Ready to Get Dirty

even when riding on unpaved roads. The V-belt housing has its own
off-road-style wet-foam air filter for durability.

Clean-Running Design
Upswept muffler incorporates exhaust catalyst technology to reduce air
pollution and meet emission regulations.
Hardy Steel Frame
Robust steel-tube frame is light but strong, and features a step-through

Telescopic fork features beefy outer tubes for strength, while fork boots
help protect the large 33mm inner tubes from debris. The swingarm
features twin rear shocks with a full 3.1 in of travel for riding comfort
on the street and unpaved roads, too.

emissions system includes a charcoal canister to control gasoline
evaporation and reduce air pollution.

Heavy-Duty Tires and Wheels
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.

High Quality Braking
245mm hydraulic front disc and 200mm rear disc brakes provide plenty
of stopping power, while the wave-type front rotor design adds
cutting-edge style.

Comfortable Ergonomics
A plush and roomy riding position is ready for two, with a narrow seat
design for easier flat-footing at stops, and plenty of leg space in front
of the rider’s seat. Meanwhile, the passenger gets secure handholds
that blend cleanly into the Zuma 125’s body design.

Aggressive Headlights and Styling
Two bright halogen headlights light the way, with the sculpted
bodywork smoothly wrapping around the aggressive lighting design.

Plenty of Storage
The underseat storage compartment’s cavernous 7.7-gallon capacity is
roomy enough for a full-face helmet, while a cup holder and fold-out
cargo hook on the dash makes it easy to bring it all with you.

Modern Gauge Package
The Zuma 125’s stylish LCD meter features a fuel gauge as well as a
full range of indicator lights.

Secure and Convenient
Zuma 125 provides both a centerstand and side stand for parking
convenience. For extra security when parked, the main switch is
equipped with a keyhole lock cover. And the fuel filler is found just
left of the ignition switch for easy refueling.
