What makes Yamaha RX100/135 different from other bikes???
Escorts limited launched RX 100 during the later phase of 1985 which revolutionised the Indian Bike Market. Now the point is that what makes this bike brand so special?
Looks? Control? Security? No, not at all. If you look for above mentioned three qualities, RX is not at all an option. Then what makes this a firebrand. Undoubtedly, it is the riding comfort and pickup. Some people including myself loves this august motorcycle even by its sweet phony. I myself being an auto enthusiast had driven lots of bikes [not in the range of super bikes though- I'm taking defence :-)] but still if anyone asks me to rate, RX will surely be there in top 5 of my list.The pickup of this engineering wonder from Yamaha is incredible at least up to first 60kmph. Once you ride RX there is no point in thinking twice for bidding a 'like' in Facebook. That is the real power of this peerless two wheeler. If you look 100 cc bike which can manage to win a race if conducted with 150cc segment you will be guided to RX without being loath.
A question which may arise is that which is best - 100 or 135?? I will back 135 -if its five speed, else 100 only. You will come across the demerit of 100 only when you cross 60kmph. With an added fifth gear 135cc counterpart can palliate this handicap.
Every coin has two sides. If you are kind of person backing mileage, RX will not be your Venus. At the same time it will surely be a regrettable miss if you hadn't driven RX100/135 and at the same time you belong to the leonine chunk of men enjoying the art of driving. If you are riding an RX you are surely gonna feel like a king. Then why wasting your life with the so called economical 100cc dross bikes, bearing compunction caused by the mighty RX . Go for RX. Unfortunatley there is no fresh RX 100 available from Yamaha. But you can manage to get a well condition second hand below 20k. Live like a king - try RX!!! Hail RX
