market share, or sales of 850,000 units by 2012, when the Indian motorcycle market is expected to swell to 8.5 million from the current 5.8 million (as of the year ended March 2009).

YEES 2 stroke RX100 can not be re lanched but 2 stroke bikes with the Gasoline Direct injection (GDi) engine. It has substantially lower emissions than even alternate clean fuels like CNG and LPG. Additionally, it has lower operating costs than four stroke technology that currently dominates the bike market.” According to sources in the automobile industry Dear Yamaha I had bought RX135 5 speed 2001 model now my bro have Bought a Yamaha FZ-s but still I like my 135 5 speed the cylinder head was changed, but the macanic said let the original Piston be there as it got fit but now there is an noise when I ride it jus makes me sad and Carburetor other parts of my vehicle is in an immaculate condition. I need the spare parts for my vehicle to restore to its original condition. please can any one tell me where can I get the original spares.

Well I am one of your good old customer since 1985, When my father presented a Yamaha RX100 motor cycle In the year 2000 after becoming an Asst. Professor I have purchased Yamaha RX135 5 speed model, that bike I own even now. I am extremely happy about its performance with little or no maintenance at all. Even though it’s a good machine it will also undergo wear and tear in view of years of use. Well now according to my mechanic except the cylinder head, Piston and Carburetor other parts of my vehicle is in an immaculate condition. I need the said spare parts for my vehicle to restore to its original condition. It is a trouble free dependable model that I don’t like to change. I knew that the said model is out of assembly and now its original spares are not available. Now a old customer of Yamaha motor cycles, Who used RX series only since from his teen age, may I request yamaha that all the spares for Yamaha RX135 series motor cycles must be made available soon in the m

if yamaha is to launch a four stroke rx-100, then for it to be able to actually live up to its past(2 stroke rx-100), this model has to come with an engine having 15bhp of power and 17 NM of torque.then maybe it can stand shoulder to shoulder with the rx-100 and its legacy.

  Posted by Jeevan Chaukar at 12th December,2010
By all means, re-launch RX-100 with its original classy and simplistic look intact. Only change should be introduction of Disc Brake and Tachometer and slightly wider tyres. Most critical - RX-100 was NEVER A WORK HORSE. It was a high-performance bike of its era. Hence new RX-100 has to be PERFORMANCE bike and not entry level commuter. With latest technology, it should be possible to have even 100 cc 4 stroke bike to be high performer if really designed for that.

You can use the Yamaha Crux (new)engine - 4 strock to the same model of RX100 without any change ,expect the power system of headlight ( you can use what is used in crux).We are sure, it will creat a wide impact on the sale of yamaha bikes ,it will attract the customers who deside to buy a 4 Strock Bike..( even if Hero Honda , Bajaj etc.. marketing the same..)
  Posted by Manzar Abbas at 22nd November,2010
RX 100 is the only bike in the world which will change the beating sound on every gear and on every speed you ride. If Yamaha relaunches rx100 in four stroke version then it's going to be a big flop. Yamaha is the King of the kings in india for it well know 2 stroke engine and the maximum horsepower is 11.5 at 7,500 rpm with a top speed of 140. The maximum torque is 6.3 feet-pounds at 6500 rpm. I don't think that any Indian bike can give this performance.

the heart of the RX100 is its 2 stroke engine which makes that melodious roar has ruled the enthusiasts hearts....can it be re-created with a 4 stroke engine?? also the same kind of acceleration can't be achieved with a 4 stroke...i hope they don't dilute the brand of RX100 by making just another 100cc bike like the the hero hondas and bajaj...it will be such a waste!!!

RX 100 is my beutiful princess,she stands out stunningly with the crown .The crown is on the top of the Head Lamp,i.e. the face of my darling princess. But not only she ramps gracefully also roars like a king.I'm lucky to be a maid of such a majesty from the year 1986 till date and every single second hereafter.

Yamaha should also relaunch it's 350 c.c. bike with fuel injection, dual disc & 35 bhp liquid cooled engine within 1.5 lacs.
  Posted by I.M.Aonok at 8th August,2010
The idea of an RX 250 with the old styling and modern components is indeed mouth-watering. I think there will be a considerable number of enthusiasts willing to buy such a product. Yamaha should at least try to gauge public opinion by showing a prototype in some autoshows.
  Posted by Jasjit at 8th August,2010
I have a 94 make black color RX100. Believe me the bike still rules the roads, the engine has never been opened till date, has excellent pick-up, good accelration, gives a tough competition to other bokes in terms of having a complete ride satisfaction, and it rules. The way it roares when you just past by and people turn back and look at you. Aha! i love the moment and my life is complete. I love my RX100 and proud to say 'm a RXite.

launch the rx 100
  Posted by Sachin_rt at 20th July,2010
I believe Indian market is so particular about the choice. It’s not just the RX100 brand that will help YAMAHA selling the Bick. RX100 was an accident that YAMAHA came up with the unique style & performance all together. I think neither YAMAHA nor any other company can match the expectation these RX100 lovers has. YAMAHA just need to go back to the original design & have to reproduce the same thing once again, which is not possible due to some legal affairs. I will say YAMAHA need to work so hard to get the check list for the expectation the Bick lovers has, once they got it they will succeed in the goal.

