Post zuma or vino 125??!!
i'm way more partial to the styling of the zuma, but dealers here suck and i don't wanna deal with them and their crappy prices.

i can get a z125 shipped here, and pay anywhere from about 2900-3100 OTD with shipping and taxes i'll have to pay once it gets here

or i found a dude selling an 06 dark gray vino 125 with about 1300 miles on it for 1200 bucks.

i'm not nuts about the vino, but at the price i could pay it in cash and just be done with the thing, whereas the zuma i'd pay half cash and charge the rest and make payments over 3-4 months to kill it off.

overall just based on styling, i'd be happier with the zuma though lol. ugh i dono what to do...

I agree with the Zuma. On the other hand the economy sucks and cash is king. If you can afford the Zuma cash go for it. If you are going to have to finance it but could by the Vino cash I would go with the Vino. The more money you can keep in you pocket right now the better. As the economy crumbles even further those with cash will be able to pick up some awesome deals. Just hold the money close and pounce on the right deal.

Zuma.

I looked at a Vino last year, couldn't stand the styling.

Maybe you should take a trip to one of the high volume dealers in Socal.

I like them both.
No one it selling a lot of aftermarket parts for the Vino125.
So, if you enjoy tinkering, the Zuma is the better choice between the two.

i've hit up a few, but none of them are offering anything good deal wise unlike the dealers in the middle of the country. the one i've found is in kansas is the one basically selling it at the best price.

i've also found a 2008 kymco agility here, with 8 miles on it. that's not a typo, it has EIGHT miles on it lol. some chick bought it not thinkin you need a ME to ride 125cc here in vegas, so now it's just going to waste for her. it's red black, flawless condition, she wants 1900. any of you guys have expierience with the kymcos? think this might be hit? it looks cooler than the vino that's for sure lol and i think kymco has a 2 year warranty?

Kymcos are the Hyundai of the scooter world. I've heard nothing but good things about their quality and durability

Post settled in on 2 good deals, now what to do!!
so...i found another dealer that miraculously has a black 125cc in stock, willing to let it go for 2900 OTD...not too bad, i can deal with pay about 150 bucks more considering i don't have to pay money to have it shipped.

BUT i also went to check out the kymco super 8 150cc in red black and it's a pretty sweet scoot!! guy also selling for 2900OTD.

zuma better deal cuz it's msrp is 2999 getting it for 2900, yamaha quality.

kymco more power, 2 year stock warranty, for 2900 OTD reminds of aprilia sr50

in terms of power, can anyone comment on if the kymco will outperform the zuma based on the extra 25cc's? the zuma is FI whereas the kymco still has a carburator...does that still effect stock performance, or is the only benefit me not having to rejet the bike everytime i change something lol?


man! decisions decisions...what you guys think? here's a pic of the kymco
