Zuma Scooters Brixton
Yamaha Zuma 125cc
Yamaha have added a big brother to the staple 50cc Zuma for the USA 2009 model year. The 125cc version is very much a progression from the 50cc model. The twin headlamps remain which can only be a good
thing. A more visible tubular steel frame has been added along with brush guards on the handle bars. This particular addition strikes me as somewhat peculiar... I could be wrong but how likely is anyone to go on some sort of off road adventure on a 125cc scooter... really! More than likely they will just get in the way as is the case with the ones on the PGO PMX.
This will I imagine be a good seller for Yamaha, with the reputation already built by it's 50cc sibling the somewhat unusual styling is now more common place and the 4 stroke engine should provide reasonable economy. Good on Yamaha for releasing a 125cc bike for the US market... It will be interesting to see how it fares against the likes of the Genuine Buddy 125 et al.
