– 2006 Yamaha Vino 125
Think about all the things that you look for in a scooter. Let’s run down a little checklist, shall we?
Stylish, Euro-inspired good looks? Check. Room for two – plus ample storage for urban-suburban commuting? For sure. Fuel efficiency that has you snickering every time you’re at the gas pump? You bet.
Oh, and how could we forget — a zippy, fun ride? Yep. That too. In fact, with a 125cc 4-stroke engine, the Vino 125 gives you more pep than you’ll know what to do with. The only place it’s miserly is at the pump. So what’re you waiting for? Scoot!
Peppy, 124cc, air-cooled (with fan assist), SOHC, 2-valve, 4-stroke engine produces solid, predictable power and incredible fuel economy.
Maximum speed is approximately 85 to 90 km/hr.
Fan-assisted cooling system maintains consistent engine temperatures, even while idling at stoplights or in traffic for maximum efficiency and longer engine life.
Fast, dependable electric starting with backup kickstarter too.
Mikuni 26mm carburetor utilizes a hassle-free automatic choke and special carb heater to ensure fast starts even in cold weather. Throttle response is crisp while fuel economy is excellent.
Fully automatic V-belt transmission ensures easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation.
Maintenance-free DC-CDI ignition system provides a precise, high-voltage spark for seamless engine performance, sure starts and excellent reliability.

Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide emissions by injecting fresh air into the exhaust port to completely burn any unburned gases in the exhaust.
E.E.C. (Evaporative Emission Control) system traps any fuel tank emissions (gas vapours – hydrocarbons) before they can enter the environment.
Environmentally friendly muffler not only produces a quiet exhaust note, but also features a special catalytic coating that reduces harmful hydrocarbons and nitrous oxide emissions.
Open, step-through, underbone-style, steel-tube frame allows fast, easy mounting and dismounting.
33mm hydraulic front fork with 59mm (2.3″) of wheel travel delivers good bump-absorbing performance and comfort.

Large, locking, underseat storage compartment can easily hold a full-face helmet.
Rugged rear rack adds additional carrying capacity.
Large, chromed, 60/65-watt, multi-reflector, quartz headlight maximizes nighttime visibility and enhances the Vino’s retro styling.
