Yamaha “Vino” … WTF?

July 4, 2008

So, uh, anyone seen one of these?

Yamaha Vino

…The Yamaha “Vino” always puzzles me as a name choice for any vehicle.

Vino, of course, being the Italian word for “wine” … does naming a scooter after alcohol strike anyone as a good idea?  Sure, it’s not going to immediately inspire riders to start swilling down hooch while driving, but there are still things that should not necessarily have name association, and I’m pretty certain that drinking & driving are exactly such things.
