Yamaha introduced the 1981 Y-Zinger, renaming it the PW50 in 1991. It’s been virtually unchanged (other than color) since.
This nearly indestructible little dirt bike has an air-cooled 49cc two-stroke motor, a single-speed transmission with a centrifugal clutch, and maintenance-free shaft drive. An adjustable throttle stop gives parents the ability to manage power output.Handlebar levers operate front and rear brakes, and a seat height of only 19 inches makes the PW50 ideally suited for younger riders. With 10-inch wheels and a feathery weight of only 37kg, this little Yamaha is dead-nuts reliable, with minimal maintenance needs.
The PW80's responsive 2-stroke engine is designed to please both riders and their parents. Its compact and lightweight design keeps overall bike weight down to just 61 kg for easy handling - and features like the easily-accessible spark plug and side-mounted carburettor mean that routine maintenance really is kid's play.
The TT-R50E from Yamaha has surely got to be every youngster's dream come true. Everything about this rider-friendly mini-bike is designed to create a fun and enjoyable experience for riders between 4 and 7 years of age. For simple riding, the electric-start 50cc 4-stroke engine is equipped with a semi-automatic 3-speed gearbox - and for added parental control the TT-R50E can only be started with the ignition key inserted. The rugged blue bodywork has been inspired by Yamaha's GP-winning MX bikes, and with long-travel suspension and knobbly tyres, the TT-R50E is ready to provide many hours of fun for all the family.
