2012 Yamaha Crux
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.
