The Zuma is perfect for those couples who want to explore Vancouver on one scooter.
This sporty little scooter is powerful enough to take the two of you anywhere you want to go. The BWs also has a large under-seat storage area for any souvenirs you may pick up along the way.
Both rider and passenger must be present at the time of pick up. Due to limited quantity we only allow our double seater scooters to be used with renters taking passengers, in order to accommodate pairs.

At Cycle BC we strive to make your rental experience as fun and safe as possible.
When you arrive at our shop a rental agent will greet you and help get you set up for your scooting adventure! The checkout process starts by filling out a rental agreement, during this step your rental agent will explain all of the details of the contract and answer any questions you might have. This is also a great time to get recommendations on suggested routes and must see sights. Once we have the initial paperwork out of the way, your rental agent will assist you and your passenger in picking out proper fitting scooting gear and assigning you your 49cc stead for the day. The final step of the checkout process is training, it starts by walking you through all of the controls on the scooter, after you are familiarized with your scoot we will cover some basic riding techniques to make sure you feel comfortable and ready for the road, lastly we will cover some final safe riding recommendations before we set you free! This entire process can be as quick as ten minutes or as long as it needs to make sure you feel confident for the road. During your rental you if any questions come up a Cycle BC representative will always be a phone call away.

The Yamaha BWS's are much larger and difficult to control than our smaller single seater Honda Jazz scooters. We require that the driver has had some previous riding experience on a scooter or a motorcycle for the safety of everyone involved.
We only have a limited amount of our Yamaha BWS's available. That means we want to hold on to our two seaters for those taking a passenger so we can best accommodate all of our renters. Your passenger must be present at the time of rental so we can properly fit them with a helmet and to sign a liability release.
Please read our rental policies for additional information.
