Default Yamaha Zuma Scooters

I'm in the market to two scooters. So far I like the Yamaha Zuma the best, but am very flexible.

If any one knows of two similiar to this for sale anywhere in the area, please let me know.

The local dealer wants $1799.00 plus tax for these.

What is a fair price, I did not know what to offer him if I decide to go with new ones.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

are those the ones with the dual headlights and bigger knobby tires? If so they are a blast! 3 of us rented some of them in KW about 5yrs ago! Had a blast going offroad with them! One guy busted a shock jumping it they hit him up for $150

Yes, those are the ones.

Good size tires, dual headlights, disc brake on front, shaft drive, large storage under the seat, can ride two people, 49CC 2-cycle engine.

What impresses me is that they seem to be the choice mode of transportation for those that have lost their license because of DUI in this area. I saw three on the road just today in our small town!

Maybe an OSO multi-purchase discount?

I might be interested. Anybody else?

Let me see how much I can get them for. I work at a Yamaha dealer. I'll get back to you.

Check the Yamaha scooters that are for the Canadian market. I can't remember the model designations but they have a bunch more cooler scoots than we have for the US market. A friend will be able to give me the model numbers.. They order them by the truckload for sale here cause they are priced comparably with the US models but are really cool.

wait, I just looked it up - it's the B4. After looking and then remembering, it's basically the Zuma with a bigger front disc and they have had it for several years whereas we just got them.

Nevermind. (although Aprilia makes some cool Canada scoots that aren't available here too).
