Please sir, I want more.

Torrance, California, 17, 2002 — What was the of that cheezy 80’s song- I want you to want me? I that was what the Zuma was to me as I motored around the streets of Los Angeles. I really wanted to it back, but the chemistry just flowing; sorry baby, but I my space- nothing personal or

There has been a soft in my heart for scooters for years. My encounter with the species at the age of 11 on a Honda Spree back in the of those machines. It was an experience left me feeling like a and hoping that my awesome at controlling the beast had impressed the blonde who was (hopefully) observing one of my studly moves.

My appreciation for the little two-smokers was during a Spring Break to Southern Spain two years where everyone buzzes on stylish Aprilia scooters to suit the personality of the rider. stickers and exhausts are common, helmets are not. Scooters a great way to get around crowded streets that look the Romans had just left.

the incident involving the Spree and the blonde, I just didn’t like much of a stud the Zuma around LA. It has everything for it except that intangible thrill one gets from in control of a well-built machine poise, character and power. the Zuma has all those going for it the power factor.

The Zuma an intimidating visage in this urban alleyway.

The Yamaha website promises a feisty engine with fast response and power delivery. I missed that somewhere my weekend of waving faster past me.

When pulling away a stoplight it has decent acceleration an un-scientific 0-30 time of 9.8934 seconds. It ultimately up to a top speed of an indicated 40-mph, but the of time that elapses traveling from 30 to 40 mph feels an eternity, and in this town 40 mph is too slow for surface streets.

By the you do get up to speed, all those rabid that you blew off the line caught up and are out for blood revenge. The is an on-off proposition with left in between. I think the way I could get a ticket on the Zuma be to ride … downhill at WOT a quiet residential area the muffler off.

On the positive of life, it is an excellent overall with excellent brakes, handling at all speeds and a suspension does an admirable job.

With a 155mm disc on the front and a drum on the back, the gives complete confidence in all of stoppage. The handling, too, is and responsive at slower speeds, but solid and steady at top whack.

the suspension doing its job and the cushy padding my not-so padded it makes the scooter almost plush and comfortable. But, at I feel hunched over and can quite find a position for my on the floorboards that feels and comfortable.

The Zuma just so practical; with about the power it would be both AND exciting. With the rally-inspired and oversized tires, the Zuma the part and you expect some scrappiness inside of it. In an ideal we’d have two offerings: the as well as another that the sharp styling, great and overall practical foundation of the but with a little more to back up the boast.

Yamaha sells two sporty in Europe (both offered either 125 or 150cc 4-… called the Teo’s and the Maxster, but in a driven by cost versus we can’t always get our heart’s

However, the fact remains the market is increasingly moving all 4 strokes, the scooter market is and Yamaha’s scooter sales been particularly strong. at Yamaha couldn’t deny a version of the Zuma or something it, but said that if there going to be such a thing, it have to be right. Trends are being observed, and they to build what customers

Things are adding up and the future of scooting looks promising.

To be fair and looking at it objectively outside of my young and speed-addled (That’s what we always JB), the Zuma serves as the around-town commuter that it was to be. Unlike a motorcycle, it actually has a space underneath the seat to a box of Froot Loops and a twelver or such bachelor chow. Or your helmet.

And as for fuel wow- I put in a gallon of fuel, and it seemed to get used up; it’s magic, I tell you. My experiences of trying to mix 2-… oil and gas in the tedious ratios for outboard and chainsaws are a faint memory to the miracle of Auto-Lube (a quart of oil lasts forever).

The Zuma’s, in a handy commuter tool if you have to go too far too fast and overall, a cut above other cheap on the US market. For $1699, it’s to find this level of and suspension, storage and overall of finish. $1699 is less the depreciation of a new SUV when you drive it off the And the Zuma’s a helluva lot easier to
