2013 YAMAHA'S: ZUMA'S RETURN & VINO 50 GETS FUEL INJECTION
Yamaha Announced Vino 50, Zuma 50 and Zuma 125 for 2013
Yamaha USA and Yamaha Canada made concurrent press releases this past week to announce some early 2013 scooter models.
While not likely their complete 2013 lineup, this early release heralded the return of the Vino 50 and both Zuma’s - 50 and 125 - as 2013 models hitting showrooms this summer.
The Vino 50 lands with the biggest splash, as it had previously taken 2012 off and now returns boasting
fuel injection for the first time. This update was only fitting as the new for 2012 Zuma 50 and the departed C3 used the same core motor but with fuel injection while previous iterations of Vino 50 (2006 - 2011) made do with a carb. While lucky to get fuel injection, the small Vino 50 didn’t fare as fortunately in the paint booth. The lone color option for 2013 is a cream-ish shade being called Vanilla White in the USA and Yellow-ish Gray in Canada.
The Zuma’s didn’t receive any mechanical tweaks like the Vino, but they do get some nice color choices for 2013. The 125cc Zuma is going to be offered in Dynamic Blue (USA) and Vivid Metallic Red (Canada) alongside the more standard Matte Black option (both countries). The smaller Zuma 50 is available in Matte Black, Heat Red and Yamaha Blue (Canada Only). Heat Red is likely to be a popular option.
To make up for missing 2012, the Vino 50 is rolling into showrooms now, while the Zuma 50 lands in July and the Zuma 125 in August.
