Vino 125 Pros and Cons
Granted this is a 3 year old thread, but it keeps coming up for air.
I have been riding a Yamaha Vino 125 for the last month, and here are a couple of things I've observed.
This thing is Slooooow. Probably could be improved with lighter rollers.
Small Fuel Tank
Very low ground clearance.
Engine is harder to get at than most scooters in this displacement range.
Not a lot of aftermarket fun parts.
Solid little bike, much tighter after 5K miles than most Taiwanese scooters. Excellent fit, finish and paint quality.
Headlight is part of fairing, not handlebars, better lighting at night.
Excellent brakes and stability while stopping.
If you like to keep things stock, want to buy once and be done with it, and want something a little bigger than a 50cc bike for runs to the store and occasionally riding around downtown with a passenger, this is an excellent choice. If you are looking for something to ride back and forth twenty miles each way to work on 55 MPH+ roads, I wouldn't recommend it.
