The Vino 125 (photo right) is a scooter introduced by Yamaha Motor Company in 2004 as a larger brother to the 49cc Yamaha Vino/Vino Classic (photo bottom, left), replacing the Yamaha Riva 125 (XC125) scooter. Little has changed since the 2004 introduction of the Vino 125 with the exception of color choices. Because of the engine size and top speed, in many US States, the Vino 125 requires a motorcycle license to legally operate. The Vino 125 has a relatively low seat height, making it popular among smaller riders.

The Vino 125 has an air-cooled 124 cc (7.6 cu in) single-cylinder 4-stroke SOHC engine. The engine has a fan for supplemental cooling. It has a Mikuni BS carburetor with an auto-choke and carburetor heat device. Emissions controls are a catalyzed muffler, AIR Injection system, and an evaporative fuel canister. The braking system is a 180 mm (7.1 in) single disc front brake and a 110 mm drum rear brake. The tires are 3.50x10.

Popular modifications for the Vino 125 include Asian Market taillights and the addition of a rear basket or case hinged to allow access to the fuel tank. Other popular modifications include chrome front fender and side trims.

The Vino has a very similar counterpart in Thailand, called Fino, which looks almost identical.
