With the wide range of motorcycle designs and features, it is indeed a bit of a hard time picking for what the best among the top-of-the-line is, considering the following important items: Price, Fuel efficiency, engine, style, and comfort. Among these particulars, the question of which model will suffice your satisfaction gives only another set of question asking for the same thing over and over that would only stop once you settle and buy the one you think you wanted. If you are one of the many consumers who don’t know how to choose a good motorcycle, consider this latest model from Yamaha that I will put in to review.

The 2010 Yamaha Zuma 125 is a combination of fun and practicality for those motorcycle enthusiasts. With its unique design, you’ll surely be a head-turner once you fire on the engine and conquer the road. With its exposed steel-tube frame and big classic headlights, Zuma has broken the bounds of common styling cues among others. This headlight system features dual bulb with housings that is mounted on top of the apron for a greater visibility especially at night and gives you a sporty finish. Because it is small, Zuma can be parked easily with either a kickstand or a center-stand. It is lightweight with plastic body material and steel frame that can accommodate up to two persons. The fully automatic transmission and electric push-button button starter makes it more convenient for the driver to start the engine and go in an instant. And if you are worried once the battery dies, there is a backup kick-starter that will save your day.

Zuma is equipped with a 125cc forced air-cooled 4-stroke single cylinder engine that gives you powerful and smooth driving at all times. Its reed-valve induction will provide you with an excellent throttle response and power delivery just like those on the top-of-the-line. The fuel capacity is 1.5 gal which is enough for you to travel long distances in a full tank. Exclusive autolube oil injection system answers your problem over messy and hassle premixing of fuel and oil, and with its easy to read indicator light found on the instrument pane, you will always be alerted when oil level gets low. During winter or rainy season, the automatic choke makes cold starting a breeze.

Measuring a length of just 74.4 in, width of 27.8 in, and a height of 43.7, this compact model is all you ever wanted for a motorcycle. Seat height is 30.1 in, which is also perfect for short people. A ground clearance of 4.7 in ensures that the bottom portion of the body wont bump into small uneven roads or humps on the road. The wheels measure 50.2 in and have a 155mm break disc.

The over-all specification of Yamaha Zuma is ideal for motorcycle enthusiasts and even for office-working individuals. It is lightweight, stylistic, fuel friendly, and most of all, it is manufactured by the world-known Yamaha and comes with a 1 year limited factory warranty for your peace of mind.
