Big bike thrills
You’re eager to experience that rush of adrenalin. You want to feel the freedom of being in complete control of your life. And you can have a taste of all that, riding the TZR50.
The TZR50 can be your first step into the world of superbike power and performance: with its 6-speed manual gearbox, a race-style, liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine, powerful brakes and sports-style suspension.
The TZR50 draws on Yamaha’s history of pioneering achievement, on and off the racetrack. So you'll definitely recognise its iconic R-series styling. And, as a racer through-and-through, the TZR50 is your entry to big bike thrills.
Sleek, aerodynamic bodywork
The TZR50’s sleek, aerodynamic bodywork looks great, but it’s not just about eye-catching racetrack style. The full cowling with ‘fox-eye’ headlights, integrated indicators and factory-style graphics cuts through the air for enhanced performance and comfort. The aerodynamic seat unit – with room for two – completes the job in supersport style.
Liquid cooled 50cc 2-stroke engine
The TZR50 is powered by a high-tech 2-stroke engine, which is liquid-cooled for superbly consistent performance. The lightweight engine features reed-valve induction, providing smooth, punchy power throughout the rev range, and is complemented by a supersports-style exhaust for optimum efficiency.
6-speed manual gearbox
The motorcycle-style 6-speed manual gearbox gives you a taste of big bike riding and helps you perfect your riding technique. The precision gear change linkage ensures smooth shifting and helps keep the zippy 2-stroke engine in its sweet zone.
Lightweight alloy wheels
Ten-spoke alloy wheels with 17inch tyres give great grip in all conditions. Lightweight alloys look good, delivering better handling, steering, cornering and stability. Powerful front and rear disc brakes (280/220 mm), telescopic front forks and monoshock rear suspension offer the braking and handling you expect as you step up to supersport biking.
R1-style instrument panel
You’ll know you’re on a serious bike every time you glance at the TZR50’s stunning R1-style instrument panel. The panel – including an LCD speedometer and a big, centrally mounted analogue tachometer – provides a clear, instant view of the bike’s progress and keeps you on track, wherever you're going.
Dual seat with grab handle and flip-out foot rests
The closer you look, the more genuine supersport kit you see. The TZR50 features the same high tail as its bigger R-series brothers, with a roomy dual seat and passenger grab handle. The fold-up foot rests are a superb detail: textured for extra grip and extra control.
