Yamaha has launched the new updated version of Yamaha Saluto 125 and Saluto RX. The new versions now come with Unified Braking System (UBS). This is done to meet the government safety norms for bikes under 125cc motorcycles. These norms specify that motorcycles below 125cc should have some sort of combined braking system. The norms are brought in to effect from April 2019.
Unified Braking System (UBS) works by partial applying front brake also when rear brake is engaged. This improves the braking performance as well as safety. This technology is also known as Combined Braking System or CBS. The UBS upgrade is available in all variants of both Saluto 125 and Saluto RS. Both the motorcycles are now also available in four color schemes.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Motofumi Shitara, Chairman, Yamaha Motor India group of companies said: “Yamaha’s unique style is to continually innovate its products in order to have a strong connection with the customers. At the same time, the company also feels an equal responsibility to ensure safety for the riders by introducing latest technologies. The Unified Braking System (UBS) will now create an easy riding scenario for any rider. The controlled experience of riding backed by Yamaha’s DNA of exciting, stylish and sporty will also spur excitement in the market.”
