The chairman of Yamaha Motor India has given a lot of information about the return of the RX 100. The company will present the RX with a powerful engine and design. The return of the old RX 100 is not possible due to the two-stroke engine. Know when the RX 100 will be launched.
The road has been cleared for the return of the Yamaha RX100, the famous bike that has rocked Indian roads since the 1980s. Speaking to a news website, Yamaha Motor India Chairman Ishin Chihana has said that the company wants the return of the RX100. However, due to some technical reasons, the old model may not be brought in. But it will be a big challenge for Yamaha to carry the old identity of the RX100 with modern styling. The new model of RX100 can be launched around 2026 with a powerful engine and design. Let's see what is Yamaha's plan regarding the RX100.
Old RX100 will not come
The return of the Yamaha RX100 will not be like the old model. There are two technical reasons for this. The first reason is that the RX 100 comes with a two-stroke engine. At the same time, the second reason is that a BS6-compliant engine can never be produced with a two-stroke engine.
Will launch by 2026
The company's chairman Ishin Chihana says that Yamaha has models for the lineup till 2025. Therefore, the return of RX100 will be possible only after 2026. Talking to Business Line, Chihana said that we have a plan for the return of RX100.
The company will not take the risk
According to Ishin Chihana, the company cannot use the name RX100 so easily. Due to this, there is a risk of spoiling the image of RX100. The new model of RX100 will be revamped. The company wants to launch the RX 100 with good preparation.
Waiting for their return
It will not be easy for Yamaha to present the RX100 with new styling and design. The RX 100 is still fresh in the minds of the people. Therefore, harmonizing with the old identity is a big challenge. Apart from RX100, people are also waiting for the return of Suzuki Samurai and Honda CD-100.
