Just for what it's worth: I've had both.

In scoots, I started with a 150cc Buddy 'International' series 'Italia'.

That's a good machine, a solid, quality machine. But i 'outgrew' it real quick - 'outgrew' in terms of handling, and of sheer torquey pulling-power, right out of the box. With simple final drive gearing upgrades, the fun doubled.

And - when the urge takes me - the Z125 has no problem on dirt trails.

Gee - if a i had some spare, geetas, i'd be all over your TW...

There's a fellow over on the Zuma forum who makes highway pegs for the 125 Zuma. More wiggle room.

Got those pegs - very nice; legs stretch way out when they need to.

I like to vary leg/sitting position a lot during long rides - when I first had the Buddy, one major complaint was the lack of options for foot placement and forward leg room. Pegs would've helped - issue got talked about a lot over on the modernbuddy forum a couple years ago, poss. retrofits, etc.,...
