The Yamaha e-Vino, a cute little retro-inspired electric scooter that invokes some serious Vespa vibes, was never much of a powerhouse. But now, Yamaha is making the scooter slightly more enticing with some performance bumps on the newest model.

Available exclusively in Yamaha’s domestic Japanese market, the original e-Vino electric scooter was purely an urban affair.

When we first covered the little runabout, we largely panned its specs of a 580W continuous-rated motor that only got the cute little thing up to around 27 mph (44 km/h).

The single 500Wh battery wasn’t much to write home about either, barely offering a range of 18 miles (29 km) in slow mode. A second battery option doubled the range, but 2x something small is still pretty small.

Now, the new e-Vino is taking a few strides to bump up those rookie numbers.
