Yamaha’s all new 125cc commuter motorcycle, the Saluto is out in the market. It gets Yamaha’s new Blue Core-enabled 125cc engine which lays claim to a fuel efficiency of 78kmpl. While the design language seems familiar (reminiscent of the YBR125), Yamaha says that the motorcycle is all new and is significantly lighter than the YBR125, with a weight comparable to 110cc motorcycles – well, almost. Here are the images from the photoshoot accompanying our comprehensive road test.

The meters are basic, comprising an odo, fuel gauge and tell tale lights

The drum only brake set-up is another wet blanket and we really wish that Yamaha could have included a front disc brake

The switchgear is simple and reminiscent of the older Yamaha commuter motorcycles

The Saluto’s Blue Core engine is refined with lots of midrange torque

The only limiting factor in the package seems to be the Ceat Secura tubeless tyres that seem to reach their limit before the chassis and suspension combination does

The headlight features an odd central pilot lamp

We would have preferred an LED unit for the tail lamp

The Saluto’s tank is an attractive shape with minimal graphics and similar to the FZ series, it features plastic panels on either side of a metal tank

The ride quality is a positive and though it’s on the ‘firm’ side of good, it absorbed some very bad potholes on our test run, transferring little discomfort to the rider
