Japanese giant Yamaha Motorcycles has launched a new motorcycle in the heavily congested entry level commuter segment and it is the Saluto RX 110. The bike is basically a downsized version of the 125cc Saluto. During the previous year, Yamaha had discontinued the YBR 110 and the Crux. This bike aims to fill the void left by the Crux and YBR 110.
