    I was looking at Yamaha's scooters that are for sale in 06. I really like the looks of the Zuma. When I checked the Cdn. Yamaha web site they only list a scooter called a BW. Though it looks the same the spec sheet notes that it is 15lbs heavier.

    Does anyone know of any other differences OR is the weight diff. a typo ?

    You need to get on a Yamaha euro website and check it out. The US never got the BW and it looks like 05 is the last year for Zuma for us (I have been trying to find a blue one with any luck) Some say we will get some sort of 4 stroke replacement down here for late 06 or early 07

    What we know and love as the 50cc Zuma in the US is the BW elsewhere, 50 & 100cc.

    IIRC.

    Ah, a bored/stroked BWS 100 2T.... :jose A nice thought. :nod
