The Yamaha RX100 is one of the most favourite motorcycles of its time, all thanks to its lightweight characteristic along with crazy acceleration. The bike had to retire with the incoming of stricter emission norms but that did not resulted in the end of the fan following of this bike. The Yamaha RX100 is still admired across the world and it is the first choice of numerous bike enthusiasts when it comes to motorcycle customisation. Recently, we have come across an example of a Yamaha RX100 that has been transformed into a cafe racer by Hyderabad-based Ironic Engineering.
The engine fitted in this Yamaha RX100 cafe racer is the same unit that used to run the standard model. The two-stroke motor has a displacement of 98cc and comes linked to a four-speed gearbox. The engine develops a maximum power output of 11 bhp along with a peak torque of 10.39 Nm.
This Yamaha RX100 cafe racer gets minimalistic body work that gives it a raw appearance. The front end receives a rounded headlamp and the metal visor above it further adds to the charm. This bike has been fitted with dual purpose tyres to offer the performance that justifies ‘the best of both worlds’. Braking duties are done with the help of drum brakes at both ends. The seating on this one takes its inspiration from a typical cafe racer with the same single saddle layout.
