  • Perfect For My Needs
    By  (I am an Owner) on Apr 18, 2021

    Ive been riding Vinos since 2010. The 2008 model is my second one. I ride in a city of 4 million and this scooter has never let me down. It always starts, even in the cold Canadian winter. Ive never experienced this wobbling people are talking about, and Ive been in a few sticky situations. You cant ...

  • Vino rated #43 out of 85?!?!?
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 12, 2014

    I was wondering why the 2008 Vino was rated so low on this site, and I saw why. One reviewer gave it a 1 STAR even though they gave it wonderful words! And two others gave it 1 stars because of a "wobble". I have one and I LOVE it! It is great quality, has nice power, extremely quiet, and just lives ...

  • Really nice ride, great mileage
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 23, 2013

    I have a beautiful Vino that I have customized. Great for city and urban riding. Never squirrley with me but you need to know how to ride. It is a motorcycle not a bike! 110 MPG easily. Love it! And it's for sale! I want to buy a horse actually!

  • In Love
    By  (I am an Owner) on Mar 20, 2013

    I love it, the scooter has turned out to be a wonderful investment. I have never ridden a scooter before and when I first tried it was very nimble and quick. Kinda hard to get use to. But after the first two weeks I fell in love. The only problem would be the silencer. It has a 45 degree angle in ...

  • 2008 Vino 125
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jul 27, 2010

    This little scooter runs great and the gas mileage is hard to beat, I've gotten 90mpg, but does depend on how you ride it. As far as the wobble, since it's an automatic shifter you do need to really pay attention to traffic ahead and break SLOWLY. Trying to slam breaks on like a conventional moter ...

  • EXTRA - CAREFUL PLEASE, PLEASE
    By  (I am a Writer) on Jun 25, 2009

    My 17 year old son bought a Y125V in November 2008 and, 15 minutes later on the drive home it began to wobble with him, he lost control and is now a paraplegic. He had grown up on dirt bikes. This may be a good scooter but needs special care when riding. After months of rehab, we are selling the ...

  • Jammie Yammie
    By  (I am an Owner) on Nov 28, 2008

    This is just abt a perfect scoot in every way but one: the daft position of the filler cap - right under where you've stored your strap-ons for a weekend away. Or where you've just loaded your excess bag of groceries.

    How the tall-domes at Yamaha came up with that one, no idea.

    Otherwise, ...

  • Careful Please
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 12, 2008

    My wife recently bought a new Vino and loved scooting around town. As has been written elsewhere on the web, while attempting to slow down under emergency braking while in traffic, the bike started to get squirrely, wobbled and went down. Please be VERY careful. Even though she had ridden motorcycles ...

  • The bike I should have had all along...
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 09, 2008

    This is the perfect commuter bike for me. It's tiny, yet powerful and stable. it gets great gas mileage and handles extremely well. It is the first two-wheeled vehicle that I have found melds perfectly with me, is an extension of my body as it flies down the road. It will do 55, but it is happiest ...

    I have had many different bikes, this is by far the best I have yet owned, and I see myself riding this tiny powerhouse for the foreseeable future.
