2012 Yamaha Zuma 125 Features and Benefits

ENGINE

•Zuma’s fuel-injected, 125cc single cylinder, 4-stroke engine pumps out lots of power for its size, using an SOHC 4-valve head with 10:1 compression ratio and ceramic-composite cylinder plating.

•Pushbutton electric starting makes the Zuma 125 super-convenient for transportation.

•For reliability and easy maintenance, simple wet-sump lubrication is used. The centrifugal oil filter built into the crankshaft means there’s no messy oil filter to replace.

•Forced air cooling system helps keep engine temperatures under control, even while idling at stoplights, for maximum efficiency and longer engine life.

•Fully automatic, V-belt transmission with centrifugal clutch provides easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation with great off-the-line acceleration.

•Fuel injection provides the optimal fuel mixture for the operating condition, including temperature and altitude, and that means easy cold starts, too.

•Oiled-paper type air filter helps trap dirt before it gets to your engine, even when riding on unpaved roads. The V-belt housing has its own off-road-style wet-foam air filter for durability.

•Upswept muffler incorporates exhaust catalyst technology to reduce air pollution and meet emission regulations.


 

CHASSIS / SUSPENSION

•Hefty steel-tube frame has a step-through design for easy mounting. A two-stage electrodeposition and electrostatic painting process provides a durable, corrosion-resistant finish.

•Telescopic fork features beefy outer tubes for strength, while slider shrouds help protect the 27mm inner tubes from debris.

•Swingarm has double rear shocks for riding comfort on the street and unpaved roads, too.

•Fuel tank holds 1.6 gallons for plenty of cruising range. Fuel tank emission system includes a charcoal canister to control gasoline evaporation and reduce air pollution.

•Fat 120/70-12 front and 130/70-12 rear tires have an aggressive looking block pattern for great handling on unpaved roads and on the street. Tires run on lightweight five-spoke die-cast aluminum wheels.

•220mm hydraulic front disc and rear drum brakes combine for serious stopping power.

•Zuma provides both a centerstand and side stand for parking convenience.



ADDITIONAL DETAILS / FEATURES

•Two bright halogen headlights light the way—following current sportbike practice, the left side provides the 55W low beam while the right side is the 60W high beam.

•For extra security when parked, the main switch is equipped with a key hole lock cover.

•The underseat storage compartment’s cavernous 5.2-gallon capacity is roomy enough for a full-face helmet.

•The Zuma 125’s easy-to-read analog speedometer is flanked by a fuel gauge and indicator lights.
