2013 Yamaha Vino 50 Features and Benefits

  • Peppy, 49cc, liquid-cooled (with fan assist), SOHC, 3-valve, 4-stroke engine puts out lively, predictable power with incredible gas mileage. The design concept of this engine is peppy performance with low noise, low emissions, and low fuel consumption.
  • Fuel consumption to be announced.
  • Easy, dependable electric starting with backup kick starter.
  • The lightweight aluminum cylinder features a ceramic composite coating which is applied directly to the aluminum, eliminating the need for a heavy iron sleeve. The ceramic coating insures faster, more uniform heat dissipation, reduced friction and a longer service life.
  • Three valve cylinder head design utilizes two intake valves (15.5mm) and one exhaust valve (16.5mm). The dual intake valves allow more fuel and oxygen to enter the engine for increased power output.
  • Special "carbon cutter" valve design removes any carbon build-up on the valve stems to keep the engine operating at maximum efficiency, especially when the unit is being ridden at slow speed for prolonged periods of time.
  • Roller rocker arms are used to actuate the valves. The roller rockers reduce friction and mechanical noise to a minimum for a quiet, enjoyable ride.
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces mechanical engine noise and maintenance time.
  • Liquid-cooling with fan assist is used to maintain stable engine temperatures even during stop and go city riding. Liquid-cooling allows for a higher state of tune for increased engine performance. The radiator is positioned longitudinally in the frame next to the engine.
  • Centrifugal oil filtering system is used. This type of oil "filter" automatically removes any particles found in the oil and never requires cleaning or maintenance.
  • New throttle body fuel injection provides crisp throttle response, reduced emissions and reduced fuel consumption.
  • Easy access, paper-type air filter is used. Total air box capacity is 2.0 liters for excellent performance and reduced intake noise.
  • Fully automatic, V-belt CVT transmission ensures easy, twist-the-throttle-and-go operation. There is no clutch or gear shifting to worry about. A wide range reduction ratio is used for peppy performance.
  • Maintenance-free TCI (transistor controlled) ignition system with 2-D mapping provides a precise, high-voltage spark for fast starts and crisp engine performance at all rpms.
  • Air induction system (AIS) is used to reduce harmful exhaust emissions. The AIS system injects oxygen into the exhaust to ensure complete fuel combustion, thereby reducing both hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
  • Exhaust system and muffler produce a very quiet environmentally friendly exhaust note. The muffler features a catalytic coating to further reduce harmful exhaust emissions.
