Yamaha India has silently discontinued its Crux motorcycle by removing it from its official website. The motorcycle was their most humble offering in the country. Several new and exciting models will be replacing the Crux model in India.
The Crux by Yamaha was pitted against the likes of Hero Splendor and the Honda Dream range. The Yamaha Crux was not popular among the commuter segment, which reflected in poor sales figures. Production of the entry-level commuter was halted sometime during January 2016.
Powering the Crux was a 106cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine by Yamaha. The engine would produce 7.5bhp, along with 7.5Nm of peak torque and was mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The Yamaha Crux could achieve a top speed 93km/h and deliver a fuel economy of 60km/l.
So far, Yamaha Motors India has not announced a replacement for their Crux motorcycle. At this moment, Yamaha's Saluto motorcycle is their most affordable bike in the country. We are not sure if Yamaha would be introducing an all-new commuter bike specifically for India or not.
Recently, Yamaha Motors India discontinued several of their models. The Ray scooter, along with the FZ1 naked street fighter have been omitted from the official website. The FZ and Fazer carburettor models by Yamaha are not available in India anymore.
