Both Vino models are step-through scooters with 1950s-inspired styling. The Vino Classic has a liquid-cooled, 49cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder engine with an OHV configuration, and a Teikei carburetor. The twist-and-go continuously variable transmission, standard for scooters, works with a belt drive for the rear wheel. A telescopic fork, with 2.1 inches of travel, and a twin-sided swing arm provide the suspension. Drum brakes in front and back offer all the stopping power a vehicle with a top speed of 30 miles an hour could need, though the original Vino had a disc brake in front (disc brakes are more effective when wet).
