Following the rugged Zuma 125, Yamaha has added another model to its growing collection of quirky scooters. Meet the Vinoora: an oddly cute two-wheeler from the Japanese brand that’s sorta reminiscent of some kind of cartoon character.
First introduced as a 2020 model in the Taiwanese market, the quirky Vinoora features distinct ‘newtro’ styling—a combination of ‘new’ and ‘retro’—evidenced by the rounded classic lines and modern design cues. The unique LED front and rear lighting gives the Vinoora a signature look that Yamaha characterizes as “playful and funny.”
Underneath the scooter’s googly-eyed exterior is a 125cc single-cylinder engine with a claimed fuel consumption figure of 57.7km/L. No official power figures have been disclosed for this little mill, but total output isn’t really the name of the game anyway for a little scoot meant primarily for city use. Helping the Vinoora make the most of its four-liter fuel tank are Yamaha’s Blue Core technology, a Smart Start system, and start/stop functionality.
Bringing the 94kg scooter to a stop are a single disc brake up front and a drum in the rear. Holding the Vinoora up off the ground are an upright front fork and single rear shock. A digital gauge cluster provides the rider with all necessary info, while a USB power socket keeps the rider’s devices topped up.
This charimsatic little runabout comes in Dark Blue, Gray, Green, and White. A Matte Black option is available to those who opt for the M trim, which includes a brown seat cover, headlight guards, a pillion grab rail, and chrome accents. The Vinoora M is marketed as a scooter that channels British styling and sensibilities, and would not look out of place taking part in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.
Pricing for this scooter in the Vietnam market has yet to be announced, while pricing in Taiwan starts at 17,900 Taiwan dollars, or P134,673 for the standard Vinoora, and 18,700 or P140,692 for the dapper Vinoora M.
