2013 Yamaha Vino Review


The Yamaha Vino is an economical and compact scooter that features a retro styling. The Vino was introduced in the middle 2000s and has been a popular choice for those looking for a fun and practical mode of commuting to work and school every day. After producing the Vino for a number of years, Yamaha gave the Vino a year off, with no 2012 model having been made available. There was also at one time a Yamaha Vino 125, but that model was discontinued in 2009. But the 50cc Vino Classic has come roaring back for 2013 and is a stylish and capable contender in the compact scooter market. The Yamaha Vino is distinct in the way that it combines classic styling with modern engineering. The Vino was designed as a simple but elegant transportation solution that would help people get where they’re going with maximum efficiency, while also looking stylish in the process. The 2013 Yamaha Vino Classic continues the model’s tradition of classic styling paired with modern technology and engineering. The 2013 Vino is a compact scooter with elegant lines and a defined profile, that’s powered by a highly efficient, fuel injected four-stroke engine. It you’re looking for practical, affordable transportation around town, the 2013 Yamaha Vino is worth checking out.

The 2013 Vino boasts the same classic retro scooter styling that previous year models have been known for. However despite the fact that it looks straight out of an Italian film from the 1960s, the Vino takes full advantage of the latest in modern engineering. The 2013 model is fuel injected, easy to start, and delivers a throttle response that’s smooth and even. With 110-mpg fuel economy, the 2013 Yamaha Vino is an ultra-economical mode of transport that’s fun, convenient, and parks anywhere. Not only that, but with its quality paint and chrome work, the Vino looks good wherever it goes and will continue to do so for some time. It’s also got a spacious locking storage compartment that can conveniently accommodate backpacks or grocery bags. The 2013 Vino is powered by a 49cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine and features an electric starting and kickstart system that are both reliable. The scooter’s fully automatic V-belt transmission makes for easy throttle operation and the ignition system provides a precise, high-voltage spark that facilitates a seamless engine performance. The Vino’s open, step-through steel-tube frame makes mounting and dismounting easy and convenient, while telescopic front forks provide for excellent bump and shock absorption on the road. The wide, thickly padded seat is not only comfortable, but also lends to the Vino’s sleek retro looks. There is also a rear wheel-locking feature that helps protect the bike against theft by locking the rear wheel and making it extremely hard to move the scooter. Additionally there is a cover for the ignition switch to prevent it from being tampered with. The headlights and turn signal housings feature cool styling that also adds to the Vino’s looks. Other stylish features include the speedometer, mirrors, handlebars, and rear chrome cargo rack. The instrument panel on the 2013 Vino is easy to read and the speedometer features an integrated fuel gauge that helps riders keep track of gas levels. Floorboards are full-size and the Vino’s wide, sculpted front apron provides for protection against splashes and wind, while further adding to the bike’s classic styling.

Having given the Vino a year off, Yamaha made few changes to the 2013 Yamaha Vino Classic. The model’s retro looks give it a style that is timeless, while the efficient 49cc four-stroke engine has been refined over the years and delivers fuel economy that is superior to 99 percent of the vehicles on the road today. The 2013 model demonstrates why the Yamaha Vino Classic remains a popular choice for riders who are looking for a fun, efficient, and ultra-stylish solution to their transportation needs.
