Let us understand what Yamaha has put new in their 2022 Zuma model.

125cc Liquid cool engine

Fully automatic V-belt transmission with centrifugal clutch provides easy. Twist-the-throttle-and-go operation with great off-the-line acceleration.

An upswept muffler incorporates two exhaust catalysts to reduce air pollution and meet emission regulations.


A reliable steel engine bracket with rubber bushing linkage contributes to a comfortable ride with reduced vibration.

The link mechanisms are positioned on the underside of the chassis to maximise space for the storage compartment.

A decompression mechanism on the Zuma 125 reduces the engine cranking compression pressure. They are combined with a starter-generator control unit for a smooth, quiet engine that starts with better fuel consumption.

The Zuma 125’s engine features Yamaha’s Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) technology, changing valve timing at different rpm for linear acceleration. Strong torque at lower speeds and power that lasts into the top-end.

Yamaha’s Blue Core 125cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke.The single-cylinder engine delivers excellent fuel efficiency and significant power for its compact size. 

Using a SOHC 4-valve head with an 11.2:1 compression ratio. A DiASil cylinder and an aluminium alloy forged piston. The fuel injection provides the optimal fuel mixture for varying conditions, including easy cold starts.


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 dedicated foldable footrests and secure handholds that blend cleanly into the Zuma 125’s body design.

The telescopic fork features beefy outer tubes for strength. While fork boots help protect the large 33mm inner tubes from debris. 

The rear wheel swingarm features twin rear shocks with a full 3.1 in travel for comfortable riding on streets and unpaved roads.

The Zuma 125 boasts extreme fuel efficiency carrying the 1.6-gallon fuel tank over a wide cruising range. Its fuel tank emissions system includes a charcoal canister to control gasoline evaporation and reduce air pollution.


The robust steel tube frame is light but strong and features a step-through design for easy mounting.

Fat 120/70-12 front and 130/70-12 rear DURO tubeless tires have an aggressive looking block pattern combined with newly designed lightweight wheels. For excellent handling on unpaved roads and the street.

245mm hydraulic front disc and 230mm rear disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power, while the wave-type front rotor design adds cutting-edge style. 


With a unified brake system. The rear brake lever applies braking force to the front brake while keeping the front brake from operating alone for a safe and smooth-controlled stop.
