India Yamaha seems to be in a good spot these days, at least since the new Yamaha Crux became a hot seller in the Indian market. Combining a low price tag and impressive mechanical characteristics, the Yamaha Crux is definitely well suited for a mass market like India.
The Crux isn’t a bike that you’d consider when you’re looking for a world-beater, but if it’s astonishing looks or eye-catching graphics that you’re after, it’s a great choice, even with its simple and sober color schemes. More to that, the Crux also carries some pretty useful features, including an analogue instrument panel, a standard braking system and suspension system, and an engine that packs an impressive punch, at least relative to its stature.
Speaking of its powertrain, the engine of the Yamaha Crux produces top power of 7.6 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and a peak torque of 7.85 Nm at 6,000 rpm. In order to use its engine output in a better way, the company has fitted it with four-speed manual gearbox with the multiplate clutch.
That’s more than enough for us to call this bike worthy of the price consumers will have to shell out for it.

Back in the early 70’s, Ducati built a number of 350-cc Mark 3s for the Swiss Army. But since the Swiss Army were limited to use only Swiss bikes, the Ducati 350 Mark 3s were rebadged as Condors.
To ensure that these bikes were up to the standard of the Swiss Army, the Italian automaker addressed a number of shortcomings in the original Ducati design, including the oil filter, which was modified to fit a standard Ducati. Other changes made to the bike include a bolt-up exhaust flange, an oil dipstick, and filler setup. Finally, the rear wheel was designed to be removed without having to deal with the chain, while the seat mount and electrical connectors were designed for ease of access.
All told, the bike at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco, which was powered by a 340cc SOHC single engine and mated to a five-speed transmission, was in good, original condition. It’s yet to be restored, which it may need in some respects, but it’s still good enough to fetch €3,000 - €4,000, which is about $3,800 - $5,200 based on current exchange rates. Actual selling price, however, was $2,273.
