announced the C3 (pronounced C cubed) as of their 2007 North line up (USA Canada). The C3 was the American name for the XF50 which was sold as the ‘Vox’ in and the ‘Giggle’ in many European The C3 was the third 50cc scooter in already strong lineup 50 and Zuma).

While not as popular as the Yamaha’s, the C3 sold well to last for 5 years in the USA (2007 2011). In Canada the XF50 was after 2010, but not before some great colour like the military inspired Greenish Gray’ and the two tone option. For 2012 the C3 didn’t the USA cut, but its high tech engine does live on in the 50 and the third generation (2012) 50F .


This great engine is perhaps the most thing about the C3. Yamaha the bar for 50cc engine technology in when they slipped a new injected, liquid cooled and engine into their 2-… Vino. It’s same great engine Yamaha used in the new for 2007 C3 and in the 2012 Zuma 50F.

engine was not only technologically of anything else to date, also more powerful and efficient than Honda’s 50cc engine (the used in the Ruckus Metropolitan). to the 50cc 4-… Honda’s, the C3 is accelerating with a similar or higher top speed around (64-70km/hr). The C3’s top speed is restricted by a washer that the top end gearing of the variator.

Removing this adds a few mph but it decreases up hill performance due to the gearing.

The fuel milage for engine is amazing, but don’t set fuel budget based on the posted on Yamaha’s Canadian Yamaha reports a fuel of 138mpg but that’s assuming you at a constant speed of 25mph Ask anyone who’s ever a 50cc 4-… and they’ll you that this is unrealistic.

4-… are driven wide 95% of the time so real world milage for the C3 is normally in the (still impressive) 100-110mpg range.

and Amenities

Other than the engine, Yamaha has also the C3 huge storage under the which comes in very for many items. Laptop often fit well in this but unfortunately it’s not deep to swallow a helmet. Considering huge storage capacity to be the main focus of this some people might be by this.

The C3 also has a fuel gauge you don’t find on every scooter. This gauges the up to 1.2 gallons you’ve got in the C3’s located tank. The floorboard is key in the C3, because it frees up the entire area for storage. Most scooters hold their under the seat which gravity instead of a fuel to deliver the fuel.

The C3 uses a expensive fuel pump frees up much appreciate A recall does exist for models pertaining to the fuel The fuel pump commonly starting/running difficulties and it poses a danger, so have Yamaha this.

Other nice design include the inclusion of kickstand centerstand), the inverted front and the classy five spoke On the downside, Yamaha had to pinch somewhere so they opted to use a drum brake up front of a disc like they use on the 50 and Zuma. Perhaps Yamaha up too much of the budget with the tech engine.


not to like about the C3? I’m to tip toe around this one, but I it’s fair to say that the isn’t for everyone. I suspect Yamaha knows this they call it the Giggle in

A lot of the design elements are nice floorboard, rims, exhaust, but the front headlight and fender are a bit cartoon-ish for some people

Overall, if you like the styling, is one awesome scooter for you thanks to its storage and outstanding motor. If you you could utilize the XF50’s aftermarket parts industry to the look or you could look at the similar and retro styled If storage is your primary the Honda Elite 110 had perhaps the underseat storage area of any scooter, with two helmets inside.

Other 50cc options from the C3’s era the Honda Ruckus. 2012 Zuma, Vespa’s LX/S 50 and Like 50 .
