2007 Yamaha C3 | Motor Scooter Preview

Seasoned riders will remember the Cushman scooters that inexpensively transported people and cargo from the 1930s until the mid-’60s. Yamaha has tapped the spirit of the Cushman for its all-new 2007 C3, which is something of a replacement for the best-selling Zuma scooter, as the friendly two-stroke has fallen victim to EPA emissions regulations. Christened the C3 (cargo cubed) due to its nine gallons of cubic storage space, the scooter is powered by a fuel-injected, three-valve, SOHC, air-cooled 49cc motor. Yamaha claims the C3 gets 116 mpg and will trek 28,000 miles between valve adjustments. A fully automatic belt/pulley transmission makes operation nearly effortless.
