Day to day operations are achieved with ease, parking, manoeuvring putting the bike up on it’s stand are all made massively more simple thanks to the light kerb weight. Storage is somewhat less than inspiring, the under-seat compartment will not take a full-face helmet although an open face unit will go in with ease. There is a small front glove box to hold your phone and wallet and a rear rack that will take a top box or can be used to strap some luggage onto.

All in all if you want a 50cc scooter that looks the part and your daily tasks don’t require too much distance or large hills the Vino is worth a look. The real positives of this machine are the beautiful fit and finish along with super comfortable ride. Add to this the great styling, adequate performance and low weight Yamaha’s Vino will continue to find plenty of admirers.

i have the 2006 vino 50 and it gets 90-100 miles per gallon.
cruising speed is about 35mph, if you're going even slightly downhill you'll hit 40.
i haven't bought a helmet yet so i can't confirm the storage. it's a fun bike though and pretty stylish. i still feel kind of gay riding a 50cc scooter, though. especially when a dealer told me that shade of blue is what girls ride in asia. oh well.
