2018 Yamaha Zuma 125


The Zuma 125 includes great off-road-inspired styling, huge fuel economy, powerful rear brake, plush suspension and tons of storage.

Additional Features

  • AGGRESSIVE HEADLIGHTS AND STYLING: Two bright halogen headlights light the way, with the sculpted bodywork smoothly wrapping around the aggressive lighting design.
  • PLENTY OF STORAGE: The underseat storage compartment’s cavernous 7.7-gallon capacity is roomy enough for a full-face helmet, while a cup holder and fold-out cargo hook on the dash makes it easy to bring it all with you.
  • MODERN GAUGE PACKAGE: The Zuma 125’s stylish LCD meter features a fuel gauge as well as a full range of indicator lights.
  • SECURE AND CONVENIENT: Zuma 125 provides both a centerstand and side stand for parking convenience. For extra security when parked, the main switch is equipped with a keyhole lock cover. And the fuel filler is found just left of the ignition switch for easy refueling.


  • HARDY STEEL FRAME: Robust steel-tube frame is light but strong, and features a step-through design for easy mounting. A two-stage electrostatic painting process provides a durable, corrosion-resistant finish.
  • DURABLE SUSPENSION: Telescopic fork features beefy outer tubes for strength, while fork boots help protect the large 33mm inner tubes from debris. The swingarm features twin rear shocks with a full 3.1 in of travel for riding comfort on the street and unpaved roads, too.
  • GENEROUS FUEL RANGE: Fuel tank holds 1.7 gallons for plenty of cruising range. Fuel tank emissions system includes a charcoal canister to control gasoline evaporation and reduce air pollution.
  • HEAVY-DUTY TIRES AND WHEELS: Fat 120/70-12 front and 130/70-12 rear tires have an aggressive looking block pattern for great handling on unpaved roads and on the street. Tires run on lightweight five-spoke die-cast aluminum wheels.
  • HIGH QUALITY BRAKING: 245 mm hydraulic front disc and 200 mm rear disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power, while the wave-type front rotor design adds cutting-edge style.
  • COMFORTABLE ERGONOMICS: A plush and roomy riding position is ready for two, with a narrow seat design for easier flat-footing at stops, and plenty of leg space in front of the rider’s seat. Meanwhile, the passenger gets secure handholds that blend cleanly into the Zuma 125’s body design.


  • POTENT FUEL INJECTED ENGINE: Zuma 125’s fuel-injected, 125 cc single cylinder, 4-stroke engine pumps out lots of power for its size, using an SOHC 4-valve head with 10:1 compression ratio and ceramic-composite cylinder plating. Fuel injection provides the optimal fuel mixture for varying conditions, and that means easy cold starts, too.
  • ELECTRIC STARTER: Pushbutton electric starting makes the Zuma 125 super-convenient for transportation.
  • MODERN RELIABILITY: For reliability and easy maintenance, simple wet-sump lubrication is used. Forced air cooling system helps keep engine temperatures under control, even while idling at stoplights, for maximum efficiency and longer engine life.
  • AUTOMATIC CONVENIENCE: Fully automatic, V-belt transmission with centrifugal clutch provides easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation with great off-the-line acceleration.
  • READY TO GET DIRTY: Oiled-paper type air filter helps trap dirt before it gets to your engine, even when riding on unpaved roads. The V-belt housing has its own off-road-style wet-foam air filter for durability.
  • CLEAN-RUNNING DESIGN: Upswept muffler incorporates exhaust catalyst technology to reduce air pollution and meet emission regulations.

Top Features

  • RUGGED MODERN DESIGN: Beneath the sleek styling, the Zuma 125 is built around a strong steel frame with fat, aggressive tires on cast aluminum wheels, tough suspension, and protective off-road-style brush deflectors and fork tube boots. This scooter boasts capability on roads of all sorts, with plenty of attitude for your daily commute.
  • POTENT FUEL INJECTED ENGINE: Powering the Zuma is a compact 125 cc 4-stroke engine with 4 valves, a 10:1 compression ratio, ceramic-composite cylinder liner, and electronic fuel injection—giving this scooter modern reliability and economical performance. With an amazing 103 mpg and a 1.7 gallon fuel tank, you get plenty of range, too.
  • AUTOMATIC CONVENIENCE: A fully-automatic V-belt transmission and push-button electric starting make the Zuma 125 super-convenient transportation. Standard center and side stands, along with a locking cover on the ignition switch, make it easy and secure to park, too.
  • ROOMY, STEP-THROUGH ERGONOMICS: There’s room for two atop the Zuma’s seat, and lots of locking storage beneath it. The step-through floorboards making getting on and off a breeze, too.
