Yamaha’s Zuma Line Of Scooters Back For 2015
More returning Yamahas for 2015:
Yamaha’s “go anywhere, do anything” Zuma line is iconic in the scooter world, and they are back in the lineup for 2015. Known for their peppy engines, durability, large underseat storage, unique headlight designs, powerful front rotors, and aggressive fat knobby tires, the Zuma scooter is offered in three different configurations for 2015, based on style and engine displacement.
The race inspired Zuma 50FX and the bold and aggressive designed Zuma 50F are equipped with a low maintenance, fuel injected 49cc four-stroke engine that gets an incredible 132mpg. Both models feature push button electric starting and a fully automatic V-belt transmission for easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation.
The Zuma 125 with its powerful 4 valve, fuel injected 125cc 4-stroke engine, steel frame, beefy forks and shocks mean the tough off-road image isn’t just for looks. This scooter is at home on unpaved roads all while delivering attitude on the street.
