    The 2021 Yamaha PW50 is a Fantastic Trail Bike for Young Enthusiasts​


    The 2021 Yamaha PW50 is their entry-level super-junior mini trail bike. Intended for preteens, the bike is designed to be able to handle light trail work, although unlike the TT-R50E, it is not meant for long duration trail riding. Yamaha designed this bike to be a great first step for kids interested in learning the ropes about motorcycles and trail bikes, but in a relatively safe package.

    The Japanese-made PW50 is powered by an air-cooled, 50cc, reed-valve 2-stroke engine that is extremely lenient for those little ones getting to grips with motorcycles. Torque is rated at 2.6 lb-ft, which is enough for a 6-9 year old to get good mileage and appreciation of how a trail bike can ride, accelerate, brake, but without going so far as to be extremely dangerous (all riding carries some risk, but that risk can be mitigated with appropriate gear and bikes).

    The 2021 Yamaha PW50 starts at $1,649 USD / $1,799 CAD.
