2012 Yamaha Zuma 50F Review

Bold and aggressive, the 49cc 4-stroke engine and off-road-inspired running gear are willing and able to go just about anywhere.

The most fun you can have getting 132 mpg!

Bold and aggressive, the 49cc 4-stroke engine and off-road inspired running gear are willing and able to go just about anywhere.

The all-new 2012 Zuma 50F is a tough, yet sporty 49cc scooter that makes going places fun, even commuting to work or school. It features a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, four-stroke engine that is powerful, quiet, and low-maintenance. Sharp new styling and twin headlights on this new model update the original “„tough, off-road” image of the Zuma, while fat tires give that “go anywhere” look. In addition, the Zuma 50F achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 132 mpg*.

Electronic fuel injection provides smooth, seamless power and nearly instantaneous starts while the fully automatic V-belt transmission provides easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation. The pushbutton electric starting gives ultimate ease of operation and the air-induction system and exhaust catalyst technology reduce air pollution. The large-gauge steel pipe frame offers strength and rigidity and the 1.2-gallon fuel tank positioned low in the center tunnel provides centralized mass and extra convenience – the tank can be refueled without opening the seat, unlike many scooters. The stepped seat allows for an open and roomy ride for two, along with lots of locking storage underneath and added conveniences like an inner pocket and fold-out hook.

The all-new 2012 Zuma 50F comes in Raven, Team Yamaha Blue/White or Alpine White with an MSRP of $2,490 and will be available in dealerships nationwide beginning in September.
