Gabe takes a spin on the Yamaha Zuma 50F, where our contributing Scooter Editor asks, “Two Strokes Good, Four Strokes...Better?”

Just what the world needs. Another engine with valves. Two stroke Zumas will suddenly have a rapid climb in resale value at this point.

My first motorcycle in Belgium had similar power, but with a 4 speed manual tranny and no storage space.

I had zero issues riding in busy Brussels and environs on that bike and this seems like a great choice for Urban, small town and college applications.

I'm sure after a few years you'd get most of your money back if you decided to sell.

Having had a 50cc (49cc!) scoot, and ridden a bunch of them, I wonder why they even have a variable throttle. Basically you pin it all the way open all the time, only time you roll off is to stop. Hills etc take care of your speed which in ideal conditions is only going to be about 40mph anywau.
Just needs a stop/go switch...

p.s. more scooter reviews please!

I enjoyed the review. I think it will be odd looking at a Zuma and reminding myself they are four-stroke now, but I think I'll survive. I do find it odd that the 50cc gets 109mpg and top speed of 40 mph, but the 125 can only manage 55mpg and 50-70mpg. I guess I would hope for either more pep, or higher mpg out of the 125... Just a thought.

Not bad. !!

Current generation needs a stylish and good looking bikes.
So i think no one young people like this type of motorcycle..

but the old people definitely like this. According to their younger times choice.

Thank you.
