What is the Yamaha Zuma?
The first Zuma was the 1989 Yamaha Zuma 50 CW50 Chassis; a two-stroke, 49cc scooter that was also air cooled. The engine was a 49cc two-stroke Minarelli, which was used in many scooters and bikes in Europe. These first engines were also known as vertical engines because their cylinder would point at near vertical like many motorcycle engines. The second generation Zuma held the YW50 Chassis designation in 2002. The scooter was redesigned and was dubbed the "Bug Eye" due to its now large headlight design. The engine also had a change from the vertical Minarelli to the horizontal Minarelli. In 2009, Yamaha also introduced the YW125 chassis better known as the Zuma 125. This was the large version of the Zuma 50 people were asking for, though the two chassis do not share much other than a name. The Zuma 125 comes equipped with a Taiwanese built, 124cc engine. It is also a 4-stroke, air-cooled engine that uses fuel injection instead of a carburetor.
