2010 Yamaha BWs / Zuma 50

The sporty Zuma is a fantastic combination of fun and practicality.

The 2010 Yamaha BW’s 50 (called the Zuma in the USA) fully-automatic transmission and electric starting means effortless, twist-and-go riding, and there’s lots of room for two. There’s also plenty of power in the 49cc reed-valve engine. Livin’ for the city? This is your ride.

Good things come in small packages.

Back by popular demand, the sporty Zuma is a fantastic combination of fun and practicality. Think of it as a very trick scooter or a very small sport-utility vehicle, the 2010 Yamaha Zuma’s up for anything.

Nothing gets you around town quicker and more efficiently than the decidedly zippy 2010 BW’s 50 sport scooter.

The peppy 49cc reed-valve 2-stroke engine fires up effortlessly at the push of a button, and fully automatic transmission makes for “gas it and go” operation, so you can just enjoy the ride. There’s plenty of room for two on the comfortable seat, and a large storage compartment under the seat lets you stash your helmet or other small packages. A catalyzer in the exhaust reduces emissions, while wide aggressive tires, front disc brake and rear carrier complete the package. Ride a 2010 BW’s and remind yourself why you choose to live in the city. Make every ride a total hoot!
