Yamaha Motors India has announced the launch of its new bike called Yamaha Saluto. The most striking features of the motorcycle include front disc brakes, four new colours (Green, Blue, White and Red), a lightweight design and above all an economical price tag. The 125cc Yamaha Saluto is being promoted as a family-use bike that boasts of a mileage of 78 kmpl. In fact, the bike sports a tagline 'Mileage Tujhe Salaam' to attract the consumer's attention towards the bike's tempting mileage specs. There's a lot going for the bike when it comes to new feature additions and specifications. For instance, to enhance the rider's comfort, there's new suspension, footrests & seat as well as a resin tank cover.


Powered by a 4-stroke SOHC 2-valve 125cc engine that churns a max horse power of 6.1kW (8.3PS) / 7000r/min and max torque of 10.1 Nm / 4500r/min, the Yamaha Saluto comes with both electric & kick starting system. With a fully loaded fuel tank and oil, the bike's overall weight is 112kg. The bike features a min. ground clearance of 180 mm to ensure that the Saluto sail over the rough roads with great ease. Featuring a capacity of 7.6 litres, the fuel tank has been given a muscular design and adorned with stylish graphics.

The bike's tubeless tyres avoid pinch-flats in bumpy terrains and the front cowl with wind screen gives the bike the sporty image it yearns for. An interesting new feature is the 'Saree Guard' that helps the pillion riders keep their clothes out of the way. The meter console comes with eco zone that increase the cool quotient quite a few notches.

Coming to the specifications, the Yamaha Saluto features telescopic fork front suspension and swingarm rear suspension. There's mechanical leading trailing drum brake on both front and rear.

With that we come to the end of the features highlighted by the manufacturer. The folks over at Yamaha have published a new TVC to promote Saluto. Check it out here:
