Don't get me wrong I loved riding my Ruckus around town. I put out of my head the fact that it only went about 37 miles an hour. I always rode in the right lane and always looking in the rear view mirrors for trafic coming up behind me. Always looking for side streets to get where I was going that were 35 and under and bummed when I got stuck on 45 mile an hour roads.
Well that has all changed since I bought the 125 Zuma. Everything about this bike sends the fun factor way up over the Ruckus.
I can ride on any street other than the freeway and keep up with traffic even the speeders. The handling feels solid and the bars sit tall giving a good seat position. The brakes are substantially more responsive. This bike corners fantastic.
I didn't like that only one head light worked at a time so I ordered a harness that consisted of 2 wires that basically jumper the 2 lights together and now they both work as well as the high low beam function.
I ordered the rack and zip tied a wire black basket and it didnt make the Zuma look as goofy as I thought it would but really like to be able to carry more stuff including my dog Bongo who likes riding around town chasing cars in style.
If you are thinking about getting a scooter I highly recommend the Zuma 125. You can't go wrong with this bike and will not be sorry you bought one. I haven't checked other larger scooters but didn't want anything bigger than the Zuma.
Although the seat has plenty of room for 2 people My wife said the foot rests cause her feet to point outward and it wasn't as comfortable as she would have hoped. I guess she needs her own Zuma.
