For those who primarily take the side streets to work with the occasional unpaved road—yes, unpaved road—the 2020 Yamaha Zuma 125 is a sporty scooter that is touted to have “rugged styling” appropriate for such purposes. Its steel frame, cast aluminum wheels shod with block-pattern tires, 3.1-inch rear suspension travel, front fender, off-road-style brush deflectors, and fork boots are indicators of its light unpaved road capabilities while its electric starter, automatic transmission, 7.7 gallons of storage, and step-through design make it a convenient commuter. It is powered by a 125cc four-stroke engine to get its claimed 103 mpg from a 1.7-gallon fuel tank.
