Key Specs of Saluto
Yamaha Saluto Highlights
Yamaha has introduced the Saluto 125 with Unified Braking System (UBS). This feature is essentially a combined braking setup which applies the front brake partially, while the rear brake is applied fully. Yamaha says this feature reduces the braking distance, offers better handling during braking and results in smoother chassis behaviour during braking. The motorcycle is available in both front disc and drum versions. The former costs Rs 60,500 while the latter will set you back by Rs 58,800. For an additional Rs 1,000, you get a Matt green colour variant which looks quite stylish with its military-esque theme. Apart from the new colour and UBS, the bike remains the same otherwise. It locks horns with Honda CB Shine, Hero Glamour and Bajaj Discover 125.

Saluto Expert Review
Touted as the family commuter, the Yamaha Saluto is meant for the buyers looking for an economical ride and varied usages like daily commuting, office travels, shopping trips and nearby hauls on the weekends. The bike gets a compact and a fairly upmarket design that exhilarates you to the core. The stylish-looking fuel tank gets a chiselled look and new dual-tone graphics. The weight of the bike has been kept in check to deliver unbelievable performance and economy numbers. Its kerb weight of 112Kg is claimed to be the best in the segment that not only helps in easy manoeuvring but uplifts the fuel efficiency by up to 10%. The generous ground clearance of 180mm is ideal for Indian roads. The disc brake variant on offer adds icing on the cake for the buyers who consider safety as one of the important features. Powered by the Blue Core Engine, it suspends on the reliable pre-load adjustable rear suspension and features grippy tubeless tyres. The Saluto Drum is available in three color shades, black, matt green and red and the price starts at INR 53,898 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) whereas the Saluto Disc starts at INR 56,364 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).

The color schemes on offer are not only pleasing to eyes but gels with the bike’s outlook. The brand has bestowed it with an electric start switch for a quick start and go-attitude.

The upright riding position of the bike is ideal for daily commuting, which in the combination with well-cushioned seat and rear grab rail add to the convenience of the rider as well as the pillion.
