Review of the 2005 Yamaha Zuma:
Also known as the BWs - A great little scooter!
Author: Al Gauthier, 2006-02-17|
Also known as the Yamaha BWs (Big Wheels) this is a great little two-stroke 50cc scooter for getting around town.
I just bought one myself about one week ago after much research. |
It has a very well built frame, is a powererful little thing for only 50 CC´s, and is comfortable to ride.
It has a large following and thus a large variety of aftermarket parts available for it to inprove it´s performance even further.
It keeps up with city traffic without any problems. I would say the only issue with the stock model is that on steeper hills, the bike slows down considerably, and thus you would want to avoid hills when possible.
It has locked storage (opened through the ignition) under the seat for a large full face helmet, a backlit speedometer and odometer, great breaks (disc in front and drum in rear). The suspention makes for comfortable ride.
I chose to add the windshield and the trunk in the rear for extra added storeage.
For the price, and compaired to all other bikes in it´s price range, I think the BWs is the best....