Yamaha RX100(2-st) is the legetry bike.after 100's peroid yamaha release RXG,RXZ,RX135,RX135 5SPEED(all bikes are 2-stroke).But no other bikes become succes fully.Now yamaha going to release 4stroke engine so i am sure about thousand's steps back from THE OLD YAMAHA.YAMAHA Got this succes from it sound.There is no way for that royal sound in 4stroke engine.

  Posted by george at 7th February,2010
Yamaha re-launching RX100 sounds good. Being owned a RX for the last 23 years, I would say that unless it sounds, moves like a 2 stroke RX , just looks will not bring back the old customers to the showroom. If Yamaha can bring in fuel injection on 2strokes to keep pollution as per norms it will be history. If they can’t then they should bring in the SR400 which looks like a big RX, royal classic looks which can even get some of the loyal RE customers as well. Either case bring back the classics, we love them

  Posted by Rajan at 4th February,2010
It is Shame for yamaha BE/B-Tech / MCA engineers and Yamaha India operation Director - The day when India AARI says 2 stroke vehicle to be banned Immediately they might have entered to 4 stroke vehicle. For this there is no need to be MBA/BE/B-tech. I suggest that Yamaha can come with Compressed AIR based vehicle there by no one in India manufactures the same , also with Solar Based Motorbikes.

  Posted by shahabuddin at 31st January,2010
Well its good to re-launch the RX100 but it should be more powerful & fast than it is pervious.I dont think so. That 2 stroke will work now in a superbike competition
  Posted by ravi pandey at 28th January,2010
well i think its a marketing gimmick to cash on the popularity of rx100. same as was with the unsuccessful yamaha rxg or rxz or rx135. now as the polution norms are so strict for 2 stroker bikes...the last two stroker from yamaha was rajdoot 175 which the company had stopped from 2005. me too thinks that now rx100 had acquired a iconic status just coz of its revvy 2 stroke heart. so launching it in four stroke version will not work at all.. yamaha should also think about re-introduction of rajdoot 350 in india as it was a failed tale wen launched due to its prolifigerated fuel consumption & not serious bikers then(as they r now)... -ravi pandey
  Posted by sunil at 23rd January,2010
launch as early as possible. i am searching very much. not available in second sale market. not to launch copy. launch original two stroke rx100 or rx135.
  Posted by Bobby at 22nd January,2010
What was unique about RX 100 was its engine.If it comes with any other engine, it will not be RX 100.I think Yamaha is going to launch a 100 CC bike and name it as RX 100, to encash nostalgia and loyalty it commanded.
  Posted by Hafeez at 22nd January,2010
Hey Yamaha India..how about resurrecting the legendary RD350??! @Tejalinga : There's an RD350 engined FZ16 in Hyderabad. Thats absolutely amazing stuff!
  Posted by avanish kumar at 21st January,2010
yes rx100 should be relaunch
  Posted by Nitin Girish at 21st January,2010
To clear some misconceptions first, P220s 20bhp also comes with 150kgs weight. RX is 103kgs with full fuel & oil tank. Having said that, I think there is already four-stroke RX100-Crux. This is I think Yamaha's bid to the volume king 100cc segment. They are just ,trying to masquerade it as a perfromance bike. 4stroke, 11bhp out of 100cc? Dream on!
  Posted by prashant at 20th January,2010

  Posted by Tejalinga at 20th January,2010
Hey how about RD-350 engine in FZ & Fazer.Superb naa.
  Posted by Pratik Punjabi at 19th January,2010
Biking has come of age in India since RX 100 was phased out. I have a RX 100 parked in my garage even today. The latest bikes such as FZs, Pulsars, Karizmas have latest designs, lots of electronic gizmos and are powerful too. During early 90s, 11 bhp was considered good (RX 100 had 11bhp), but today the 220 Pulsar comes with approx 20 odd bhp, Karizma and FZ with 17 odd bhp - which means much more powerful engines. If Yamaha would want to re-launch RX 100 loaded with more power, newer styling, etc, then it will loose the original character. Today, RX 100 has more sentimental value (read nostalgia) rather than any competitive sense. At best, they can look at "limited edition" series.
