Yamaha Crux Bikes

Here comes the assessment of the standard 100c segment bike – The Yamaha Crux. To sum it up, I am extremely pleased with this bike. I can daringly say that this is the best bike in this category.

The bike has the major engine in its category evaluated to the engines of Hero Honda CD Dawn and Bajaj Platina. The bike is even even at high speeds, thanks to Yamaha’s engineers! Users have accounted that there had not been any starting trouble with the engine so far even in cold conditions. Yamaha Crux bike gives a mileage of 65kmpl in cities and up to 75 – 80 kmpl in highway riding circumstances. The maximum safe speed that one can in general attain is 90 kmph. Even though it can be obligatory to higher numbers, I wouldn’t counsel it.

Crux S sports the typical plain look of economy segment bikes with the fairing-free front side. New decals and stylish graphics have rendered a new look. This bike is not advertised enough and it has not been considered as a choice by many. Given its low price, Yamaha cannot spend huge amounts on advertising. But it is a little gem which comes loaded with low cost, good mileage and decent looks. With Over 4 lacs bikes already sold in India, Crux is winning the hearts of entry level buyers.

Its ergonomics is perfect — the handlebar reaches up to the rider along with the well placed seat and footrests. The seat itself is accommodating and the ride quality is fine. Handling is neither outstanding nor worse, which can normally be expected from this class of bike. This lightweight motorcycle can snake through the busy streets of city. The Crux S corners well with the skinny tyres though the brakes are to be improved. With the rural friendly big fuel tank, it gives 60kmpl and can run 0-60km in just 11.7 seconds with the top speed of 91kmph.

  1. Yamaha India has launched its ancestral model in the market loaded with new features and specification. This time they have updated the power of engine and that's why there is some variation of Yamaha crux price.
