Is the Yamaha Saluto good

Sporting typical commuter-like looks, the Yamaha Saluto is practical and a lightweight motorbike you’d love to get on. Accentuating the appeal, the bike comes with elements like halogen headlamp, aerodynamic front cowl, clear-lens front turn blinkers, convenient rear grab rail, blacked-out engine, 18-inch alloy wheels, a long comfy seat with adequate padding and a 7.6-litre fuel tank that embraces all-new graphics and muscular design. 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. However, there is a kick too as a back-up. The instrument console consists of an analogue speedometer, fuel gauge and odometer. 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. Manoeuvring the bike is super-easy, thanks to its compact structure, lightweight, apt riding stance and wide handlebar. Considering the quality of roads it’ll ride on, the company has given it a generous ground clearance of 180mm, which makes it an ideal bike to own especially in India.

Dimensionally, it measures 2035mm long, 720mm wide and 1090mm high. The wheelbase of the bike sits at 1265mm.
